Fuel Saving Tips

Use high-quality synthetic lubricants.

The most inefficient part of your car is the motor. A minority of the potential chemical energy that enters your cyclinders will be converted into usable power; most of the energy in the fuel is lost due to pumping losses, friction, and heat-transfer. Reducing the friction in your engine, transmission, and differentials by using a PAO based, non petroleum lubricant (Like Amsoil, Redline, or Royal Purple), will increase your feul efficiency 3-10%. The effect is most noticable in large 4WD vehicles, and is less noticable in lighter cars. For instance, my 2001 2.3L Accord milage increased by about 7% after switching, as you can see in my fuel history.
