Get The Best Gas Mileage And Save Money On Gas

Jun 9, 2008
We all see the prices rising for gas and it has been rising steadily over recent years but in recent months it has gotten ridiculous. We all know that the cost of things goes up over time but recent rises have really hurt us all where it hurts most, in our pockets. We are all looking for ways to save money on buying gas but for most people all they can see is that they need their cars and have to pay whatever it takes.

Is there anything that we can do about this? That is the question everybody wants answered so I will try to answer that here. We cannot change the price of oil. Maybe the politicians can do something but for now we are on our own. There are ways to use less gas in the way we drive and the type of vehicles we drive or we can make our own cars and trucks run further on what gas we have.

The first choice is the simplest. You just have to use your car less often. You can do this by combining trips and instead of driving to a different store each time you go out, go to all of them in one round trip. Go shopping every other day instead of every day. Travel with your neighbors and that way you both can save on gas.

We can drive in a way that uses less gas. Not many people are aware of this but hard acceleration and braking wastes gas. If you plan ahead and slow gently you will save gas. Accelerate gently and smoothly and you will use a lot less gas than you would with a heavy boot on the throttle. The secret is to think ahead and see what the traffic is doing in front of you so you do not need to reacte suddenly. This will save you gas.

We can also be more economical by driving smaller and more efficient cars, we can keep our cars serviced more often so they run at optimum efficiency. Another possibility is to fit some gas saving or energy efficient devices to help our cars use less gas.

A lot of gas saving devices have been promoted over the years and while some have made some improvement to gas consumption they generally have cost too much to make any savings worthwhile. Any testing that has been done was often carried out by sceptics who wanted to prove they didn't work. The car industry and oil industry both wanted us to carry on buying what they offered and didn't realy care about helping us reduce gas consumption.

I have not tried many of these but anything you have to keep buying to add to your gas will make the economics of any savings less likely but take a look at them and see for yourself. With gas prices so high now anything that saves gas may make a lot more sense than it did a few years ago.

It seems to be years now that we have been told the future is with hydrogen gas. It still seems to be years away and even when it is fully developed it will take a long time to convert all the gas stations to hydrogen gas stations. There are a few hydrogen cars being tested now but it will be a time before they are common on our roads but there are people who have been working on using their own hydrogen systems to save gas on the cars we already have.

Enthusiasts working away in their garages and workshops have come up with systems that are easily built from regular parts available at local hardware stores and can be put together in a few hours. They explain how to build these kits and fit them to your car and you could be reducing your gas usage in next to no time all thanks to a simple guide you can get online.
