Fuel Saving Tips

Go WOT in turbocharged performance vehicles occasionally

Excessive low-load, low-RPM driving in turbocharged performance vehicles causes excessive carbon buildup in the cylinder and on the spark plug that can cause misfires and knock if left unchecked. It may seem counterintuative, but you need to burn off these carbon deposits occasionally by driving spiritedly for a little bit (note:obey all local speed laws).
