SANTA ANA, California – SaviCorp® (PINKSHEETS: SVMI) is proud to announce that initial, voluntary EPA approved testing of its flagship DynoValve® product is currently undertaking ongoing emissions and fuel economy testing on a variety of makes and models indicating measurable results of each study, proving the significance of the company’s technologies as they relate to emission reduction and improved fuel economy.
In the preliminary analysis of DynoValve’s effectiveness in reducing blow-by engine gasses and the carbon emissions that result from them, EPA test protocols on light duty automobiles have proven that SaviCorp’s product lowers hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide in some cases by over 50 percent, compared to those vehicle emissions that remain unmitigated.
Vehicle-specific testing on Kia, Hyundai and Toyota vehicles further provides proof of DynoValve’s success. Testing concluded that, of four separate vehicle types—the Toyota Highlander, Kia Rio, Hyundai Sonata and the Hyundai Elantra—each found a sizable boost in fuel economy, resulting in 31.3 percent, 28.2 percent, 28.3 percent and 18.4 percent, respectively.
“The results we’re seeing from these initial phases of EPA approved lab testing are phenomenal. We’re extremely pleased with the results we’re getting and have high hopes as we continue to undertake testing for more vehicle brands in the near future,” said Serge Monros, Chairman and CEO of SaviCorp. “This testing will absolutely serve as a stepping stone as we voluntarily continue to pursue the EPA 511 certification and validation.”
All of the testing and results pertaining to SaviCorp’s most recent round of laboratory testing can be attributed to an EPA certified test facility. The company will continue to move forward with ongoing testing for other vehicle manufacturers—encompassing four, six, eight, and ten cylinder engines—on a continuous basis, in an attempt to gauge a full gamut of data for its DynoValve products to achieve global recognition.
The testing reports provided by SaviCorp exhibit fuel economy data from relatively new automobiles when being driven over a California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved driving route. Initial fuel economy data is measured over the CARB route as baseline data with the vehicle in OEM condition. The same route, vehicle and driver repeated the drive cycle with SaviCorp’s DynoValve installed, to measure the fuel economy and compare the measured improvement in fuel economy attributed to the device.
The EPA evaluation of fuel economy over a specified road route used to be identified as the 511 Program. This refers to the EPA’s testing program as a consensual test to measure fuel economy of automobiles under section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. That authority and test protocol was re-codified and testing is now done by road testing as described above, in addition to the use of indoor laboratory chassis dynamometers.
