new spark plugs

  • use the maximum rated tire pressure
  • check your tire pressure often
  • install narrower tires
  • don't use offroad or snow tires if you don't need them.
  • eliminate all dead weight. two of my cars have completely stripped interiors. Also makes big difference in performance.
  • don't keep your fuel tank full (less weight)
  • learn to drive stick. Manual transmissions have less energy loss compared to automatics (10% less)
  • coast whenever possible
  • accellerate at a conservative pace
  • drive at lower speeds
  • run a lighter weight oil. check your owners manual and driving conditions
  • use synthetic oil (less friction on moving parts)
  • ensure proper maintenance to emissions related hardware (O2 sensors, egr, fuel injectors, pcv valve, etc)

The best way to pick up a few miles per gallon is to use a K&N air filter. For a cost of about $40 it is a bargin since it lasts forever. Unlike paper filters which restrict the airflow, the K&N uses a mesh and oil to trap dirt. With a gain in power and gas milage what is to lose? VBD

There are some practical ways to increase the gas mileage but you can use also Fuel Infusion what is a powerful fuel catalyst. Fuel Catalyst realy helps to increase to boost your engine power and your gas mileage.

Not unless the engine using it was specifically designed for it. Gas mileage takes many things into consideration, and if a car is designed to use standard octane gas, the use of high octane gas will not increase the car's mileage - it is just a way of figuratively blowing dollar bills out of the tailpipe.

Yes, higher octane gas does give higher gas mileage for your car. However, the increase in gas mileage may not as great as the increase in the price of the higher octane gas.

There are a few ways to increase gas mileage but the most effective is the use of fuel infusion. Fuel Infusion is a powerful fuel catalyst that improves the efficiency of the combustion process in your car's engine.
