Fitch Fuel Catalyst now has information from a recently published report from the University of Connecticut Research Institute.
The report states, “We have completed a series of experiments studying and measuring the ability of a novel catalyst to constructively modify commercial gasoline and diesel fuel. This catalyst has the ability to selectively remove hydrogen and or add oxygen to hydrocarbon components of fuel. The catalyst demonstrated the ability to produce reformed fuel species at room temperature, which is novel and provides evidence these catalysts are broadly applicable in fuel applications,” including automotive.
This catalytic effect “leads to enhanced combustion from the hydrocarbon fuel feedstock,” according to the published report.
This catalyst is marketed under the brand names Fitch Fuel Catalyst and the UConn research was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. As reported, a 1 to 2.5 mpg fuel savings are a direct result of using the Fitch Fuel Catalyst. (888-881-2774/www.fitchcatalyst.com)
