COLUMBUS, Ind., March 16 -- Reg Technologies, Inc. (Vancouver: RRE; OTC Bulletin Board: REGRF) and its U.S. subsidiary company REGI U.S., Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: RGUS) wish to announce the following test results as reported by their engineer Patrick Badgley. The following test results confirm that the AVFS may be the answer to one of the world's most serious pollution problems. Air Vapor Flow System The current round of AVFS testing on the 10 horsepower Tecumseh engine has been completed by Adiabatics, Inc. The following is a summary of the latest test data where the power output is the same for the AVFS and the standard carburetor fuel system: Fuel Head Exh. CO2 HC NOX O2 Load Flow BSFC Temp. Temp. (%) PPM (ppm) (%) (in-lbs) (lbs/ (lbs/hp/ (deg F) hr) hr) Stock 258 1074 10.62 131 34.2 0.55 177 5.00 0.636 AVFS 269 1096 9.14 66 27.6 0.72 177 4.92 0.625 % Change 4.3 2 -14 -49.6 -19.3 30.9 --- -1.6 -1.6 -- Hydrocarbons were cut in half with the AVFS -- Oxides of Nitrogen were reduced by about 20 percent -- Fuel Consumption was improved Automotive manufacturers may also consider the AVFS technology because of the following: -- May be an answer to one of the world's most serious pollution problems -- Is simple and inexpensive to manufacture, replace and maintain -- Is easily retrofitted on today's internal combustion engines -- Could result in manufacturing cost savings for internal combustion engines -- Could lengthen the life of an internal combustion engine SOURCE Reg Technologies, Inc.
