Environmental consequences of PM include: air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, crop degradation, acid rain, acidification of waterways and smog. Health consequences of PM include: cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory disease, fibrosis, asthma, reduced pulmonary function and increased mortality.
Laboratory testing using the EPA 511 Protocol shows gas mileage increases of as much as 12%. Consumer experiences conducted on a wide variety of cars, light duty trucks and SUV’s in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America have resulted in gas mileage
increase up to 34% on 4-cylinder cars, Ford Focuses, etc.•21% on light duty trucks and SUV’s, e.g. GMC 2500s, Chevy Avalanches, Range Rovers, etc.
