Increase your gas mileage by 2 MPG

Posted on July 15, 2010 at 10:41 AM
As with all other ideas in this web site, saving 2 of something is the theme of this entry. In this case, we're looking to increase our MPG by 2. This can be done in a variety of ways but the easiest and most obvious way is to go a little slower. Keep an eye on your tachometer - the gauge that says how fast the motor is spinning - measured in Revolutions Per Minute (RPMs). This will be different depending on what car you drive but I find that if I keep the RPMs under 3000, I achieve better gas mileage. To achieve this, I need to keep my speed at about 65.

This can actually be fun and by making this a new challenge for yourself, you will go slower and decrease the chances of getting a speeding ticket. That can be really expensive when you combine the fine and the insurance increase. You see, if you do good (conserve), you will do good (financially).

How about going a step further and leaving the car at home for two days per week and riding the bus, car pooling, or riding your bike? If you use 2 gallons of gas per day, you would save 4 gallons a week or 200 per year. That's about $12 per week or $600 per year. According to this EPA web site:
EPA climate ,
a gallon of gasoline is assumed to produce 19.4 pounds of CO2. That's 77.6 pounds per week or 3,880 pounds of CO2 per year. That is just shy of TWO US TONS!! A pound of C02 is about the size of a baloon 2 1/2 feet across. One ton is about the size of 130,000 gallon milk jugs. Your two tons is about 260,000 gallon milk jugs.

If you're thinking of buying a Prius or something, try the above steps first. If you can leave the car at home half the time, you're doubling your gas mileage. Also the construction and deconstruction of a car uses a massive amount of energy so if you want to reduce your overall contribution to global warming, try leaving your existing car at home. If you work far from home in an area that is not serviced by public transportation and/or carpooling is not an option and you absolutely have to drive, buy the high gas mileage car.

If you have to buy a new car, consider a diesel. The new diesels are not like the old Mercedes that spewed black smoke and would barely start in the winter. They are just like a regular car except they get better gas mileage. The life of the batteries in a hybrid concerns me. That's why I would consider a diesel.

Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve your mileage by as much as 40 percent.

That is one of the main reasons that I am very much interested in knowing the history of the things. As most of the time their names are greatly related with their history. Also sometimes you can realize the importance of the thing just by knowing its name like this one here shows its importance by its name that is “cure all”.
