Gas Mileage & Cost Savings

Laboratory testing using the EPA 511 Protocol shows gas mileage increases of as much as 12%. Consumer experiences conducted on a wide variety of cars, light duty trucks and SUV’s in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America have resulted in gas mileage increase up to:

  • 34% on 4-cylinder cars, e.g. Honda Civics, Toyota Corollas, Ford Focuses, etc.
  • 21% on light duty trucks and SUV’s, e.g. GMC 2500s, Chevy Avalanches, Range Rovers, etc.
  • 16% on dual exhaust 8-cylinder sedans, e.g. Lincoln Town Cars, Crown Victorias, etc.
  • 24% on 10 cylinder Box-style trucks, e.g. U-Haul moving trucks.

EPA 511 Testing at ATDS

Testing at ATDS using The EPA 511 Protocol

The Blade's laboratory fuel economy and emission testing were conducted by Lactec Laboratories in Curitiba, Brazil, and Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS), a California based independent testing laboratory which is accepted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is licensed by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

At ATDS the Blade was tested on a 2004 Honda Civic using the EPA 511 Testing Protocol – is a combination of the EPA's FTP-75 and High-way Fuel Economy Tests. The EPA 511 test Protocol is the most rigorous EPA recognized test procedure in existence, and it is the only test procedure that the EPA considers statistically valid.

The Blade has also been tested for fuel economy and durability. Endurance road tests conducted in the United States, Europe and Latin America have shown up to 34% increases in overall fuel savings, while causing no adverse effects to test vehicles after 35,000 miles.
