Fuel Economy Tips


First, start by finding a good quality gasoline; one that does not contain alcohol. This may be a challenge but it is one worth seeking out. Alcohol has a slower burn rate than gasoline. When your fuel contains 10% alcohol, it is watered down so to speak. It is not as volatile. It will not produce as much energy when it burns. Your mileage will drop like a rock. Oh, but you paid less per gallon for it; that is a savings; Bull! You didn't save anything if your mileage dropped by 10 to 20 percent; and it will. The major oil companies do not add alcohol to their fuel. They may charge a few cents more per gallon, but your vehicle will perform better and your mileage will benefit. So how do you know if alcohol is in the gasoline if It does not have to be advertised on the pumps? Ask the station manager. If they do not know, chances are, it contains alcohol. Once you find a quality gasoline, it may take a few tanks to use up all of the existing alcohol. Each time you add fuel, you are mixing it with old fuel (unless you run all of the old fuel out). Get in the habit of keeping track of your mileage. Write it down. Try to use pumps that are on level ground. If the vehicle is pointing down hill, it will allow you to put more fuel in the tank. If it is pointing up hill, it will allow less fuel. Also consider the pumping speed. Try to pump the fuel at the same rate. When it clicks off, stop; don't add any more (for pumps that are good, not high pressure pumps). Find a pumping rate that you can relate to. I use a counting method. I try to pump a gallon every 10 seconds; that is 1/10th gallon every second. Pumping at the same rate, from the same pump is the best way I have found to track my local mileage. When I go on trips, I use BP, Marathon, and Exxon oil companies. I have heard that Texaco gasoline is good, and some Shell blends. If you have to pay more per gallon to get non alcohol fuel, do it.

Fuel economy is all about efficiency. Clean synthetic oil reduces friction, Clean air filter lets your engine breath. Use Low resistance spark plugs; NGK is a good brand. Tire pressure, very important. Low pressure causes friction. Friction slows you down. Driving habits; start off slow; gradually pick up speed; start slowing down early. Use neutral to coast down hills. Get rid of excess weight in the vehicle - don't carry things you don't need day in day out. All of the above make a difference.

1 to 3 ounces of Acetone can be mixed with 10 gallons of gas (almost 4 liters). Acetone affects the surface tension of gas and diesel and makes it spray a finer mist; thus better combustion. Expect 3 to 4 miles per gallon increase. Xylene, increases octane. Add 1 to 3 ounces with 10 gallons of gas or diesel; another 3 or 4 miles per gallon (must be used along with Acetone).

Moth balls are my favorite. Moth balls made from Naphthalene. Add 1 moth ball to each 4 gallons of gasoline or diesel. Expect 4 miles per gallon or more. 15 to 50 percent improvement. They must be toe ones made of 99.5% Naphthalene

Acetone and Xylene improve the efficiency of the burn; thus more energy is extracted from the gas/diesel. Same goes for the Naphthalene Moth balls. Those things you can do right now; with little cost, but big savings.

Electrolysis of water is going to accomplish the same thing as the additives. It is going to cause all of the gasoline vapors to burn up. But you have a much bigger investment up front. Works for diesel too.

The hydrogen and oxygen gases (HHO) are added to your motors Air way. It gets sucked into the engine and burned. The intake manifold distributes the air/fuel mixture that your injectors spray into it. That spray gets sucked through the engines valves - to the combustion chambers, then ignited by your spark plugs. The explosion is timed so as to force the piston - down, which turns the motor. This process causes a suction at the intake manifold. That suction powers your break booster. You can share the brake booster vacuum hose with the HHO. Use a "T" fitting close to where the hose connects to the motor.

Hydrogen is safer than gasoline. It is 14 times lighter than air. It rises very fast. Gasoline fumes fall to the ground and accumulate. HHO is very explosive, but, you are not going to store it. You are going to use what you make as you make it. That way is safe.

Hydrogen is our future fuel. We - can - make it ourselves; that is why big business and governments want to suppress it. Learn what you can about it, while the information is available. You may need to use what you know some day.
