Fantastic Ford Fuel Saving Tips
Over the summer many consumers were shocked to learn that fill ups at the pump were setting them back , , even or more. After years of cheap gasoline – who can forget that gas was below one dollar per gallon a mere six years ago – prices have never been higher. OPEC and the gas companies have us over a barrel, of oil that is! Saving money on fuel has never been more critical for car owners and achieving measurable results is the only way you can keep cash in your wallet. Whether you own a Ford, Toyota, Porsche, or any other car on the road, you can reduce your costs by making a few changes to your vehicle. That’s right, there are some great aftermarket Ford parts and other car parts available that can help you save on gas and reduce your pain at the pump.
Performance Air Filter – Your paper air filter restricts your engine from breathing freely. To optimize performance and to achieve better fuel mileage, opt for a reusable cotton gauze air filter favored by race car drivers everywhere. You’ll pay more up front for a reusable air filter, but it will be the last air filter your car will ever need. Get better gas mileage, free up some horsepower, and do your part to keep our community garbage dumps free of unnecessary rubbish.
Tornado Fuel Saver – A stainless steel device from Tornado Products can go a long way in reducing fuel consumption. Working to optimize air flow, a Tornado fuel saver will help your engine burn more efficiently as it mixes fuel and air together. The result is more horsepower, less fuel consumed, and measurable savings at the pump! Tornado works great with both stock and aftermarket air induction systems.
Performance Exhaust System – When it comes time to replace your current exhaust system, why not consider a stainless steel performance exhaust? Made from airliner quality steel, a performance exhaust will work with your engine to improve exhaust flow. Less strain on your engine means less fuel consumed; you’ll also see a noticeable jump in horsepower, improved torque, and enjoy that sport tone emitting from underneath your car.
Cold Air Induction System – The air favored by your car is colder and denser than the hot air it usually consumes. With a cold air induction system in place your engine runs more efficiently and gives your ride an added boost in horsepower and torque. Save on gas and enjoy the throaty tone produced by a cold air induction system.
Go Regular – Unless your Ford or other fine car requires premium fuel, anything more than 87 octane regular is simply unnecessary. Many of today’s vehicles are tuned to run on lower octane fuel meaning you could save as much as 25 cents per gallon at the pump by choosing regular fuel.
Keeping tires properly inflated, driving under 65 mph, and avoiding jackrabbit starts are additional ways for you to save on gasoline. With one or more aftermarket products added to your vehicle plus taking additional measures to reduce fuel consumption you can save several dollars per fill up and help reduce our overall dependence on foreign oil.
