Increase Gas Mileage
The price of gasoline is making all of us crazy. Oil prices aren’t going down any time soon and OPEC isn’t adjusting production to compensate. Did you know that while we pay over $4 a gallon here in the US, that same gasoline in Saudi Arabia and the Emirates is around 50 cents a gallon! Not fair is it?
We need to find ways to increase gas mileage and it is a lot easier than you think.
Through testing done in a real world setting, some amazing tips have arisen and some old ideas have been disproved.
Here are a few to “light your fire”.
1. Moderate driving has been shown to save a significant amount of gasoline. All this means is accelerate slower with less pedal and brake slower when you stop. In other words, don’t drive like a maniac and your gas savings can hit 37%. The average savings was 31% so you can see the importance here.
2. Drive slower. This was a surprisingly effective gas savings method. Simply travel at slower speeds and you can increase MPG by 12% to 14%.
3. Using the cruise control is a way to increase gas mileage by 7% on average with peak savings at about 14%. So set that cruise control when it’s prudent and increase your mileage.
4. Avoid idling for long periods of time. If you are going to be sitting for more than a minute, turn the engine off. This simple thing can save you as much as 19%. Plus you are doing the atmosphere a favor, too. Less exhaust means less emission gases.
Those are some of the things that can help you increase MPG, but what about some of those old wives tales. Do they have merit? Well, our friends tested those, too, and here is what they found.
Using the air conditioning was shown NOT to waste a considerable amount of gasoline. On the contrary, with the A/C of and windows down, more air drag is created and that wastes more gas than the A/C compressor. The savings was thus, insignificant.
Checking the air pressure in the tires was thought to be a major factor in increased gas mileage. Well, the tests are in and, again, the savings was insignificant. You should still check the air in your tires, but don’t expect a big gas savings for it.
So there are the things you can do to increase gas mileage and save some more of your hard earned cash. You don’t need to buy a hybrid car or SUV in order to be green or environmentally correct. As the testers said, “The difference is in how you use your gas foot.” This was the basis for the first tip above.
If you take these tips to heart and combine a couple of them together, you could end up a big winner at the pump. Maybe you won’t win the lottery, but you will increase your gas mileage and spend more time away from the gas pumps.
So go ahead and use the cruise control, run the air and drive the speed limit. You will like the results and so will your wallet.
