EPA EVALUATION OF THE TREIS EMULSIFIER DEVICE UNDER SECTION 511 OF THE MOTOR VEHICLE INFORMATION AND COST SAVINGS ACT
This document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the "Treis Emulsifier" device under provisions of Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. On February 17 1981 the EPA received a request from Treis International for evaluation of a fuel saving device termed "Treis Emulsifier". This Device is designed to generate a gasoline, water-alcohol emulsion. The water is in finite droplet form, evenly dispersed throughout the gasoline and is claimed to prevent premature ignition or knock, and allow a more complete combustion. This is claimed to result in improved fuel economy, torque, and engine life.
