Omnitek Engineering Appoints Diesel-to-Natural Gas Conversion Dealer And Installer In Texas

SAN MARCOS, Calif., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnitek Engineering Corporation (OTCBB:OMTK) today announced the appointment of Nat Gas Solutions, based in Houston, Texas, as a dealer and authorized installer of its diesel-to-natural gas conversion systems in the region. Terms were not disclosed.

"The addition of Nat Gas Solutions to our network of domestic conversion centers provides a solid platform for growth in a region with significant supplies of natural gas and pent-up demand from heavy-duty truck fleet operators," said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corporation.

Omnitek Engineering is accelerating its conversion center partnerships throughout the United States since receiving EPA approval last month for its diesel-to-natural gas conversion technology for the widely operated line of heavy-duty Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines. The domestic expansion complements the company's presence in international markets since 2001 – represented by dealers, installers and partnerships throughout Asia, Latin and South America and Europe.

The company expects to obtain EPA approval for other diesel engine models to address the anticipated increasing demand from trucking fleets that operate with other diesel engine models.

"Our fleet customers are extremely interested in diesel engine conversions and the economic benefits of utilizing natural gas. We look forward to working with Omnitek and accelerating the adoption of natural gas in the region," said Balu Balagopal, co- chief executive officer of Nat G CNG Solutions LLC.

Funk noted that Omnitek's conversion technology offers a projected return on investment of less than two years – a significant advantage compared with a projected return on investment of five-to-seven years for a new natural gas truck purchase.
