|Official Statement on MPG-CAP™ Performance Characteristics
There appears to be a need for clarification about the technology behind the FFi MPG-CAPS™ due to confusion caused by other less credible fuel additives with similar sounding marketing claims.
First of all, the majority of fuel additives, treatments, and conditioners sold today are merely detergents that serve to clean the fuel system but do nothing to the combustion characteristics of fuel or, more importantly, to the combustion chamber itself. This is the arena in which FFi technology and products are formulated to perform, providing the distinction between our products and all the others.
Since most automobile engines burn fuel at a rate of more than 99% efficiency, claims of improving combustion alone are essentially meaningless. However, the greatest loss in the efficiency of an automobile engine is the loss of heat which drives the piston. Experts in the combustion field say that heat recovery is the only practical way to improve gas mileage on a modern engine. Our product is a combustion chamber treatment that conditions the setting where fuel combustion occurs so that the process uses more of the heat generated by combustion.
Here is the way it works. When an MPG-CAP™ is added to the fuel tank, the fuel carries it to the combustion chamber. Its ingredients are used to treat the metal surfaces by forming a film that is technically called thermally derived oxidation. The carboxylic metal creates an oxide residue on the hot surfaces at the time of combustion.
This process can be compared to the scorching of a pan when cooking. When overheated, the food residue forms a layer on the pan when it is oxidized, leaving a film even after being scrubbed that discolors the pan and appears to permeate the pores of the metal.
Inside an engine cylinder, small amounts of material provided by the MPG-CAPS™ oxidize in high temperatures, rapidly producing a thin layer of film on the cylinder walls, the piston face, and the fire deck that provide several benefits.
First of all, the MPG-CAPS™ change the surface heat absorption characteristics of the metal. The fuel and air mixture produces energy in the form of heat that creates expansion that drives the piston down, and the film inhibits the transfer of radiant heat. This directly results in higher combustion temperature, greater expansion, and more power.
|The second benefit the MPG-CAP™ film provides is a polished surface effect that allows more even distribution of the fuel. It can be compared to the beading of water on a polished paint job. The micro film attracts the liquid fuel resulting in better fuel distribution that shapes the charge to yield more power. |
The third benefit of the film is by serving as a catalyst precursor to react with the catalyst component in the MPG-CAPS™ themselves. The active compounds of the MPG-CAPS™ in combination with the heat in the cylinder cause a catalytic reaction that promotes better disassociation of chemicals and better burn. The catalytic reaction is also exothermic and produces heat. Altogether, these three benefits result in a total of 30 to 40% more expansion in the cylinder with an equal amount of fuel.
Another factor to be considered is the ability of the film created by the MPG-CAPS™ to inhibit the build-up of harmful deposits. This is particularly important in view of the effects that the EPA regulations have had on the automobile industry. In order to comply with EPA mandates to lower emissions, fuel manufacturers have removed lead and added oxygenates to fuel. The repercussion is the building of harmful deposits that tend to soak up fuel and cause performance problems. Decreasing the extent of those deposits is yet another benefit of our product.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly of all, is the reduction of emissions resulting from the use of MPG-CAPS™. The catalytic process found in catalytic converters on exhaust systems is started in the firing cylinder, which reduces the formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx). The work done by the converter is reduced, and life of the converter is extended.
Extensive scientific testing has revealed many positive effects of FFi products, and none that are negative. Distributors and customers have the added security of a world wide insurance policy that covers any possibility of engine damage. There is every reason to be confident in the abilities of the MPG-CAPS to make a favorable difference in your world.
