Easy to Test
In order to get an accurate measurement of your actual fuel
economy, we recommend the following steps.
Three Tanks, without your ECO System
Before the ECO System is installed run three full tanks of fuel,
and get your average miles per gallon.
If you always record your fuel use, you probably already know
the miles per gallon your vehicle gets, but if you want a true
calculation, please review our testing procedures. They are not
complicated, they just allow good comparisons.
Some notes on the testing. Please use the same fuel
source/gas station, and try to fill to the same place in your
tank. Some pumps will cut off as 'full' a gallon shorter than
others, so to be consistent, try and use the same pump. Some
fuel formulations differ, and to be accurate, the same source is best.
Depending on where you drive, gasoline may have ethanol
added. A long trip cross country is not always a good test for
the ECO Fuel Saver, since you will have gasoline from several
different sources, and different formulations.
Since we are in the business of fuel savings, we are always studying the MPG our customers get. We have found that different brands of gasoline provide different MPG - before the ECO System install. Using the same brand and station will give you a better comparison.
We have found that diesel fuel is more consistent across the
country, and long distance tests are more accurate than
gasoline engine tests. That said, the more consistent the
source, the more accurate.
With your ECO System
After installing the ECO System, fill up your vehicle and note
your miles per gallon next time you fill up. You should see a
10% or greater improvement in fuel economy. For example if
your vehicle averaged 10 mpg without the ECO System, you
should be getting 11 mpg or greater using the installed ECO
System. You would then have a 10% improvement in fuel economy.
If your vehicle has a miles-per-gallon computer display, it may not reflect the correct MPG for a few tanks. Your pumped fuel usage is the true test.
We recommend that when evaluating the ECO System for commercial purposes that a minimum of five vehicles be selected. This will enable your company to obtain a good performance analysis of the vehicles equipped with the ECO Fuel Enhancer. Of course, if the fleet has different type equipment, more than one test/analysis may be necessary for estimating overall fuel savings.
