Fuel Saving Tips

Ford Ecoboost

Seems I'm learning especially with direct-injection, turbo charged, gas-powered engines that, unlike diesel engines with the same kind of systems that can suck in lots of air w/o more fuel in the mix, it's very important to prevent the turbo from spooling fast and hard by keeping light pressure on the accelerator and avoid downshifts when possible. Use the extra low-end torque via the turbo, straight injection system to accelerate and maintain speed. Otherwise, they'll be no economy advantage.
