New device set to provide fuel savings of up to 70%

Thursday, 07 December, 2006

A device that can be retrofitted to any internal combustion engine to save fuel and reduce carbon emissions is to be internationally lauched in Queenstown, New Zealand this month.

The Hydro Fuel System Hydro-charger hybrid device has been developed by American companies Global Energy and H to-go and is heralded as providing an alternative, inexpensive and safe way of powering the internal combustion engine. Vision Energy New Zealand owns the New Zealand distribution rights for the device.

The device provides an on-demand supply of hydrogen that can transform a standard car, truck, digger or any combustion engine into a powerful, super efficient, ultra-low-emission, "˜Hydro-charged' machine.

A preview event is to be held at the Queenstown Events Centre on 11 December. The preview is open to the public and will feature presentations by the manufacturer of the product, renewable energy advocates, product users and government officials. The Hydro-charger will be demonstrated in a variety of applications including cars, buses, farm equipment and others.

The launch will also mark the start of the Hydrogen Challenge: New Zealand where a variety of retrofitted vehicles will have fuel use and emissions carefully monitored and measured against pre-established benchmarks. The Hydrogen Challenge: New Zealand has been designed to prove the efficiency of the unit to high fuel-use businesses such as taxi drivers, transport firms and tourism operators.

H to-go CEO Richard Presley says the Hydro-charger is capable of delivering on-demand hydrogen power for all internal combustion engines.

"The applications for on-demand energy generated from hydrogen are almost limitless. The Hydro-charger eliminates many of the previous challenges surrounding the establishment of a hydrogen economy. The on-demand extraction of hydrogen from water eliminates issues such as the safe carriage of compressed cylinders of explosive gas, the need for safe storage and transportation, and associated distribution logistics. It is also far more economical than hydrogen extracted from fossil fuels."

"The Hydro Fuel System will save New Zealand and New Zealanders carbon credits and money. While not yet on sale here, it will soon offer fuel savings of up to 70% and emission reductions of 70"“80% at a very affordable price."

H to-go and Global Energy Options were invited by Renewable Energy New Zealand (RENZ) to launch the Hydro-charger in Queenstown, New Zealand.
