Almost every scientific group and government around the world has concluded that global warming is real and a growing threat that cannot be ignored. In fact, according to a recent ABC NEWS poll, 85% of Americans believe global warming "probably is occurring."
The United Nations has called for speedy and decisive international actions to combat this phenomenon. And across our nation, concerned individuals are asking, "What can I do? What personal actions can I take?" There are many right answers such as replacing incandescent light bulbs with fluorescents or buying a hybrid car that wrings more mileage out of a tank of gasoline. Light bulbs are cheap. Hybrid cars are not.
The Worst Polluter May Not Be Your Car!
Interestingly, most environmentally conscious drivers are not aware that the worst polluter in their garage is NOT THE CAR. It's their lawn and garden equipment. Ever notice the huge cloud of blue smoke that comes out of your lawnmower's exhaust every time you start it up? Lawnmowers, leaf blowers, edgers and hedge trimmers emit millions of tons of hydrocarbons into the atmosphere that contributes to global warming. And, as the equipment operator, you are also breathing those harmful fumes.
The California Air Resources Board estimates that gas lawnmowers emit as much air pollution in one hour as driving a car for 13 hours. So, by the simple and inexpensive act of switching to our environmentally friendly spark plugs, you can lower your small engine emissions. In extensive testing, it was proven that E3 spark plugs reduce fuel consumption in small engines up to 13%. If you own a walk-behind mower, that will recover your E3 Spark Plug purchase price in about 2 seasons of mowing, and in only one season if you cut using a riding mower.
EPA Says: "E3 Offers Clear Advantages in Emissions Control"
Public attention to global warming has spiked sharply over the last decade. Some polls show over 70% of Americans are concerned about the general health of the environment and how it affects the future of our planet. Obviously, the hundreds of millions of automobiles on American roads burn fuel, discharge greenhouse gases, and contribute enormously to the problem. But, by simply changing all of your engines' spark plugs to E3, you could reduce toxic emissions while improving the fuel efficiency of the engines you use.
Don't take our word for it. After extensive testing, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that E3's "...technology offered clear advantages in HC and CO emissions control (both contribute to smog and ozone depletion) simultaneously improving power and fuel efficiency." And, unlike many other fuel-saving technologies, you don't have to modify your engine in any way.
E3 is the ONLY spark plug to be included in rulings by the EPA, cited as a "supplemental emissions control device." Our DiamondFire technology creates improved combustion efficiency, which means fuel is burned in the cylinder more completely. This results in greater power, increased mileage, and greater fuel efficiency. The more complete the combustion, the less carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons that escape into the air we breathe. E3 Spark Plugs was founded on the principles of improving Ecology, Efficiency and Energy.
How You Can Help Fight Global Warming?
The saying goes, "Think Globally, Act Locally." One of the best ways to fight global warming is to improve the burn in your gasoline-powered engines. By burning the fuel more completely you will use less fossil fuel and reduce the amount of carbon monoxide, dioxide, and other hydrocarbons that escape into the atmosphere.
You can start with your small engines, like your lawnmower or leaf blower, especially if they're a few years old. The EPA estimates that older small engines are a significant problem because they emit up to 30% of un-burned gases into the atmosphere. E3 spark plugs burn fuel more completely in the cylinder which means you use less gas, put less pollution into the air, and can save money at the pump.
Another way, one that most of us never think about, is by reducing the growing number of spark plugs that end up in landfills. Since small engine spark plugs are often changed every year (over 100,000,000 of them are sold annually). Tons of used plugs end up in landfills, where they never decompose. E3 lawn and garden plugs will perform "as new" for the life of the engine, so you may never need to replace them. Now is the time for all of us to do whatever we can to reduce toxic emissions.
E3 spark plugs are a great investment ... for your small engines, for your wallet, and for your planet.
