    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- RxP Products, Inc. President
 Don Woodward announced today that Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis
 would begin using fuel treated with RxP, an emissions-reducing fuels
 technology.
     Terminal Railroad Association President W.D. Spencer said, "It is
 everyone's responsibility to improve our environment.  Beginning in May all
 locomotives fueled at our facility will be treated with RxP.  Our goal is to
 help St. Louis improve air quality."
     The Terminal Railroad Association consists of two major railroad
 companies: Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Norfolk Southern.  They use
 approximately 700,000 gallons of fuel monthly.  All thirty-four of the
 locomotives used daily by Terminal, plus all the on-line engines that pass
 through the switch yard, will be using the RxP treated fuel.
     "We made the decision to utilize fuel treated with RxP technology after
 tests indicated significant reductions in exhaust emissions, while
 simultaneously providing cost savings," Spencer said.
     According to Woodward, tests were conducted on locomotive engines over a
 two-year period.  "We worked very closely with the railroads and will continue
 to perform tests and monitor the equipment in order to advance our knowledge
 of the combustion process and to keep track of the emissions reductions."
     RxP is sold nationwide as an over-the-counter fuel additive in auto parts
 stores like AutoZone and Discount Auto Parts, as well as Wal-Mart.
     "Air pollution is a serious and growing problem in this nation and in the
 world," says Woodward.  "RxP is an economical solution, but not one
 necessarily favored by the oil companies who shun technology that reduces the
 amount of fuel used.  However, with participation from business and industry,
 we can make a significant difference in air quality."
