BANGKOK, Thailand, Dec. 18, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Omnitek Engineering, Corp. (Pink Sheets:OMTK) ("Omnitek" or the "Company") today announced the signing of a Business Representative Agreement to appoint CYT Gas Tech Co. Ltd. ("CGT") the exclusive Omnitek natural gas engine warranty and engine parts distribution center for Thailand, as well as a non-exclusive dealer for Omnitek's CNG engines.

Omnitek is a global leader in the alternative fuels industry. Omnitek develops and supplies new natural gas engines and a proprietary technology which converts diesel engines to operate on natural gas, propane or hydrogen.

Werner Funk, CEO of Omnitek, says, "We believe our relationship with CGT offers Omnitek the opportunity to establish broader sales penetration of natural gas engines in Thailand and offers customers a level of comfort that service and warranty tasks are performed promptly and by Omnitek authorized and trained service personnel." Mr. Funk continues, "Thailand is an important market for Omnitek. The low-interest rate loans available to the fleet operators to re-power trucks and buses, opens up a large market for Omnitek's natural gas engines. There are currently fifteen Omnitek natural gas engines operating in Thailand, with five more in transit, scheduled to arrive Thailand in December."

CGT already provides services to natural gas fleets in Thailand, and has been servicing Omnitek's natural gas engines and products in their facility in Bangkok.

Thailand is a dynamic and rapidly expanding natural gas vehicle market. Thailand's leading energy supplier, PTT Public Company Ltd ("PTT"), has been at the forefront of Thailand's natural gas vehicle programs. PTT is responsible for granting low-interest loans to fleet operators to fund the conversion of diesel engines to natural gas, or to buy engines to repower vehicles.

About Omnitek Engineering, Corp.

Omnitek Engineering, Corp., formed in 2001, 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 systems and diesel-to-natural gas conversion technologies, 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 thread 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.
