XcelPlus Exceeds Revenue Goal for 2nd Quarter of 2006

SALUDA, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2006 -- XcelPlus International Inc. (PINKSHEETS: XLPI), a manufacturing and marketing company specializing in alternative fuel technologies, today announced 2nd quarter revenues for FY 2006.

Revenues for the 2nd quarter, which closed on June 30th, 2006, increased to $300K, a significant increase over revenues for the previous quarter. According to Mr. Kevin Whited, Sales Director for XcelPlus, the increase is due primarily to marketing efforts focused on the Flextek conversion kit. The Flextek is a kit that converts gasoline fueled vehicles into flex-fuel vehicles capable of running on E85 ethanol, gasoline, or any blend of the 2 fuels.

"We see these revenues as a very positive sign and we fully expect the positive results seen in our 2nd quarter to continue throughout our 3rd and 4th quarters," said Mr. Bill R. Smith, President of XcelPlus. "During our shareholder conference call we announced a 2nd quarter revenue goal of $250K. Exceeding that goal gives us confidence that we will meet or exceed our 3rd quarter goal of $1 million in revenue. Our print and radio advertising campaign has only just begun and we will be airing television broadcast commercials in the near future.

"We are also increasing our lobbying efforts, as public and political acceptance of E85 helps expand our markets. Just yesterday Governor George Pataki of New York signed legislation designed to make it easier for New York service station owners to offer E85 ethanol to their customers, and we fully expect other states to follow suit and make E85 readily available to consumers."

Governor Pataki signed Senate bill 8124/Assembly bill 11,868 into law at a service station owned by a dealer who expects to have an E85 pump installed before Thanksgiving. The signing of the New York bill comes just one week after Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's endorsement of the Flextek conversion system and E85 ethanol.
