FUEL SAVER UPDATED
The Arteflame Fuel Saver is perfect when you want to use your grill for just a couple of steaks, burgers or fish with some veggies. It minimizes the amount of charcoal / wood you need as it concentrates the heat to right under the grill grate. Now you can use your Arteflame Grill with just a minimal amount of fuel.
Place the assembled fuel saver inside your grill and fill it with charcoal. For added flavor, add wood chips / chunks to the charcoal. Using a LOOFT lighter, the fire is blazing hot within 2 minutes and the grill grate can be installed. Since the grill grate is right above the fuel saver, you're ready to cook in less than 10 minutes. Super fast and simple.
The US EPA is required by Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act to test many of these devices and to provide public reports on their efficacy; the agency finds most devices do not improve fuel economy to any measurable degree, unlike forced induction, water injection (engine), intercooling and other fuel economy devices which have been long proven. Tests by Popular Mechanics magazine also found unproven types of devices yield no measurable improvements in fuel consumption or power, and in some cases actually decrease both power and fuel economy.
One reason that ineffective fuel-saving gadgets are popular is the difficulty of accurately measuring small changes in the fuel economy of a vehicle. This is because of the high level of variance in the fuel consumption of a vehicle under normal driving conditions. Due to selective perception and confirmation bias, the buyer of a device can perceive an improvement where none actually exists. Also, observer-expectancy effect can result in a user subconsciously altering driving habits. These biases can be either positive or negative to the device tested, depending on the biases of the individual. For these reasons, regulatory bodies have developed standardized drive cycles for consistent, accurate testing of vehicle fuel consumption. Where fuel economy does improve after the fitment of a device, it is usually due to the tune-up procedure that is conducted as part of the installation. In older systems with distributor ignitions, device manufacturers would specify timing advance beyond that recommended by the manufacturer, which by itself could boost fuel economy while potentially increasing emissions of some combustion products, at the risk of possible engine damage.
Modifying the accessory drive system can increase fuel economy and performance to some extent. Underdrive pulleys modify the amount of engine power that can be drawn by accessory devices. Such alterations to the drive systems for alternators or air conditioning compressors (rather than the power steering pump, for example) can be detrimental to vehicle usability (e.g., by not keeping the battery fully charged), but will not impair safety.
Compounds sold for addition to the vehicle's fuel may include tin, magnesium and platinum. The claimed purpose of these is generally toimprove the energy density of the fuel. Additives for addition to the engine oil, sometimes marketed as "engine treatments", contain teflon, zinc, or chlorine compounds.
Magnets attached to a vehicle's fuel line have been claimed to improve fuel economy by aligning fuel molecules, but because motor fuels are non-polar, no such alignment or other magnetic effect on the fuel is possible. When tested, typical magnet devices have shown no effect on vehicle performance or economy.
Some devices claim to improve efficiency by changing the way that liquid fuel is converted to vapor. These include fuel heaters and devices to increase or decrease turbulence in the intake manifold. These do not work on standard vehicles because the principle is already applied to the design of the engine. This method is however integral to making vegetable oil conversions, and similar heavy oil engines, run at all.
Devices have been marketed which bleed a small amount of air into the fuel line before the carburetor. These may improve fuel economy because the engine runs slightly lean as a consequence. However, running leaner than the manufacturer intended can cause overheating, piston damage, loss of maximum power and poor emissions (e.g., higher NOx due to higher combustion temperatures, or, if misfiring occurs, greater hydrocarbon emissions).
Some electronic devices are marketed as fuel savers. The Fuel Doctor FD-47, for example, plugs into the vehicle's cigarette lighter and displays several LEDs. It is claimed to increase vehicle fuel economy by up to 25% through "power conditioning of the vehicle's electrical systems", but Consumer Reports detected no difference in economy or power in tests on ten separate vehicles, finding that the device did nothing but light up. Car and Driver magazine found that the device contains nothing but "a simple circuit board for the LED lights", and disassembly and circuit analysis reached the same conclusion. The maker disputed claims that the device has no effect, and proposed changes to the Consumer Reports testing procedure, which when implemented made no difference to the results.
There are also genuinely useful 'emissions-control defeat devices' that operate by allowing a vehicle's engine to operate outside government-imposed tailpipe emissions parameters. These government standards force factory engines to operate outside their most efficient range of operation. Either engine control units are reprogrammed to operate more efficiently, or sensors that influence the ECU's operation are modified or 'simulated' to cause it to operate in a more efficient manner. Oxygen sensor simulators allow fuel-economy reducing catalytic converters to be removed. Such devices are often sold for "off-road use only".
The popular U.S. television show MythBusters investigated several fuel-saving devices using gasoline- and diesel-powered fuel-injected cars under controlled circumstances. Fuel line magnets, which supposedly align the fuel molecules so they burn better, were tested and found to make no difference in fuel consumption. The debunked notion that adding acetone to gasoline improves efficiency by making the gasoline burn more completely without damaging the plastic parts of the fuel system was tested, and although there was no apparent damage to the fuel system, the vehicle's fuel economy was actually worsened.
The show also tested a carburetor that, according to its manufacturer, could improve fuel efficiency to 300 miles per US gallon (0.78 L/100 km). However, the device actually made the car less fuel efficient. They also determined that a diesel-powered car can run on used cooking oil though they did not check whether it damaged the engine.
The show noted that out of 104 fuel efficiency devices tested by the EPA, only seven showed any improvement in efficiency, and even then, the improvement was never more than six percent. The show also noted that if any of the devices they tested actually worked to the extent they were supposed to, the episode would have been one of the most legendary hours of television.
The purpose of this page is to assist people importing vehicles into New Zealand to satisfy requirements for fuel consumption information and compliance with the Clean Car Standard. This page is part of the entry certification processes that are detailed in the Guide to Importing a Vehicle.
Since 2005 Waka Kotahi has collected fuel consumption information for vehicles entering the fleet. This includes new vehicles manufactured after January 2005 and imported after February 2005 as well as previously registered (used) vehicles from Japan that were manufactured after January 2000 and imported after February 2005. From 1 February 2009, requirements for fuel consumption information for used imports were extended to vehicles from all countries.

In the everyday lives of humans, fuels are being consumed for different purposes like combustion, machine operation, cooling purposes, transportation purposes and so on. In the world today, scarcity of fuel is usually common but with recent technology development, the Ecoplus fuel saver has made positive impacts towards saving the loss of fuel daily. The problem of fuel scarcity has been put into control due to the modern invention of this Eco fuel saver and this has help in the reduction of cost which is spent on the consumption of fuel daily.
The use of fuel is very important, and it can be used for many reasons. Fuels can be used around the globe to power up vehicles like cars, tricycles, motorcycles, speedboats, trucks, lorries, scooters, forklift and so on. Over the years, the cost for fuel has been on the rise and this in turn has affected the standard of living of many individuals. The Ecoplus fuel saver was invented to curb this fuel cost so as to ensure fuel is saved and, in the process, money is saved too.
Every device or product has its various features which most times are usually beneficial. The Ecoplus fuel saver has numerous features and this in turn says why it is a must use for every vehicle owner. The features of this chip are:
Ecoplus fuel saver is an improvement in the world of technology today. Once it is plugged to the OBD2 port of a vehicle, it helps in remapping the ECU of that particular vehicle thereby optimizing the rate at which fuel is consumed in relation to the driving pattern. It is a device which is programmed to save fuel up to about 15% when driving and this in turn has helped in the reduction in cost on fuel. 041b061a72
