Two Ways To Improve Your Car’s Fuel Efficiency

It seems that the price of gasoline has been going up and up every time you go to the pump. With the price of fuel continuing to rise and no end to this promlem in sight, here are a couple of steps you can take that can improve your car’s fuel efficiency.

The first step is a no-brainer and very easy to do on a regular basis. If you simply purchase a digital tire gauge, a somewhat inexpensive gadget, you can check your tire pressure every time you fill up your gas tank. Properly inflated tires can improve your fuel efficiency by upwards of 10%. Consult your owner’s manual, the tires themselves, or your local auto professional to determine what the optimum level of inflation should be.

The second step to help save money on fuel is only slightly more complicated and involves making use of a new technology. Most cars continue to operate on old technology based spark plugs. The newer technology involved in what is called a pulse plug can increase fuel efficiency by up to 6%. Pulse plugs are a relatively new breakthrough in automotive technology. Pulse plugs have the appearance and fit of standard spark plugs but they contain within them an additional feature called a capacitor. The capacitor on a pulse plug is an electrical device that increases the sparks intensity. A larger and more intense spark has the effect of more efficiently igniting fuel. The cost of pulse plugs is greater than that of standard plugs, but they pay for themselves in improved gas mileage. They also have the added benefit of improving a vehicles overall acceleration performance by up to 10% when compared to standard spark plugs.

Using these two simple methods, one a simple ongoing maintenance technique and the other the installation of a new part, fuel efficiency on any car can be improved. These methods work on everything from light duty trucks and passenger cars to the more heavy duty full size pickups and sport utility vehicles. Improving a vehicle’s gas mileage can ease the strain of vehicle costs on the owner’s pocketbook.
