How To Get The Best Gas Mileage While Driving Your Car

Apr 4, 2008
There are many ways to increase gas mileage while driving your vehicle. Gas prices increase or fluctuate on a daily basis and in some parts of the world many people are spending more than twice the amount for petrol. You may have considered buying a hybrid but they still are rather expensive compared to other vehicles. When you keep up on the maintenance of your vehicle you should maintain optimal miles per gallon and scheduling regular maintenance and keeping your vehicle tuned up should keep your engine running optimally. Most new vehicles only require tune ups every one hundred thousand miles.

You may not recall your last tune up and if you bought a used vehicle there are often no service records. Consider buying a used car from a reputable dealer or used car lot and often maintenance check and a tune up has been done. Used car dealers may not always do a full tune up prior to selling a used car if the vehicle is running well. If you have your doubts ask and if the motor is running a little rough then see if the will do a maintenance check and tune up free prior to buying that used car for sale.

Peak gas mileage will be consistent on your car or truck when your vehicle is taken in for regularly schedule service and maintenance checks including oil changes. An engine diagnostics check often can discover faulty sensors that may have a negative impact on your gas mileage. A perfect example is a faulty oxygen sensor that is replaced can improve gas mileage up to 40%. It pays to have your car or truck regularly serviced and an engine diagnostics performed if a check engine light comes on or you notice a noticeable decrease in gas mileage.

Regular maintenance and regular oil changes based on your vehicles owners manual can help you maintain good gas mileage. When you replace a dirty oil and oil filter you can see an increase in gas mileage up to 2%. That beats driving around town looking to save 5 cents a gallon! Did you know if you replace a dirty air filter you can be increasing gas mileage up to 10%. If you remove extra weight out of you car this will also help improve fuel economy. If you are sick and tired of filling your gas tank and wasting gas consider downsizing to a more fuel efficient used car.

So if a hybrid car is out of the question and your cars maintenance is done regularly what else can you do for the best gas mileage. Your probably already using mileage charts and an expensive exotic electric hybrid is not practice. There are fuel additives and those work by keeping you engine and fuel lines clean so there is no buildup. They can also help keep fuel injectors clean further increasing gas mileage. Most fuel saving devices do not work but some do and it it may be had to chose a good fuel saving device from a scam product.

One of the latest devices that is gaining in popularity and getting mention even in the news is HHO gas. HHO gas can be generated from a HHO gas car kit or plans and blended with you current gas or diesel gasoline which may give you the best gas mileage ever. HHO gas generator is introduced into the intake manifold and most HHO plans or kits are easy to follow for simple construction or installation. Some refer to such a systems as hydrogen on demand. A simple HHO fuel cell is can easily fit under the hood of a car and in larger engines more than one cell can further improve gas mileage. This technology is experimental but because it can be constructed or installed at home most basic starter kits can be made for under 100 dollars if you shop around and price parts. HHO gas kits are helping people who implement this technology get the best gas mileage of 15-40% on average and in some cases much higher. The other benefits besides improving gas mileage is an increase in power and usually improved emissions.
