Tulsa, OK, February 06, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Motolingo LLC today introduced a new way of reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions in 1996 and newer vehicles.
Most gasoline combustion engines burn in an optimal state under normal driving conditions. However, certain driving behavior can cause the vehicle to operate in a high-performance state that increases fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions. A new product from Motolingo, called MotoCarma, can detect this inefficient state of operation and inform the driver to alter driving habits.
By staying in the greener operating mode, owners can save on fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprint. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds.
MotoCarma continuously monitors the vehicle’s combustion quality through a wireless network connection from the mobile phone to the vehicle’s on-board computers. If violations are detected, the software will play an audible chime on the driver’s mobile phone and record the results in an email report. The sensitivity of the monitor can be adjusted to detect overly aggressive accelerations which also waste fuel.
“It’s amazing that in today’s digital world, we haven’t been utilizing the data available from our car’s computers to improve our driving experience,” says Mitch Todd, co-founder of Motolingo. Along with green monitoring, MotoCarma can warn of engine overheating, speeding, low fuel level, and identify what caused a check engine light to illuminate.
MotoCarma comes with an On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) communication device and software for a Windows Mobile smartphone.
