In conclusion the members of FFI, in conjunction with SEA Oil Company and the Philippine Government have signed a contract to start immediately converting vehicles in the Philippines. FFI will continue to work with the major automobile dealers to prove compatibility and collect data on long term affects of the use of higher contents of ethanol in the ASIAN market.

This also meets the Governments long range goals to go green and reduce the dependency on imported oil which has a huge impact on their GNP.

May 12th through 18th, 2008 - -Fuel Flex International, LLC's CEO Alex Conger and CFO Gary Ackaret Visit The Thailand. Domestic operations was handled by company President Curtis Lacy.

Alex and Gary had the privilege to meet with many officials as they brought to close a business arrangement that will ultimately help the country meet their goals to convert to ethanol and reduce oil imports as much as 80%.

Alex and Gary met with the officials of the two largest oil companies, Deputy Prime Minister Suvit, and leaders in the Bio Fuel industry. They explained a plan that would help the country get started on the road to independence from foreign oil.

They also made a trip to KMIT one of the leading engineering colleges in Thailand where the FFI Platinum products were installed on Honda and Toyota products. Their products were tested on E10, E20 and E85. Test results were outstandingly positive. Additional tests are also underway for material compatibility of vehicle fueling systems and to check gains in performance and mileage.

Enjoy the following photo gallery of their visit.

Soon after our visit, Thailand adopted a policy to make E85 accepted and traded openly on their market. FFI is helping Thailand convert thousands of vehicles to use a combination of gas and ethanol that would normally not have that option. This will allow E85 to be part of their standard fuel infrastructure very quickly and ultimately make a big change in environmental conditions.

FFI was very honored to be part of this ongoing project. We will increase our support and training efforts in Thailand in 2008 and 2009 to help make the transition as seamless as possible. Thanks again to their hosts from Petrogreen
