Tests - Diesel Emissions

In a broad range of testing protocols for diesel engines, we offer this cross-section of evaluations.
Dates of tests are dates of testing completion.

1. Particulate Reduction.

  1. EPA of Greece, Athens, Greece; May 1, 1991
    Tests were conducted to determine possible reduction of Black Smoke emissions.

    TEST % of Increase or Decrease
    Particulate Reduction (Black smoke) - 29 %

  2. Tech. Institute for Urban Transportation, Sofia, Bulgaria; May 18, 1994
    Stringent over-sight testing protocols were in place to determine possible improvement of fuel economy and possible particulate reduction

    TEST % of Increase or Decrease
    Miles per gallon + 2.66 %
    Particulate Reduction (Black smoke) - 30 to 50 %

2. Cloud Point.

  1. When truckers buy fuel, they are not necessarily concerned with fuel quality.
    They should be: Google: diesel fuel cloud point.
  2. Phoenix Chemical Laboratory, Inc., Chicago, IL; October 13, 1993
    A series of tests were conducted to determine the cloud point of diesel fuel treated with RxP Fuel Treatment.
  3. TEST RESULT: Cloud Point with RxP added: Reduction of: -2 Fahrenheit (-18.88 Celsius)

3. Horse Power.

  1. University Automotive Tech., Des Moines, Iowa; April 21, 199
  2. Tests were conducted to determine if RxP Fuel Treatment would improve horse-power.
  3. TEST RESULT: The tests concluded a 10% improvement in horsepower.

4. Efficiency.

  1. Ministry of Health and social Security, Athens General Hospital, Athens, Greece; February 10, 1992.
  2. Protocols were established to test efficiency of adding RxP Fuel Treatment to increase engine efficiency.
  3. TEST RESULT: The tests concluded a 12.5 % increase in operational efficiency.

5. Engine wear.

  1. Ringhaver Equipment Company, Tampa, Florida; Autumn, 1992: Fleet Tests
  2. 1). The primary purpose of this Ringhaver study was to determine if any engine damage was caused over an extended period of time as a result of using RxP Fuel Treatment on a regular basis.
    2). Ringhaver Equipment Co. is the Caterpillar Heavy Equipment distributor in Florida. This study was conducted to substantiate a previous nine-month (2,200 vehicle) study conducted by a city fleet in Florida.
  3. TEST RESULT: Overall evaluation: Compartment wear appears normal.

6. Seal Compatibility.

  1. Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas; January 12, 1994
  2. 1). In January, 1994, the U.S. Government required a drastic reduction of sulfur allowed in diesel fuel sold in the U.S. Sulfur is a natural occurrence in fuel and was accepted as a lubricant. With the removal of sulfur to the mandated quantity, a serious secondary issue was created; O-ring corrosion in diesel powered vehicles.
    2). The Southwest Research test was conducted to confirm that RxP Fuel Treatment would not compound the problem.
    3). Prior to the government mandate, sulfur fuel had a hardness factor of –8. Under mandate, the new low sulfur fuel has a hardness factor of –15.
  3. TEST RESULT: Fuel blended with RxP Fuel Treatment has a hardness factor of –10.
  4. For RxP Fuel treatment to restore O-ring suppleness to within two points of original engineering design quality speaks volumes for the quality of our product.
