About The Start Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Device (FEED)
The Start Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Device (FEED) is a patent-pending, fuel-conditioning technology that reduces fuel consumption and polluting emissions, while increasing engine horsepower. The Start FEED technology discharges a high-voltage electric current at a specified frequency and wavelength into fuel at ambient temperatures prior to its entry into the engine. Using a patent-pending technology, this high-voltage electric current breaks long-chain hydrocarbon molecules into shorter, lighter more volatile molecules.
This process is known as "cracking" in the petroleum refinery industry, where it is used to convert feedstock oil into gasoline, diesel and other products, including butanes, propane, propylene, ethane and methane. When conventional gas and diesel fuels are reconditioned by the Start FEED unit, they become more flammable and burn more completely in the combustion chamber. The technology can be applied to a variety of different types of engines, both diesel and gasoline powered, heavy equipment as well as consumer vehicles.
