Green Star Releases Further Fuel Savings Test Data

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - April 26, 2010) - Today Green Star Products, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GSPI) announced that it has completed an efficiency road test on a diesel long haul truck.

Test data included 249,564 baseline miles and 13,863 additive test miles on a Euro 4, 2009, 500 HP Volvo VNL780 Truck. Fuel efficiency increase was 10.03% from 6.18 mpg to 6.8 mpg. The test also included TVT Engine Oil Energizer oil additive at 5% and TVT Diesel Fuel Additive (DFE) at a ratio of 1,500 to 1 for a total cost of $60.38 for both additives (for the test period of 13,863 miles).

Fuel savings were estimated to reduce fuel costs by $613.50 over the 13,863 miles which resulted in a Return on Investment (ROI) of 1,016% ($613.50 divided by $60.38).

Joseph LaStella, President of Green Star Products, stated, "This type of 'on-road' testing, taken over thousands of miles, removes short term 'anomalies' such as weather conditions and road conditions that may be a significant source of errors in short term testing." 

This test further confirms previous testing on fuel savings and its associated decrease of the CO2 footprint to help reduce Climate Change. See press release titled "Green Star Decreases the Fuel Consumption on a Greek Maritime Cruise Vessel by Diesel Fuel Energizer (DFE) of Advanced Technology" dated January 29, 2010, http://www.greenstarusa.com/news/10-01-29.html 

Mr. LaStella further stated, "Further testing is continuing on this vehicle and many other engines including power generation, maritime and utility vehicles."

Testing has also confirmed substantial reduction in engine wear verified by trace metal analysis including iron, copper, lead, tin, and 20 other elements.

Since engine design differs greatly from engine to engine, we would expect variable results from each group test. However, most engines tested have shown good ROIs with CO2 reductions and extended engine life as additional benefits.
