A significant increase in traffic, as well as restricted oil resources lead to raised prices on motor fuel. This tendency makes vehicle owners look for ways to reduce cost of “food for the iron horse.” Certainly the best way to preserve financial expenses is to economize. Today Internet shows a lot of information promising to reduce the consumption of fuel in a car. This is something to think about. But if it is so simple, then why your neighbor or acquaintance does not save, for example, 30% of fuel? Therefore, such proposals should be treated with utmost caution.
Speaking of ways to save fuel, start with the fact that they have to be systematic and comprehensive. They are a composition of many components that were put together using personal experience of drivers. Let us examine them in more detail.
First of all, reducing fuel consumption is only possible for a serviced vehicle.
Have you ever wondered why the tire companies recommend prescribed tire pressure, same recommended pressure in all four tires? It optimizes ride comfort, reduces tire rolling resistance and contributes to fuel economy.
Also, reducing fuel consumption is incompatible with increasing comfort while driving. Powered auxiliary devices such as air conditioning, heater glass, tape recorder, refrigerator or coffee maker use a lot of power generated by additional fuel consumption. Therefore, without much need it is not recommended to use similar devices in a car.
Another measure to combat losses of fuel is keeping the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Yes, we are not able to change the shape of the car, which was originally designed by the manufacturer. But we can ensure that it remains the same during the drive. In other words, open windows, trailers, cargo on the roof significantly increase the resistance to movement, and correspondingly increased fuel consumption required to produce a sufficient thrust to overcome the resistance.
Do not neglect the latest achievements in the field of automotive electronics. Equipping the vehicle with an on-board computer saves up to 0.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. Owners of cars need to look closely at the cruise-control, with an optimal control algorithm, that maintains the speed corresponding to minimum fuel consumption.
The steps outlined above can be described as institutional. There are also technical – actions improving fuel or fuel system.
In our opinion, significant promise is in use of so-called mixed fuels. It is economically viable to add other components of less cost, and get the same output, same flow rate but at a lower price. Mixing gasoline as a source of fuel can be achieved with the installation of mixing and dissolving liquids such as USB GlobeCore that blends two to five components. Use of injection and hydrodynamic milling increases octane number of gasoline and provides its non-breaking for at least 180 days.
