10 tips to Increase Fuel Mileage on a Car
Unfortunately for motorists, it looks like the price of fuel isn’t going down any time soon. Here are a few tips that will make your visits to the pump less frequent.
A vehicle’s fuel consumption obviously depends on its size and mechanical features, but your driving habits also have an influence. Here are some measures to adopt if you want to reduce your overall fuel expenditures.
Reduce your speed
The higher your speed, the more your vehicle will burn fuel, whether you drive a subcompact or an SUV. This can be explained by air resistance, which increases as you go faster.
Maintain a constant speed
Overly frequent accelerations and decelerations play a role in your vehicle’s fuel consumption. By maintaining a constant speed, you will save a considerable amount of fuel. Cruise control is your friend!
When you decelerate gradually, instead of braking abruptly, you improve the fuel consumption of your vehicle and you lengthen the life of your brake pads. Sudden accelerations should also be reduced to a minimum.
Change gears faster
If your vehicle has a manual transmission, you will save a lot by changing gears as soon as possible. An engine running at 3,000 RPM burns much more fuel than at 2,000 RPM. Normally, you have to change gears at 2,000 RPM for a gas engine and 1,700 RPM for a diesel engine.
Make sure your tires are properly inflated
Poorly inflated tires can also have an impact on fuel consumption. Air pressure that is below what the automaker prescribes increases rolling resistance,
Check your air conditioner
Though it’s pleasant in the summer, your vehicle’s air conditioner contributes to increasing fuel consumption. Use it intelligently.
Fuel overconsumption ?
Try CARBON CLEANING !
Reduce consumption of your vehicle
Preventive engine cleaning enables you to restore engine parts rather than replacing them, thereby saving vehicle owners on costly parts, such as a new turbocharger ($ 1.350 - 3.100), catalytic converter ($ 600 - 2.000), DPF ($ 600 - 2.000) or EGR valve ($ 370 - 500).
These problems result mainly from poor combustion, which stifles the engine.
So before replacing your engine parts, try Carbon Cleaning. A dirty engine as the result of carbon deposits is the new threat to vehicle performance.
Don’t let the engine run for no reason
When you are stopped for several minutes, get used to turning off the engine. A vehicle running in neutral burns fuel for no reason, which isn’t a good thing for the environment and your wallet. In the winter, however, it is a good thing to let the engine run for a little while before leaving. A cold engine uses much more fuel than a warm one.
Keep your vehicle well maintained
A well maintained vehicle will have lower fuel consumption. Think about having regular oil changes. Remember also to change the oil filters, air filters, etc. It will lengthen the life of your vehicle.
Don’t overload your vehicle unnecessarily
An overloaded vehicle is heavier and therefore uses more fuel. Don’t carry heavy objects in the trunk for no reason; this could make you save a few dollars at the pump.
Think about aerodynamics
Air resistance is an important factor in fuel consumption. If you don’t need them, take your bicycle or ski racks off the roof. Open windows, especially at high speeds, also affect the aerodynamics of your vehicle.
Keep your engine clean
Engines become dirty due to modern day stop-and-go traffic conditions, as well as imposed speed limits, fuel quality, new anti-pollution requirements, and driving at low speeds to save on gas. These symptoms manifest in the form of saturated EGR valves, clogged DPF filters, and dirty turbochargers.
In the past, it was possible for drivers to clean their engines through normal highway use. High speeds equal hot temperatures, which enables self-cleaning engines. However, this is no longer possible given modern traffic conditions.
Carbon Cleaning® burns off and eradicates carbon deposits
The Carbon Cleaning machine has a remarkable cleaning capacity. With this advanced technology, developed over several years, hydrogens is pulsed through the air intake pipes, burning off up to 75% of the carbon deposits that prevent your engine from running smoothly.
