The journal Energy has published a paper about the recent results of an experimental investigation into the influence of the FPC catalyst on fuel consumption and smoke emissions on a laboratory diesel engine. The fuel consumption and smoke emission were measured as a function of engine load, speed, and catalyst dosing ratio. The brake specific fuel consumption and smoke emission decreased as the dosing ratio of the catalyst doped in the diesel fuel increased. At the catalyst dosing ratio of 1:3200, the brake specific fuel consumption was reduced by from 2.1% to 2.7% and the smoke emission was reduced by from 6.7% to 26.2% at the full engine load at speeds from 2600 rpm to 3400 rpm. The results also indicated that the potential of the fuel saving seems to be greater when the engine was run under light load.
Since this testing was done on a clean, laboratory engine, these results re-confirm that FPC improves engine performance even for new, clean engines. Other fuel additives only clean engines, but FPC both cleans the engine and catalyzes the combustion process with active ingredients not found in other fuel additives. FPC will give you 2.1% to 2.7% more fuel economy than other fuel additives.
