Frisco, TX, April 20, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- LSG Brisk, LLC today announced that its revolutionary spark plug, the LSG Halo, is now available to consumers on its new Web site, www.lsgbrisk.com. The innovative spark plug uses a patented 360° Firing Technology to improve fuel efficiency by up to 10% and reduce harmful emissions by up to 20%. The Halo is currently being used by various organizations, including cities, police departments, and schools to increase the efficiency of their fleets and the company is making the technology available to the public in an effort to help consumers find relief from skyrocketing gas prices.
Gas prices have risen about 30% since February to a national average of $2.87 for a gallon of regular unleaded and will likely continue to climb towards the $3 level throughout the U.S. as demand continues to rise with the approach of summer.
“With soaring gas prices, we are pleased to make this technology available to consumers, giving them an opportunity to realize the same fuel savings that our fleet clients are currently enjoying. In addition, they will also be helping to protect the environment, and their health, by lowering vehicle emissions that contribute to acid rain, smog, and global warming,” said Ram Mistry, Executive VP of Global Sales.
Unlike conventional spark plugs, which generate a spark at basically the same location each time, the Halo features an exclusive 360° Firing Technology that generates rotating sparks that fire at multiple points along a circular ground electrode. Thanks to this unique design and cutting-edge firing technology, the Halo is able to ignite the air/fuel mixture approximately 30% faster than traditional spark plugs, resulting in a more efficient combustion (around 95% versus 75% for standard plugs) and maximum utilization of the energy contained in the fuel. This increased efficiency will help drivers increase their gas mileage, maximize engine performance, and lower harmful emissions such as Hydrocarbons, Carbon Monoxide, and Oxides of Nitrogen (Nox), which contribute to global warming and other environmental hazards.
Other benefits of the Halo include up to 5% increase in horsepower and torque, better cold starts, cleaner engines, and smoother acceleration. Many customers have indicated that they noticed an improvement in performance immediately after installing the plugs, however, the company indicated that vehicles should be driven between 500 to 1000 miles before realizing the full fuel-saving potential of the Halo Spark Plugs.
One of the first organizations to experience the benefits of the LSG Halo spark plug was the City of Little Rock, Arkansas. Darryl Syler, the city’s Fleet Maintenance Manager, decided to conduct a trial on the city’s Police Fleet to see how the Halo would perform. He had the spark plugs installed on 12 Ford Crown Victoria Police Cruisers and field-tested for about four months. To ensure the accuracy of the results, a blind test was performed. When the results were in, the City of Little Rock concluded that the Halo spark plugs improved their fuel economy by an average of 11.5%.
Mr. Syler later remarked, “I would like to tell you…how pleased we are with the results that we have had with the Halo plugs that we have been running in our Ford Crown Victoria Police Cars. They have really produced great numbers on the fuel mileage. I look forward to continued success with the Halo plugs and I would recommend them to anyone that inquires. We have seen an 11.5% increase in fuel mileage, and as fuel prices go up, this is going to be a tremendous help in cutting our fuel costs.”
Based on the positive results they achieved on the trial, the City of Little Rock has decided to retrofit their entire fleet with the LSG Halo spark plugs. Thanks to the efforts of Mr. Syler and his team in the Fleet Maintenance Department, the City of Little Rock will save approximately $225,000 annually on their fuel costs while helping to clean and preserve the environment.
The Halo Spark Plug has been extensively tested by various fleets in both the U.S. and Canada, using a wide variety of vehicles, with very successful results. Some of the organizations benefiting from its use include the City of Little Rock, AR (11.5% improvement in mpg), the City of Hot Springs, AR (10.8% improvement in mpg), McKinney Independent School District, TX (22% improvement in mpg), and Summit Pest Control, TX (16.7% improvement in mpg).
