Continuing Fuel Economy Improvement Documented in Latest 25,000 Mile Mark Over-the-Road Testing

Opacity Emissions Now Reduced to Virtually Zero

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - August 6, 2009) - Ethos Environmental, Inc. (OTCBB: ETEV), a San Diego based company, today announced the Company's research division, Ethos Scientific LLC, has received confirmation of continued improvements in fuel economy from the latest Over-The-Road (OTR) interim test results reported at the 25,000 mile mark from the start of the test on the test vehicle. The test results were obtained from the combined use of EthosFR+, a liquid fuel catalyst, in the test vehicle's fuel and EthosFR Oil Treatment in the vehicle's engine oil.

The original test results were reported on June 29th, 2009 at the 10,000 mile mark on the test vehicle.

The ongoing OTR testing is being performed by the California Environmental Engineering (CEE) Laboratory, Center for Environmental Research in Santa Ana, California. A protocol similar to that prescribed for the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), J1321, is being used. CEE is Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized and California Air Resources Board (CARB) certified. The testing is being performed in cooperation with the research group of Rod's Trucking, located in Santa Fe Springs, CA.

This latest test data now reveals a substantial fuel economy improvement of up to 15% with opacity emissions now being reduced to virtually zero. The previous interim results as reported in the Company's June 29th, 2009 press release showed up to an 11.3% improvement in fuel economy. The test vehicle is the same vehicle referenced in the June 29th, 2009 press release.

Ongoing fuel economy and opacity emissions testing on this vehicle will include Particulate Matter Density results in the next phase of testing.

"We're delighted to be able to substantively document and report that continued use of EthosFR+ and EthosFR results in increased improvements in fuel economy and further reductions in tailpipe emissions," said Corey P. Schlossmann, Ethos Environmental, Inc.'s CEO. "These newest test results confirm the steady stream of user/anecdotal results the Company continues to receive from its growing customer base."
