Renewable Energy: Any energy resource that is naturally regenerated over a short time scale and derived directly from the sun (such as thermal, photochemical, and photoelectric), indirectly from the sun (such as wind, hydropower, and photosynthetic energy stored in biomass), or from other natural movements and mechanisms of the environment (such as geothermal and tidal energy). Renewable energy does not include energy resources derived from fossil fuels, waste products from fossil sources, or waste products from inorganic sources.

"We should make use of the forces of nature and should obtain all our power in this way.  Sunshine is a form of energy, wind and sea currents are manifestations of this energy.  Do we make use of them?  Oh no!  We burn forests and coal, like tenants burning down our front door for heating.  We live like wild settlers."

Thomas A. Edison, 1916      

Oxitron Increases MPG and Lowers Emissions PDF Print E-mail
Biofuel

We all have been bombarded with scores of late-night TV ads for gadgets that increase MPG in our vehicles for decades...  "Just add this little piece of plastic into your air in-take and you will get 20% better MPG".  "Pour this elixir into your tank and poof - no more smoke out your tail pipe".

The reality is that it now costs over $1B USD to take an engine from concept into production.  The world market is unforgiving and ruthlessly competitive.  Engine design specialists now must study computer science for years before they can wield the advanced tools of an engine designer ... Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), CAD to CNC milling machines and even then, they must also become intimate with the vast number of variables of Material Science - Metallurgy, an in-depth knowledge of the chemistry of the fuels and the Laws of Thermodynamics.  Yet, the best and most honest engine designers, will tell you that CFD results can be off by orders of magnitude from real-world testing, that CNC milling machines can't always do what is desired, that material science is plagued with QA and virgin vs. recycled metals issues and the look-up tables for the environmental thermodynamics as they relate to engine design are changing as the result of Climate Change.

Our 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 dually was getting about 17mpg on the highway prior to the Oxitron install and 22mpg after or about a 30% mpg improvement.

Our 2014 Chevy Cruze diesel was getting about 46mpg highway prior to the Oxitron install and we are now seeing over 60mpg after or about a 44% mpg improvement.  We also are seeing a 43% reduction in emissions - esp. the NOx.
