    Adventuri, LLC*

    U.S. Domestic Fuel ConsumptionU.S. domestic fuel consumption is ~200 billion gallons per yearOver 90% of the freight tonnage in the U.S. is managed by diesel fuel powerplants and isnt going away soonThe annual fuel consumption for a diesel semi-truck is ~$30,000 per year compared to ~$1,500 for the gasoline vehicle suggesting much higher margins per product sold for diesel products vs. gasoline.The number of fuel-savings product designs that need to be produced to service the diesel freight market is relatively small and doesnt require some level of constant redesign per year to address new makes/models of vehiclesAt a conservative 10% relative improvement in fuel economy and $2.5/gallon, the diesel fuel savings market corresponds to ~$7.5 billion annual total market of which at least 50% is readily addressable.Markets in China, Europe, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Korea, Brazil readily addressable thru licensingAdventuri, LLC is pursuing this diesel market opportunity with its Exhaust Venturi Product

    Adventuri, LLC*

    The Venturi Exhaust ProductWe have developed an aftermarket exhaust system that improves automotive fuel economy by >15% (1 U.S. Patent/1 U.S. Patent Pending/8 Patents Pending Overseas)Previously CARB certified in California (executive order received)Has been demonstrated in road trials on multiple vehiclesEasily installed on new or used vehicles or any internal combustion engineLow Cost pays for itself in 80mph, Venturi mass flow rate is ~ constantMixer: Forces hot exhaust pipe flow into annular flow to promote uniform mixing with the cold venturi gases in the hydraulic jumpWell-mixed 2 stream gas momentum to recover to local atmospheric pressure preserving high suction Venturi effect upstream at exhaust pipe outletLow Mach Hot Exhaust Gases

    Customer Channel PartnerAdventuri has developed a strategic relationship with GoTek Energy to be able to utilize their existing customer network and supply chain partnersSales estimate based on 2 major beverage manufacturer fleets and one OEM truck manufacturer at ramp-up penetrations. 2nd YR. HD truck sales estimated at 3,800 units in the U.S.GoTek Energy receives sales commission incentiveCustomer Validation~2 week lead time from product ready to pre-contract customer validation 6-8 weeks of accelerated road testing by fleet /OEM customer validationContract SalesAt a wholesale price of $2,390 /unit, annual 2nd year revenue is $9.1M With 1 MPG improvement at a $3,990 installed end-customer sales price; customer ROI is 10 months. (see note)

    NOTE: Average HD Truck mileage is 118.8K mi/yr, @7MPG @ $2.40/gal. @ 8MPG @ $2.40/gal, fuel cost savings are $5,090 /yr.

    Product Development Strategy - Stage 1Prior to designing actual venturi exhaust suction, need to measure suction levels on actual vehicle powerplant/system:Establish Venturi Design RequirementsBest engine fuel economy under 70%-80% operating conditions (low hanging fruit in venturi design). Can worry about more sophisticated optimization for last 20%-30% downstream improvements if return-on-investment justifies additional upgradesEvaluate emissions improvementsEnsure no accelerated engine wear

    For overland freight vehicle applications were developing a vehicle dynamometer testbed to support such suction mapping measurements

    Adventuri, LLC*

    Product Development Strategy Stage 2Actual Freight Vehicle Powerplant Testing with Simulated SuctionProduct DevelopmentOnce Powerplant Suction mapping is done, we can quickly software design the optimal venturi product for the application using advanced computational fluid (CFD) software toolsProduct VerificationOur dynamometer test facility for overland freight vehicles is being developed to also simulate vehicle speeds with blowers that generate airflow into the venturi inlets These test facilities allow Adventuri to verify product performance prior to actual product deploymentCustomer Product Validation6-8 weeks of road trial testing on representative customer fleet vehicle by customer Typically fleet operators will run 3 shifts per day of 8 hour driving operations to accelerate product validations under relevant driving conditions for their operations

    Production & SalesAdventuri will own all IP and exhaust venturi designs in the U.S. with options of licensing (particularly for foreign markets)Core elements of the exhaust venturi will be manufactured in-house or thru a tightly held, redundant network of primary contract manufacturersAccessories and the rest of the venturi kit will be produced by a larger network of secondary contract manufacturers/product distributors to help ensure competitive cost control Final kit assembly and packaging will be conducted in-house or thru or at least one of the primary contract manufacturersAdventuri will manage supply chain logistics with emphasis on on-demand production/delivery to help minimize inventorySales will be conducted through existing supply chain partners under sales commissions agreements until product is well established

    Adventuri, LLC*

    SummaryAdventuri, LLC is developing business opportunities for its disruptive Exhaust Venturi product. This product is designed for improving fuel efficiency as an aftermarket upgrade for internal combustion engine applicationsAdventuri is currently focused on diesel freight applications as its target entry market Over 90% of the countrys and worlds freight moves through diesel fuel and isnt going away anytime soon. Ongoing competition amongst fleet operators to continually strive to reduce operations costs ensures stable market regardless of fuel priceMuch higher per product profit margins compared to small consumer vehicle applications that consume
