Government fleets set to trial fuel-saving devices
01/07/1998 in NEWS
Government departments have been directed to make sure they take environmental issues into account with their fleets, making them investigate several avenues, including fuel-saving devices. Chester-based Power Makers Plus is one of those in the running for the trial after it approached the Government about taking on its fuel catalyst. It will be competing against devices from Fuel Technology International, based in Cheshire and the Broquet device, marketed by a firm in West Sussex.
The full weight of the Government's testing facilities will be behind the trials, allowing for an independent view on the effects of the devices. Discussions are taking place as to which of the firms will take part in the tests, which will be carried out on about 40 vehicles.
