WatchIt Technologies Inc., an incubator firm for green technology, made some buzz on April 6th when the firm announced production of its patent pending prototype known as “fuel reformer.” When mounted in a vehicle fuel line between the gas tank and where the fuel enters the engine, the fuel reformer will process fuel to do a complete burn. According to WatchIt Technologies, this higher efficiency fuel burn should translate into added miles per gallon on a tank of gas, a reduction in exhaust emissions, and less wear and tear on a vehicle engine.
Fuel Reformer could hit markets soon
The prototypes will be used for high level testing and analysis at an automotive lab located in Detroit, Michigan. Based on the independent review, if the fuel reformer prototypes pass the automotive lab tests and the results can be replicated and repeated on a number of units this should catapult the fuel savings to the world markets without any concerns over finance and production. Additionally, a chemical analysis of the fuel will be performed to document changes in the structure of the fuel. The timing of this could not be better as the Obama administration works toward reducing the United States dependence on foreign oil by 33% over the next decade.
“WatchIt Technologies has secured a commitment of independent funding that will allow us to produce the needed prototypes as well as proceed with extensive specialized laboratory testing. Very specific success criteria is being negotiated that will be tied to the funding and additional testing and evaluation,” said Max Bennett, President and CEO of WatchIt Technologies Inc. “In very simple terms, if the company can replicate its previous test results, we will be in a position to catapult the fuel savings device to the world markets without any concerns over finance and production. This is possibly the single biggest step in the history of the company and the fuel reformer.”
