“The Platinum Fuel saver device is an effective fuel saving device and purchasers will in fact be receiving what they bargained for.”- Federal Judge Walter J. Skinner

HHO Tek is focusing on real world driving conditions in the Ford Focus to demonstrate that the Platinum Fuel Saver does what Federal Judge Walter J Skinner found to be true: “The Platinum Fuel saver device is an effective fuel saving device and purchasers will in fact be receiving what they bargained for.” -- Walter J. Skinner
This Ford Focus was purchased new in 2004 and from day one, with new, properly inflated tires, and in perfect tune has never gotten over 19 mpg in city, in fact the average is 17.8 with the best being 19 mpg city and 27 mpg hwy. The EPA tests show that the Focus should get 31 MPG on the highway and 24-27 in the city. Why are the EPA results and the real world results so different? Below is a description of how they administer the test straight off the EPA website.
EPA testing procedure through 2007
Two separate fuel economy tests on a vehicle in perfect tuned condition and using a low electrical load are administered to simulate city driving and highway driving: the city driving program consists of starting with a cold engine and making 23 stops over a period of 31 minutes for an average speed of 20 mph (32 km/h) and with a top speed of 56 mph (90 km/h); the highway program uses a warmed-up engine and makes no stops, averaging 48 mph (77 km/h) with a top speed of 60 mph (97 km/h) over a 10 mile (16 km) distance.
After 5 years and some 66000 miles on the Focus, The Platinum Fuel Saver was installed, a couple of weeks later the fuel mileage had increased to 23.6 in town and 28.4 on the highway this is far from scientific, but real world in practicality which showed that the Platinum Fuel Saver did in fact work, it was using less fuel for the miles it was driven.
Trevor Hunter, Ceo of HHO Tek and Don Conner, Industrial Sales Director did a regional tour assisting existing dealers and setting up new dealers in the Southeast and Midwest, ending up in Levelland, TX.
Trevor needed to be back in Rutherfordton North Carolina and decided to load up the Focus with the tour gear and Don Conner, (nearly 800 lbs of passengers and gear) to do a real world driving test from Levelland to Rutherfordton, NC, a distance of about 1300 miles.
During the test they were not doing the EPA average speed of 48 mph, instead they were steady at 70-80 mph, over a 17.7 hour time period they actually averaged 57.3 mph (the fuel receipts on the website do verify this) that is including the 4 fuel stops, bathroom breaks, and a stop a casino for about 30 minutes in Louisiana. The AC was running nearly the whole time as well as a 750 watt power invertor to power the laptops. So there was an above average electrical load as well.
The fuel receipts from the trip have been scanned and uploaded to the website; there were also photos taken of the instrument cluster to show the mileage corresponding with the fuel receipts. HHO Tek encounters a lot of skepticism with this product so they wanted to make the results as transparent as possible, anyone can go to the website and look at the data they have provided and cross calculate any way you choose and end up with the same results which are, that the HHO Tek Ford Focus is getting an average of 31.9 MPG with the Platinum Fuel Saver, which is better than the EPA tests say this car should get and the Ford Focus test was conducted in beyond real world conditions. The bottom line is once again they have validated the Platinum Fuel Saver does what HHO Tek says it does and has been doing for more than 33 years now.
