NAPOLEON, OH-- Douglas Pelmear President/CEO of HP2G LLC is pleased to announce:

Napoleon, OH October 29, 2008 - Today, Doug Pelmear, and his 1987 Mustang set off for a 4,000 mile trip from Toledo, OH to Las Vegas, NV, making his way to the SEMA Show's Making Green Cool Zone. The entire trip is expected to cost Pelmear $200 in a car that gets 110 miles per gallon. The flagship HP2g™ runs on E85, which is a green, alcohol-based fuel that significantly reduces green house gas emissions. Working to build a vehicle that would meet the requirements of the X PRIZE, Team HP2g started by using the V8 platform. In testing, they have been able to have both fuel efficiency and the power to pass traffic when needed. At this time, their focus is designing their vehicle to be more consumer-friendly without sacrificing basic creature comforts of comparable existing vehicles. "With HP2g, I believe that I've developed a revolutionary alternative energy invention from an that will reduce our reliance on foreign oil and keep our environment clean" said Pelmear prior to his send off in Ohio.

Through patented technology, Horse Power Sales.net Inc. president Doug Pelmear has discovered a way to allow a standard V8 engine to travel the energy equivalent of 110 mpg on E-85 (Ethanol Blend) fuel. The most striking feature of the HP2g engine is that it's designed to run in SUV's and larger family cars. "As gas prices soar, consumer preference is shifting to cars that are fuel-efficient and buyers are choosing smaller more compact cars. I wanted to throw the concept that a fuel- efficient car has to be small out the window, so I specifically designed my engine for SUVs and larger vehicles," said Pelmear. On June 14, Hp2g will be put to a real-world test at the Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan.Pelmear believes that the results will back-up his fuel-efficiency estimates and will position HP2g as a major contender for the X PRIZE. "Northwest Ohio is replete with experts in advanced manufacturing and engineering, and Horse Power Sales.net Inc. is no exception. Rocket Ventures was tasked by the state of Ohio to help advance entrepreneurs with innovative technology. Doug certainly fits that mold and we are thrilled to support the Horse Power Sales' HP2g TEAM.

It was from Douglas Pelmear, owner and chief engineer of HP2g, an Ohio grass roots company that developed a 110 MPG E85 V8 Hybrid Mustang. He told them that, "due to his inability to raise additional working capital he would have to abandon his good work."
Doug's Ford Mustang utilizes 350 times less gasoline than the Toyota Prius. He has tried desperately in the last three years to get an OEM company to take an interest in his technology with no such luck. This car gets 110 MPG. 110! All of this hard work and Doug has to close up shop.
...
That ordeal certainly ruffled some feathers and Doug was invited on NBC's Morning Show to talk about his plant having to close. After the showing, he was then invited to the Washington DC Auto Show.

But time and the economy have not been kind to Doug Pelmear's plan to revolutionize the American automobile.
The factory today is largely dark and empty, Mr. Pelmear's dreams of putting northwest Ohioans back to work are still constrained within two file drawers full of job applications, and his hopes of mass-producing his HP2g engine have fallen victim to a lack of funding.
"We can't get the banks to look at us," Mr. Pelmear said yesterday.
Mr. Pelmear said he hasn't sought money from more traditional capital sources such as investors, selling stock or bonded indebtedness, because such sources would likely cost him control of HP2g LLC - something he's unwilling to provide.
A partnership Mr. Pelmear forged with Revenge Designs Inc., a Decatur, Ind. specialty carmaker that had planned to use his engine in its upcoming "Verde" supercar, dissolved this spring.
Mr. Pelmear traveled to Washington to meet with officials in the Department of Energy on March 10, sharing his designs and testing on his prototype vehicle by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He submitted applications this month for grant funding to further his designs, and asked for loans to help him bring his engine to market.
A year ago, when he had his Wauseon factory's open house,
Mr. Pelmear had eight employees and planned to hire another 25 "within three months."
Today, he said his company has fewer employees than it did a year ago, most of them are part-time, and most of their time is spent selling and shipping his original invention, the Valley Girdle - an add-on device that makes V-configured engines more efficient.
"That's what we're living on right now, the sales of the Valley Girdle," Mr. Pelmear said.

Pelmear said they had discussions with DOE officials to educate them about his HP2g V-8 hybrid engine, which has achieved 110 miles per gallon. He explained the technologies of the engine and provided documentation of its performance ratings to DOE officials. The Hp2g engine features variable displacement and electromagnetic pulse power within the same engine. It can achieve fuel economy of 110 MGP with tests showing better results than the 2016 standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, according to Pelmear. He claims the HP2g hybrid engine operating on E-85 ethanol fuel will help preserve the environment by reducing emissions by more than 66 percent.
The company is seeking startup funds to establish manufacturing operations to produce the engine. Pelmear said the DOE is guiding them through the process for two programs for possible funding, one for grants and another for low-interest loans. "We're moving at the speed we can, working with our own funds. No banks are willing to consider financing us," Pelmear said as the reason for turning to the government for possible funding. HP2g is also working to qualify for numerous ISO certification requirements for manufacturing automotive products, Pelmear said.
...
The revenue coming from those jobs and engine sales will positively benefit the local, state and federal economy, Pelmear said. "We're holding confidential talks with major OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) in the automotive and agricultural farm equipment industries at this time," he said.

DETROIT - Napoleon inventor Doug Pelmear's HP2g engine won't be at this year's North American International Auto Show as he planned, but the owner of an Indiana boutique car maker said the fuel-efficient engine could be put in his roadster cars for sale by the end of the year.
...
The metallic green shell is built around a Ford GT platform, but doesn't have Mr. Pelmear's engine mounted inside because there wasn't time, Mr. Collorafi said.
...
Mr. Pelmear's HP2g engine uses electromagnetic pulses and actuators at the top of each cylinder to help drive the pistons and crankshaft more efficiently. He also employs a variable displacement system that can take his V8 engine down to just one cylinder when additional power isn't needed, yielding gas mileage Mr. Pelmear claims is in excess of 110 miles per gallon of E85 fuel.
A brief video explaining how the engine works is available on the company's Web site, www.hp2g.com.
Mr. Collorafi also said that his exotic sports car, which could be for sale as early as November, would come with one of three engines: a 605-horsepower supercharged Ford engine, the 638-horsepower ZR1 engine used in the Chevrolet Corvette, or Mr. Pelmear's 400-horsepower HP2g engine.
...
Mr. Pelmear said yesterday his engine company is "shopping" for companies to cast parts and do machining for his engines, which he plans to manufacture as early as this year. Last year, he opened a factory in Wauseon and is in the process of tooling it for production.
Financing remains an issue for Mr. Pelmear, he said, adding that he is pursuing angel and venture capital.

Peter Collorafi and Doug Pelmear think they have the answer; they call it the Verde.
...
To accomplish these seemingly in compatible goals, Pelmear created a "big block" V-8 engine (similar to a Ford Mustang's) that runs on ethanol. He also developed a proprietary hybrid function that uses ceramic magnets in and around the cylinders to power the car.
...
But Pelmear and Collorafi aren't worried.
...
Slated for production starting late 2010 at facilities in Ohio and Michigan, the Verde will initially be offered with a hybrid drivetrain in association with HP2G, LLC, whose CEO Douglas Pelmear has developed a 400 horsepower 4.8 liter V8 that can deliver up to 110 miles per gallon using E85 fuel.

Pelmear explains how 110 mpg motor works
...
LAS VEGAS - A year after Doug Pelmear and his Hp2g motor burst upon the automotive scene with claims of a car that could get 110 mpg, he is back.
Last year Pelmear made news when he drove his 1985 Ford Mustang to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and averaged over 100 mpg for the round trip. Now, after a year of applying for patents and continuing testing, he is back at SEMA and this time he was there to tell how his Hp2g engine works.
On Tuesday of this week, he told an audience that the car contains the marriage of an electric motor and a V-8 internal combustion engine, according to a press release based upon his presentation in Las Vegas.
...
These are common in the racing world and Pelmear has placed them on each side of the car, recharging them from existing technology such as regenerative braking. Also, unlike other cars that use both an electric and gas motors, Pelmear's design allows him to use both at the same time if necessary to achieve a massive 500 ft. lbs. of torque. The variable number of cylinders in use also mean he can go from 400 horsepower all the way down to 15 while cruising.
...
Mr. Pelmear has not publicly disclosed the technology behind his design, saying that he was awaiting submission of his patent applications before he would show or explain how his engine works. His mileage claim has not been verified by independent third-party testin
