Fuel Savings Confirmed by EPA Testing Protocol Carried Out by Automobile Club of Southern California
BAKERSFIELD, CA -- -- 10/15/2004 -- E-Wire -- Green Star Products, Inc. (OTC: GSPI) and American Biofuels (ABF) are pleased to announce that they have recently completed testing of their anti-friction additive “AFT” using EPA testing protocols at the laboratory facilities of the Automobile Club of Southern California. Tests have confirmed a measurable increase in automobile fuel mileage efficiency.
EPA testing protocols are very stringent and require that certain specific parameters be met in order to attain a status of “statistically significant” results that would be acceptable. Testing was completed in June 2004 at the Auto Club’s facility located in Diamond Bar, Los Angeles County, California. The Auto Club is the largest American Automobile Association (“AAA”) affiliate, and has been serving members since 1900. Facility manager, Steven D. Mazor, stated before testing began that “Most previous tests done over the past twenty years, which include the use of many different additives and gadgets, rarely achieve EPA statistically significant status.”
GSPI used a Lexus LS 400 automobile with a 50,000-mile engine for the tests. The Lexus is believed to have one of the most efficient automobile engines manufactured in the world today. After successive baselines and final testing, the fuel economy of the Lexus exhibited an increase in efficiency exceeding the EPA protocol. The protocol required a minimum of 4.9% increase in fuel efficiency in order to achieve a statistically valid confidence level that the fuel economy benefit was real, not just the result of test-to-test variability. The Lexus achieved a 5.7% increase in fuel efficiency. Joseph LaStella, President of GSPI, stated that he was exceedingly happy over the test results. He also noted that in his experiences over the past several years, other automobiles and trucks usually exhibited an even higher fuel efficiency increase. However, achieving a 5.7% increase in fuel efficiency on the Lexus automobile was impressive.
