Fuel Saving Tips

Gas-powered turbos

Gas, turbo, DI powered cars or Ford EB pickups can provide either sport or economy, they won't d both at the same time. For economy, baby the accelerator and try to let the superior torque these engines offer do their job keeping RPM low. When at speed, use cruise, and the great torque will prevent unnecessary downshifts and minimum turbo spooling, long turbo life and good mpg. Occasionally show off the power it's got, but too often and you'll wish you had opted for the NA engine. The advantage is refinement. They behave like larger displacement or diesel engines when driven easy. Or speed if that's your thing.
