Sonical fuel charger boasts 16% increase in fuel economy

Go Green Global Technologies Corp. has announced positive test results indicating the effectiveness of the Sonical Fuel Charger on three diesel-powered vehicles.�The test vehicles included two Citroen Jumper Targatos and one Citroen Berlingo Targato.�The average fuel savings for the three vehicles after a sixty-day driving cycle was 16 percent, stated the company.

Through its exclusive relationship with Sonical Srl, an Italian manufacturing company based in Tuscania, Italy, Go Green has been developing the Sonical Fuel Charger product line for North American market applications for the past several years.�To date, most testing has been conducted by the manufacturer in its local markets, but the company is soon to expand into larger-scale testing and controlled product sales in the U.S.

The Sonical Fuel Charger is a permanent fuel treatment system for combustion engines that operates on the principle of "molecular cracking."�The pre-combustion device fits onto the existing fuel line and generates a variable frequency electrical field which acts upon the hydrocarbon molecules of the fuel.�The company believes (and is seeking to demonstrate) that long-chain hydrocarbon molecules present in combustion fuels are broken into more volatile micro-molecules by the Sonical technology, which enables more complete combustion of the fuel.�According to the company, the tests conducted indicate that the Sonical Fuel Charger can increase fuel economy, improve horsepower, reduce emissions, reduce engine maintenance, extend engine longevity and possibly reduce the need for higher octane fuels.
