Scooter Mileage Save Your Gas Money

Mar 11, 2008
The whole world has limited supply of fossil fuels. Naturally as there is less supply and more demand the prices of the petroleum products goes on increasing on continuous basis. In these circumstances everybody is interested in the topic of the scooter mileage.

For a common man the this determines his budget on the transport. So obviously all over the world the research is taking place for getting better mpg. The western countries get their fuel comparatively cheaply. And hence the scooter manufacturers there are not paying much attention in researching for technologies giving better mileage.

However in Asian countries, the main criterion for purchasing the scooter is the gas mileage. So the Indian manufacturers are continuously updating technology to give better mileage. In India the kmpl is from 35-40 kmpl to 55-60 kmpl. The word kmpl means the distance in kilometers covered by the consumption of one liter of the fuel. A small rise in the scooter mileage means a great monetary saving in a middle class household.

What will be the factors affecting the fuel mileage? The first most obvious part will be the payload. If the body of the scooter is heavy then obviously it will consume lot of fuel and in turn will give less mileage. The technology is continuously striving to make the body lighter and lighter. The heavy cast iron parts of the yesteryears were eventually replaced by light weight aluminum alloys. Now these metal parts are being replaced by the plastic parts. Now ABS type plastic is widely used in the body parts.

The second factor will be road condition. The western countries have better roads and so the driving is good. But the Asian countries have very bad roads.
This means that the consumer must be made aware of the fact that he has to take extra precaution on the bad quality roads. The proper air pressure in the tires will result in better scooter mileage. So consumers are educated in this field.

Some companies now offer you some electronic devices. They can guide the rider in changing his driving habits. These devices are of two types. First are visual type's indicators. They show whether you are driving in efficient zone or not. Just looking at arrows can help you to remain within the good zone. In cities you may not be able to see the indicator. So the other types of the indicators are audio type. If you are crossing the safer scooter mileage zone, immediately there will be audio beep.
If the rider takes these signals seriously and changes his bad driving habits, he or she can benefit 10 kmpl easily.
