Fuel Saving Tips For Cars and TrucksGET IT FIXED
The first and one of the most important fuel saving tips. To enjoy the full benefits of HHO Gas from your hydrogen generator you must start with a healthy clean running vehicle. Have your car tuned and checked by a good mechanic at least once a year. If something isn't working or doesn't sound right, get it fixed, you will come out ahead in the long run.
Check your tire pressure at least once a month, when they are cold. Warm air from driving increases pressure and gives falsely high readings. Under-inflated tires have more resistance so your car burns more gas to keep the vehicle moving.
Good wheel alignment is also just as important. You can save approximately 6% in gas savings.
Don't loose your grip. Over-inflating your tires will give you slightly better gas mileage because less tread is on the road (less friction), but you loose grip for turning and braking.Don't get lazy with these tire fuel saving tips, they make a big difference.
TIME TO REPLACE YOUR AUTO OXYGEN SENSOR?
The benefits of replacing an O2 sensor periodically as preventative maintenance can restore fuel competence, minimize exhaust emissions and extend the life of the catalytic converter. Oxygen sensors on 1976 through early 1990's should probably be replaced every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Mid 1980s to 1990s every 60,000 miles. On 1996 and to present it is recommended to replace them every 1000,000 miles.CHECK YOUR GAS CAP
One of the often overlooked fuel saving tips. Damaged, loose or missing gas caps cause a yearly loss of approximately 147 million gallons.DON'T OVERFILL YOUR GAS TANK
This may cause gas spillage, especially if your cap is behind the license plate. So, when the pump goes click - don't top it off.EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM
Fill up in the morning or at dawn when the underground storage tanks are colder the gasoline is denser, which equals more mass of gasoline per gallon. Gasoline expands with heat, which equals less gas per gallon. Also gas stations sometimes raise their prices as the day goes by.DON'T FILL UP WHEN THEY ARE
Dirt and sludge is probably being stirred up when a tanker truck is filling the stations tank. You don't want that to transfer into your tank.AGGRESSIVE DRIVING
Edmonds ran a test and found this to be the most significant way to save gas. No jackrabbit starts. Take the long view of the road and brake easy. Don't drive like a maniac. An average of 31 % savings.CHOOSE TO CRUISE
Saves an average of 7%. Evens out the drivers acceleration and changes the way the driver reacts to changes in traffic around them.SLOW DOWN
Lower speeds save gas, it has been proven many times. Speeding tickets aren't cheap either.CHANGE OIL And AIR FILTERS
Change your oil. Clean oil reduces wear caused by friction between moving parts and removes harmful substances from the engine. Your car's air filter keeps impurities in the air from damaging internal engine components. Clogged filters can cause up to a 10 % increase in fuel consumption.LOOSE WEIGHT
Not you personally, but by removing excess weight from the trunk of unneeded items, especially heavy ones. An extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces a typical car's fuel economy by 1 - 2 %.Synthetic Oil vs Regular Oil
When talking about fuel saving tips to lower gas costs, you should definitely include motor oil.
This is a huge ongoing debate between mechanics. That debate will probably not end anytime soon (if ever).
Conventional lubrication oil, which is also known as mineral oil, is a product of the process of frictional distillation, which is used to break down petroleum into a variety of products. In case of conventional oil, the molecular structuring is rather uneven and yet possess excellent high lubrication. The benefit of conventional motor oil is that it costs less than synthetic oil and is obtainable almost universally.
Synthetic oil is man-made and manufactured by the chemical industry. Unlike the nonuniform structure of the molecules in the conventional motor oil, the molecules of the synthetic oil are uniform to the extent of being almost identical to one another. This type of molecular structure is frequently considered as a good characteristic of any lubricant.
As a conclusion it can be said that, to reduce problems in engines, mineral oil should be used on newer cars, and for the later
on years, we recommend using synthetic oil. So, 2-3 years (depending on how much you drive) is
probably a good rule of thumb. Most experts all do agree seem to agree on this.
