Power Systems' objective is to provide a product to the market that would
constructively affect the environment and simultaneously have a positive
economic impact for the end user. The inventors of the first generation
Fitch product were focused on gasoline stabilization. By the time the
Fitch product was introduced to the commercial market, it had much more
to offer than just gasoline stabilization. Advanced Power Systems Int'l.
Inc. entered into a research agreement with the Department of Defense to
extend the capabilities of the product to fuels used by the military
including diesel and JP fuels. The Fitch product line we now market is
the result of this and other research efforts. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst
improves fuel quality as measured by to the ASTM tests specified by the
Department of Defense.
As you know, all fuel can deteriorate due to the influences of
microorganisms, oxygen and ozone. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst insures that
all fuel (gas, diesel, bio-diesel, low sulfur diesel, kerosene, oil,
etc.) delivered to a combustion engine is in its optimal condition
allowing a burner or engine the maximum amount of energy with minimal
emissions per kg of fuel.
Advanced Power Systems was founded by John C. Fitch to
commercialize his inventions and those of other innovators in the field
of energy efficiency and transportation safety. John C. Fitch is a man of
many firsts. He was the first SCCA champion (1951) and won the 12 hours
of Sebring in 1953. As Corvette race team manager he transformed the car
into a full-fledged racing machine in the mid 50's. His life is
chronicled in the biography "Racing Through Life" by Carl
Goodwin. He is the designer of the famous Lime Rock Park Speedway where
Advanced Power Systems is located.
He is perhaps best known for his development of the Fitch highway
barrier system, the yellow sand filled plastic barrels which are used on
every interstate highway across the U.S. and which have saved thousands
of lives by dissipating the energy of impact of a car encountering a
large mass. In September of 2000 John Fitch was inducted into the
Corvette Museum Hall of Fame for his contribution to making the Corvette
a contender at Daytona, Sebring and LeMans.
