Does Xtreme Fuel Treatment really work to increase MPG in cars?
There are mixed opinions on this product.
That's why there is so many distributors. Also, there is a 100% money back guarantee. Xtreme Fuel treatment does work. I was skeptical at first and after a trip to Sydney and back and round town driving my fuel consumption has been clearly reduced. When to Super Cheap Auto and there is no equivalent product on the shelf.
It is just another in a long line of products that do nothing but move money from your pocket to the pocket of all those distributors. Fact is that as of 2010, the U.S. EPA has tested more than a dozen supposed gas saving fuel additives and has yet to find any that offered an increase in gas mileage. In addition, Syntek fails to offer the results of any independent testing to verify its benefits. Syntek touts Xtreme Fuel Treatment's EPA registration, but the EPA requires this of any additive, regardless of testing or effectiveness.
I received a free sample of Xtreme Fuel Treatment for testing purposes from a distributor wanting me to test it fairly. Here is the result of my test on a 1999 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner 2.7 Liter 4 cylinder with A/T and 124,000 miles on the odometer. Truck runs perfectly and was tuned up at 100,000 miles. Tires were at 32 psi and A/C was never run during this test.
Fuel Mileage 1999 Toyota
10 Tanks of Regular 87 octane Shell
Tank 1 without treatment = 19.5 mpg
Tank 2 without treatment = 20.3
Tank 3 without treatment = 20.8
Tank 4 with treatment 1/2 ounce = 16.9
Tank 5 with treatment 1/4 ounce = 17.4
Tank 6 with treatment 1/4 ounce = 19.4
Tank 7 with treatment 1/4 ounce = 20.0
Tank 8 with treatment 1/4 ounce = 19.0
Tank 9 with treatment 1/4 ounce = 20.1
Tank 10 with treatment 1/4 ounce = 19.8
As you can see in the beginning it actually hurt my mileage and then on the 3rd treatment I was getting basically what I was getting before I used this product. Notice the first treatment when my mileage dropped by almost 4 mpg over the previous test without the treatment. I tested this product honestly driving as I normally do about 75% city and 25% highway. I was not trying to get good mileage, nor was I driving hard to hurt mileage. The bottom line is that the product does not work and in fact in the beginning it hurts your mileage. This product is a 100% total waste of money as I suspected but I was open minded and gave it a fair test. It simply does not work.
If you mean does the A/C cause the engine to use more fuel, the answer is yes and no. In city driving the A/C does indeed cause the engine to use more fuel. On the highway at speed, the engine uses about the same amount of fuel with the A/C on as with the A/C off and windows down. It also depends on the model year of the car. Older cars have A/C compressors that… Read More
Fuel consumption of a car will generally increase with age. In other words, MPG will go down. How much depends on how well the engine and other drivetrain components are maintained. Many different parts can wear out and reduce efficiency. Some are inexpensive and easy to replace, like spark plugs, sensors and thermostats. Major mechanical parts like rings and valve seats that can reduce compression are much more expensive to replace or repair. So it… Read More
It causes the alternator to work harder to keep the battery charged. The engine spins the alternator and that requires the engine to work harder using more fuel. But, although that is very true, the amount of extra fuel you will use is negligible. Enjoy the electronics as the extra fuel used is so small as to be a non-issue.
A car needs fuel to run. So when a car increases speed, its need for fuel increases too. The faster the car is going, the greater the need for fuel to burn will be. The same is true of when a car decreases speed. When a car decreases its speed, it does not have to burn as much fuel.-------The wind resistance against a car varies with the cube of its velocity. This means that the… Read More
Air conditioning uses a compressor to chill the freon that cools the air. The compressor requires a good bit of power to run- and places an additional load on the engine. This requires the engine to burn more fuel, and your gas mileage decreases. There is no free lunch- the power to run that compressor had to come from somewhere, right?
All depends on what make/ model/ engine size/ weight.. Etc.. But most cars that are being released are very fuel efficient, like a Toyota Ayo is 65.7 miles to the gallon. Hope this helped.
There's the basic's like keeping your tires inflated to the correct pressure, replacing your spark plugs/getting a tune-up, keeping an eye on your driving habits - don't speed up to red lights, don't put the accelerator to the floor if you don't need to, etc..., replace your air filter. I started using a fuel catalyst about 7 months ago, and have seen about 10-15% increase in fuel economy consistently. It helps your engine burn fuel… Read More
The smart car gets 80 mpg in Europe because it uses a deisel engine. The US is only getting/selling the gasoline version, which accounts for the different/lower (40 mpg) efficiency.
There are 2 different vehicles to mention here. One is the Motorcycle T-Rex Trike kit which gets 34 to 39mpg using a Kawasaki 1400cc engine. It could be mistaken for a car. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38TFetQAe2o Engine: http://www.choicequote.co.uk/kawasaki_ZZR_1400.asp The other is the Aptera Typ-1E (electric) and the Typ-1H (Hybrid) also called the T-Rex early on. The prototype achieved 230mpg with aims for a production level of 300 to 330mpg. Link: http://www.popularmechanics.com/automotive/new_cars/4261425.html?page=10
There is no such thing as a Stock race car. The fact that it is a race car means it is not stock. MPG depends on exactly what type of race car you are asking about. Suffice to say, none get good mileage.
Yes there are. They are small cars that run on the small C02 cartridge like the ones used in air guns, in tire and ball inflators and in other applications. i dont like you i dont eather
Spark plugs, spark plug wires, air cleaner filter, oxygen sensor, fuel filter, and plenty of air in your tires.
Yes of course it can. The liquid fuel engine has lower mpg when starting cold. And everyone knows electric batteries don't work so well in the cold. --------- No it cannot hurt a hybrid car's mpg.

There are some cars like the 2010 Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, Honda Civic, Toyota Prius Hybrid. Most hybrid cars get good gas mileage.
no set formula. varies by how much power, transmission, age, all sorts.
Can a car get noticably better mpg if the fuel tank is maintened at its lowest point to reduce total weight?
Absoluetly NOT! It isn't depends the position of the tank!
No, of course not. It will really make no difference at all. High flow or performance air filters only make a difference at high RPM's. Under normal driving you will see almost no difference. You might see a very slight increase in MPG but not much.
The air conditioning compressor is belt driven from the engine. While compressor is on it adds another load to the engine. Therefore; yes it does require additional fuel to be used to compensate for the additional engine load.
There really is no incentive for the automotive companies to either design or produce high mpg vehicles. Even though there are government mandates for mileage on U.S. cars, this is a misnomer. The law more or less states a manufacturer must meet mileage standards as an average of all cars produced. And, there are plenty of ways to maximize the driving tests for a vehicle, many of questionable/ethical and borderline legal. Also, often the government… Read More
To answer this question, you must first define the meaning of the word "car". If you use the loosest definition, then I believe the following answers the question. In the mid-nineteen eighties, the Guinness Book of World Records' record was held by an experimental Mercedes Benz, that if I recall correctly, used a single cylinder engine of about 49cc that was cycled on and off at full throttle so the "car" vacillated between about 25… Read More
This depends on whether you're going gas or electric. VW is in the process of adding the finishing touches on their 1L model which is boasting 285mpg on gas For diesel VW takes it again, by setting a records 67 mpg with their Jetta diesel but again contributing factors affect everything as far as electric cars, it would depending on the variables of how long it could hold a charge, whether you lose more power… Read More
Wait until your fuel meter is exactly on one of the white markings. -Write down the current odometer reading. -Find out how many gallons your tank holds (lets say 10 gallons). -Drive around like you normally would, watching the fuel meter. -When it has gone down exactly 1/4 of the way (indicated by the number of white marks, if there are 8 marks, wait until it has gone down two marks) write down the current… Read More
Usually highway driving is where a car gets the most mpg.
That would depend on the price of the fuel
265/30 = 8.833 gallons (rounded)
1100 mi * 1 gal / 20 mi = 55 gal
It would cost 309 miles ÷ 21 mpg x cost_of_a_gallon_of_fuel = 145/7 x cost_of_a_gallon_of_fuel The last time I filled up with diesel it cost me 145.9p per litre, meaning 1 gallon cost approx 663.3p meaning it would have cost me: £97.60 to drive 309 miles at 21 mpg
674 miles @ 21 mpg will require 674/21 = 32.1 gallons (approx).

Fill the fuel tank to the top and record the mileage. The next time you fill up record the mileage and number of gallons. Now divide the number of gallons into the number of miles driven since last fill up and you will have the mpg.
The Toyota Celica gets approximately twenty four road miles per gallon and thirty three highway miles per gallon.
Since gas price rose alot, it ranges from $4-5 per gallon, so if it goes 25mpg you should divide 500 by 25, which is 20, so you times that by the cost, so it will cost you from $80-$100 just to go 500 miles
The sparks plugs fire and ignite the fuel in a Gasoline engine, and compression compresses the fuel until it ignites in a Diesel engine.
34 mpg equates to about 14.455 km per liter.
An Imperial gallon has 20% more volume so the car will go 20% further assuming identical driving conditions. 24 times 1.2 = 28.8 mile per imperial gallon.
Some suggestions that work for any car: -make sure the tires are filled at least to the tire pressure recommended in the owners manual. You can also fill them to the max pressure on the tire to improve gas mileage slightly. -make sure the car is in good tune with everything working correctly, clean air & fuel filters and good properly-gapped plugs. -drive slowly. The faster you go the harder the car has to work… Read More

The estimated mileage per gallon of a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ is 33 on the highway. That is approximately equal to more than 500 miles of driving per tankful. This efficiency primarily is due to a six-speed automatic transmission on all Malibu models.
The smart car....i think so anyways, things look like go-karts
In a word, "tires". Assuming your engine is in good repair, tires have the largest impact on fuel economy. I drive a '96 Dodge Ram 1-ton (not dually) long bed, quad cab, V-10, 6500 lb empty weight, with moderately aggressive M+S tires. I watched my mileage very closely from day 1, and it ran a very consistent 10 mpg. I was trying to juggle the tire air pressure based on recommended pressure, tread wear, and… Read More
If your car gets 25 miles per gallon mpg divide the mileage 642 by the mpg to get the number of gallons needed to make the trip?
WE DONT MAKE THOSE. not here, escort? best car in gas, Honda Civic with V-tech E engine. or old VW diesel rabbits. in the affordable catagory. the Jetta TDI
If you average 55mpg, it will take you 37 gallons. The way this is calculated is simple distance divided by average fuel economy.
Waxing a car might provide temporary protection against paint oxidation and degradation from the ultraviolet portion of sunlight, but only if UV blockers are in the wax. A thick, hard wax also offers slight protection against rust from moisture accumulating in pinholes in the paint surface. Waxing could damage a car's chrome components if the wax is applied but not removed when dry by polishing. A friend waxed his Lotus Elite before storing the car… Read More
Car companies manufacture fuel efficient cars to conserve the limited amount of gasoline we have left, reduce greenhouse emissions, and provide drivers with a way to save money on gasoline costs.
