About Omnitek Engineering, Corp. (Pink Sheets:OMTK)

Omnitek Engineering, Corp. develops and sells new natural gas engines and offers technology solutions for the automotive industry. Omnitek is a leader in the development of advanced engine technologies and emissions control systems for internal combustion engines burning gasoline, diesel and alternative fuels such as natural gas (CNG,LNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and hydrogen. The Company's advanced engine management system and diesel-to-natural gas conversion technology, have established Omnitek as a leader in the industry.

Omnitek offers a total system approach and is dedicated to supplying alternative energy and emissions control solutions that are sustainable, affordable and contribute to combat global warming.

As the price of crude oil continues to increase and the threat of global warming and air pollution remains, the search for an alternative fuel becomes increasingly important. Natural gas has emerged as a perfect solution to these challenges. Readily available in many countries from indigenous sources, natural gas is inexpensive and clean burning.

Diesel engines have been the backbone of the transportation industry. Valued for their power, fuel economy and durability, diesel powered trucks and buses are used worldwide, however, they are heavy polluters and significantly contribute to global warming. Omnitek has developed a system to convert any existing diesel engine to a clean-burning natural gas engine at a fraction of the cost of a new engine.

Omnitek estimates the population of heavy-duty diesel vehicles and stationary engines around the world which can be converted using the Omnitek Diesel-to-Natural Gas Conversion System and offer the best ROI approaching ten million engines.

Prevailing economic factors, rising oil prices and the real threat of global warming make abundantly available and inexpensive natural gas the fuel for the future.
