This document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the 'Greer Fuel Pre-Heater' device under provisions of section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. On January 20, 1981, the EPA received a request from Michael M. Greer for evaluation of a fuel saving device termed the Greer Pre-Heater. This device is claimed to make an automobile use a greater percentage of the energy injected into the carburetor and increase the miles per gallon without affecting pollution factors by preheating the gasoline before it reaches the carburetor. The device operates as a tube and shell heat exchanger. It uses the engine coolant as the heat source and transfers this heat to the gasoline by conduction.
