The simple truth about saving gas
Posted by keelynet on May 18, 2009
The sloppiness of the automobile manufacturers is finally catching up with them but I wonder what oil threatening secrets and technologies they have bought and locked away over the decades;
“Cars with internal combustion engines are, on average, 50 per cent more fuel-efficient than those built three decades ago. Yet the amount of gasoline they consume per kilometre has changed little.
Despite increased use of lighter materials, the average car is roughly 270 kilograms heavier than in 1981. It leaps from zero to 100 kilometres per hour in 9.5 seconds instead of 14. It comes equipped with air conditioning, air bags and electric motors to move windows, seats, mirrors and tailgates.
If the efficiency improvements had all gone into boosting fuel economy, the average American vehicle would already get 6.2 litres per 100 kilometres (38 miles per U.S. gallon).
At that rate, there would be no reason for carmakers to fret about achieving the new U.S. standards – 7.8 litres by 2011 and 6.7 by 2020. They’d match the Chinese fuel-economy regulation and be close to Europe’s and Japan’s. Instead, the average remains stuck at 8.5 litres per 100 kilometres, only marginally better than 1981. And almost all that modest gain came during the 1980s.” – Source
14 Ways to Save Money on Fuel Costs – This eBook is the result of years of research into various methods to increase mileage, reduce pollution and most importantly, reduce overall fuel costs. It starts out with the simplest methods and offers progressively more detailed technologies that have been shown to reduce fuel costs.
As a bonus to readers, I have salted the pages with free interesting BONUS items that correlate to the relevant page. Just filling up with one tank of gas using this or other methods explained here will pay for this eBook. Of course, many more methods are out there but I provided only the ones which I think are practical and can be studied by the average person who is looking for a way to immediately reduce their fuel costs.
I am currently using two of the easier methods in my own vehicle which normally gets 18-22 mpg and now gets between 28 and 32 mpg depending on driving conditions. A tank of gas for my 1996 Ford Ranger costs about $45.00 here so I am saving around $15-$20 PER TANK, without hurting my engine and with ‘greener’ emissions due to a cleaner burn!
The techniques provided in this ebook begin with simple things you can do NOW to improve your mileage and lower your gas costs. – $15 eBook Download / Source to BuyAdvertisements
