Save Fuel Costs This Summer

Aug 18, 2007
Save fuel costs Wright now In the last years gas prices raised bigger and bigger until some of us gave up at other necessarily things in order to put some gas in the car every day. Because of the high gas prices everyone wants to do something with their car so they can save gas. So here are a few tricks that you can do to save some gas.

All of these tips will help you save some money during the year or even the week.

1. Driving. This is the first rule you should consider about it. You should maintain a regular speed in order to save some gas; fuel goes very faster if you are driving more than 90kmh.You could save up to 15% if you have a normal speed. This might not sound too much but if you count all the km you have made it will be a lot. Also take it easy with the brakes and avoid as much as you can excessive weights on your car.

2. Tires: Check all 4 tires to see if they have the proper inflated pressure. If you do not know how much pressure to put in a tire then check your gas tank door, usually it says there. You can find a tire gauge at any gas station, car service and others. If you manage to find nitrogen gas in order to fill up your tires it is very good, because they will last longer, and you will have less deterioration which means fewer costs.

3. Air Conditioning. This is a real problem and not a myth, use the air conditioning system only when it's needed and you could save some fuel.

4. Alternative Fuels: Use as much ethanol or bio-diesel as you can. Why? Well let's see. What is ethanol? Ethanol or E85 as you will find it at the gas stations is derived from the blend of two fuels: 85% ethanol and 15% petroleum.

Vehicle power is increased if you use E85 up to 2-4%, it reduces emissions, holding tank is bigger than the normal one so you can store more fuel, 1.4 gallons of E85 is equal to 1 gallon gasoline and the most important thing is that the fuel is renewable. What is bio-diesel? Bio-diesel is a fuel which replaces the normal diesel and it is made from vegetable oil.

Unlike other fuels bio-diesel can be used without any modifications at your engine. Always keep in mind that using one of these fuels will stop pollution and will save the nature. If you will remember these tips and apply them every day you should save some money during a year.
