How to Improve Your Fuel Economy

As a consumer, you surely want to make the most out of the products and services that you spend your money on. To that end, it's important that you keep an eye out and care for your vehicle's fuel economy. To help you out in this department, this post will go over a few ways in which you can use the gas that you pour into your vehicle efficiently.

Maintain Your Vehicle

First, you need to realize that driving around in a vehicle in bad shape can be very wasteful, since its problems may be forcing the engine to work harder. This is why it's crucial to maintain your vehicle in good condition.

Utilize Gasoline Additives

Certain products, such as AMSOIL's top-of-the-line P.i. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive, are designed to help you save money and get the most out of the fuel that you use in your vehicle. As your engine ages, fuel deposits accumulate on the fuel injectors, intake valves, and combustion chamber. This fuel additive restores power and performance, improving gas mileage between 2.3 and 5.7%. P.i. also reduces emissions of hydrocarbons (HC) up to 15%, carbon monoxide up to 26%, and nitrous oxides up to 17%. If you own a diesel, consider AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean. Diesel engines operate at very high temperatures. Highly engineered injectors maintain these high temperatures with clearances of 1-3 microns. For comparison, a human hair is 70-100 microns. Even the smallest of deposits can lead to sticking or seizure reducing performance and fuel economy. AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean is specifically built to clean all kinds of diesel fuel injector systems, including high-pressure common-rail designs. It restores horsepower to your engine by lubricating the fuel pump and injectors, minimizing soot, and separating fuel from water. If you are experiencing engine knock in your two- or four-stroke engine, you need AMSOIL Dominator Octane Boost. Engine knocks are uncontrolled, explosive ignitions of fuel inside the combustion chamber. The result is a knock or ping sound, and if left unchecked, it reduces engine power and can cause serious damage. Low-octane fuels have higher risk of knock, and the right amount of octane will eliminate engine knock all together. Dominator increases octane number by up to 4 points, improving ignition and engine response while helping your fuel burn cleaner and reducing corrosion.

Drive Carefully

Speeding, or hitting your brakes too often will result in you wasting more fuel than you need. If you want to be more fuel-conscious, go at a slower and steadier pace so you don't overwork your engine.

Think About the Weight

As you can imagine, your vehicle will require more effort and energy (i.e. gas) to move the heavier it gets. For that reason, it's important to avoid stuffing your vehicle with things if you want to save fuel.

For the Best Synthetic Oil use AMSOIL

Using AMSOIL's synthetic oil in Ypsilanti, as well as its gasoline additive, on your vehicle are great ways to save time and money.
