— This is a study on a device that improves fuel efficiency by reducing harmful gases, including carbon dioxide, that are emitted from vehicles. The device applies the pulse width modulation wave (PWM) with a high-frequency bandwidth to the battery so that crystallized sulfate (SO4) will not adhere to the internal pole plates of the battery through chemical reactions. Thus, the vehicle can maintain its most optimal state. This study aims to provide the supporting equipment and methods that can help not only; efficiency by minimizing various harmful gases (such as NMHC, NOX, and CO), because the vehicle can run at its most optimal state while maintaining the cleanliness of the pole plates. The experiment results using the device confirmed the effectiveness of the device in terms of fuel efficiency, enhanced performance, and effects such as environmental pollution prevention by reducing harmful gas production.
