A 2-year test on five 1.3 megawatt generators reduced fuel costs by 9.6%, while reducing NOx by 11.7%, SO2 by 79.4%, and increasing Oxygen by 1.4%. Power plant efficiency increased more than 10%.
Warren Caterpillar tested DX1 (formerly D-1280X) (under the brand name Gamma 88) using a dynamometer with the following results: Fuel efficiency was increased by 11.4%, horsepower increased by 6.35%, and torque increased by 6.5%.
A dynamometer tested the effect of Omstar DX1 (formerly D-1280X) on a 238 horsepower 2-stroke Detroit Diesel engine, resulting in a 66.88% reduction in CO, a 14.75% reduction in CO2, a 16.89% decrease in fuel consumption, over 50% reduction in opacity (smoke), and a 20.20% increase in brake thermal efficiency.
A 900 HP Caterpillar generator was tested for 57 hours in a carefully controlled test that reduced fuel consumption by an average of 8.5%.

Grupo Pujol is a small power generation company that supplies power for ICE, the Costa Rican Power Company. They tested two 12-cylinder Caterpillar generators that collectively produced 8.9 MW/hr. When the test was complete, the generators were producing over 10 MW/hr, a 12% increase.
