OMNITEK RECEIVES EPA APPROVAL FOR
CATERPILLAR C15 ENGINE
VISTA, CA — April 23, 2015 — Omnitek Engineering Corp. (OTCQB: OMTK) today announced it has received a Certificate of Conformity from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
applicable for diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions of the popular Caterpillar C15 engine
family for model years 1993 to 2006. The Certificate of Conformity allows engine conversions
to proceed in 49 States and includes the Caterpillar 3406E, C15, C15 ACERT and C16 engine models.
“The CAT C15 engine family remains extremely popular for Class 8 truck applications, and we have received strong interest
from customers. The pent up demand for a natural gas C15 engine bodes well for the company, as we expect strong sales
momentum in the quarters ahead as fleet customers take advantage of the favorable economics of natural gas and our
“drop-in” engine program. Diesel-to-natural gas engines conversions are a viable and cost-effective option for
Gliders and fleets, and our industry-leading product portfolio and technology offer fleet operators compelling
reasons to convert to natural gas,” said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering
