For over 120 years, internal combustion engines have relied on spark plugs that create a small charge to ignite gas vapors, ultimately driving the pistons of the engine. However, the relatively weak charge of a conventional spark plug doesn't combust fuel completely, which wastes valuable gasoline and compromises performance.
Pulstar plugs utilize brand new technology: Precision Combustion Ignition (PCI), which allows today's internal combustion engines to achieve more complete combustion and better performance. This can include:
- Higher torque
- Better responsiveness
- Faster acceleration
- More towing power
- Improved fuel efficiency
Here's how it works: Electrical energy is stored in a capacitor. At the exact moment needed, that energy is released in an amazingly powerful and quick (two nanosecond) high-energy pulse.
The result: When integrated into a spark plug, for example, the improved combustion efficiency burns fuel sooner and more effectively, which equals improved mileage(MPG), less CO2 based emissions, and better overall drivability.
This new technology is based on plasma research supported by Sandia National Laboratories.
Horsepower and fuel economy are not necessarily mutually exclusive. By significantly improving the way the fuel is ignited, Pulstar Pulse technology gets more power from every drop of gasoline – using less fuel in the process.
Compared to a conventional spark plug, Pulstar technology increases cylinder pressure by pushing the piston down with more force, which generates more torque to the crankshaft and more power to the wheels.
If you don't use that increased torque to go faster, the engine does its work with less effort, resulting in better fuel economy.
Pulse plugs create 10 times more peak output than conventional spark plugs, which ultimately improves the performance of your vehicle, as well as allowing you to extract the maximum performance from all of your existing aftermarket performance products.
It has never been more urgent to find better ways to power engines. The world is consuming fuels at an alarming rage: global oil consumption is at 25 billion barrels a year, which translates to 480 billion gallons of gasoline and generates 415 billion tons of CO2 emissions. And while the U.S. contains just 5% of the world's population, it accounts for 45% of global vehicle emissions. Consumers are faced with rising costs not just at the pump, but for virtually all consumer goods. And many "alternative" technologies are either very costly, or in the distant future.
Pulse Power is a better solution. It's cost-effective, works with current engine technology, and offers fuel savings and emissions reduction and is available today!
