40 Fuel Economy Tips & Factors Affecting Your Car's Fuel Efficiency. Improve Gas Mileage.
40 FUEL ECONOMY TIPS TIP NUMBER 1: Do not exceed the indicated speed limit. TIP NUMBER 2: Do not open your window when travelling especially at high speeds. TIP NUMBER 3: Avoid packing items on top of your car. TIP NUMBER 4: Take the aerodynamic shape of your vehicle into account when buying your vehicle. TIP NUMBER 5: Inflate your tyres properly. TIP NUMBER 6: Prefer rib type tyres which are better with regard to rolling resistance than block type tyres. Choose low aspect ratio tyres which are stiffer, allowing for less flexing under load, thus they typically have lower rolling resistance compared to high aspect ratio tyres. TIP NUMBER 7: Buy second hand, good condition tires. TIP NUMBER 8: Choose a vehicle suitable for your needs. Do you really need a power-hungry car? TIP NUMBER 9: Using 4-wheel drive reduces fuel economy. Prefer to use 2-wheel drive cars. TIP NUMBER 10: Remove the excessive weight from your vehicle. TIP NUMBER 11: Fuel also contributes to weight. TIP NUMBER 12: Plan your journey more wisely. Take the amount of traffic, possibly congested routes and the time of the day into account. TIP NUMBER 13: In cold weather, wait for the engine to warm up a bit. TIP NUMBER 14: Incorrect axle alignment influences rolling resistance and increases fuel consumption. TIP NUMBER 15: Prefer not to drive when raining due to water drag effect as you drive on the road. TIP NUMBER 16: Stop aggressive driving. TIP NUMBER 17: Do not over-rev. TIP NUMBER 18: Gear fast, run slow and accelerate slowly. TIP NUMBER 19: Avoid unnecessary idling. Turn off the engine if you anticipate a wait. TIP NUMBER 20: Use overdrive gears and cruise control when appropriate. TIP NUMBER 21: Any electrical equipment in use worsens the fuel economy of the vehicle with air conditioning being the biggest culprit. TIP NUMBER 22: Exploit the force of gravity when going down the hills. TIP NUMBER 23: Avoid coming to a complete stop whenever possible. TIP NUMBER 24: When approaching red traffic lights, either let the car roll itself on gear or select the neutral gear to roll it. TIP NUMBER 25: Keep your engine tuned. Tuning your engine according to your owner's manual can increase gas mileage by an average of 4%. TIP NUMBER 26: Change your oil regularly. TIP NUMBER 27: Check and replace air filters regularly. TIP NUMBER 28: Consider the alternative vehicles. TIP NUMBER 29: Hybrid Electric Vehicles offer another option for car buyers. These vehicles combine the benefits of gasoline engines and electric motors and can be configured to achieve different objectives, such as improved fuel economy and increased power. TIP NUMBER 30: Consider using the public transport such as underground, overground or bus. TIP NUMBER 31: Use a bicycle or just walk if your destination is near. TIP NUMBER 32: Get in the habit of saving all your fuel receipts, recording distance travelled and fuel economy (MPG). TIP NUMBER 33: Leave for your destination a little early so you don't feel pressure to drive faster, brake later and otherwise fall back into bad habits. TIP NUMBER 34: Travelling at a constant speed on a freeway within a flow of traffic (in the same direction) is more efficient than going the same speed in isolation. TIP NUMBER 35: If you regularly travel the same roads, make an effort to memorize. TIP NUMBER 36: In multi-lane traffic, choose the "lane of least resistance" to avoid unnecessary and unpredictable braking/changes in speed. TIP NUMBER 37: Parking in the shade will keep the inside of your vehicle cooler, which can help you minimize use of air conditioning. TIP NUMBER 38: Maintain appropriate following distance to prevent constant brakes which will reduce your speed. TIP NUMBER 39: New forced induction engines tend to use less fuel than their naturally aspirated cousins. Forced induction includes any type of turbocharger or Supercharger that forces air into the combustion chamber. TIP NUMBER 40: Constantly investigate to find out new ways to improve fuel economy. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------- And SOME MORE TIPS: TIP NUMBER 41: Rough asphalt increases tyre losses by ~ 7% compared to smooth asphalt. TIP NUMBER 42: Do not change gears excessively. Use brakes to slow down. TIP NUMBER 43: Low gears shifted at low revs give max torque. Higher gears at higher revs give max power. So use torque or power depending on the need. TIP NUMBER 44: Changing to small diameter drive tyres increases engine RPM but may disturb fuel economy. TIP NUMBER 45: Share your car with family members or friends. If 5 people are going to the same destination, it is sensible to use just one car rather than more.

Fast Diesel? VW Touareg TDI @ the Track
MORE VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightline/2009/06/il-track-tested-2009-volkswag en-touareg-v6-tdi.html?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* Diesels are finally here, sort of. Now that we have the low-sulfur fuel, manufacturers have responded with vehicles that even the great state of California will allow on its hallowed highways. Trouble is, these vehicles aren't exactly cheap. Case in point: the 2009 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI. It starts at nearly $43K, which is over $3,000 more than the base V6. And as the numbers below attest, it's not exactly the fastest SUV we've ever tested. That said, the diesel engine works well in the Touareg, doling out torque right when you need a stiff push in the back. It's quiet, too, and according to the EPA it will return 25 mpg on the highway. See what our road test editor thought about what it can do at the test track after the jump.

VW TDI Fuel Filter Restriction: Causes, Effects, and Cures
Replacing the fuel filter on your Volkswagen TDI is one of the simplest maintenance items you can do, but it is also one of the most crucial. Dr. Dan of Dr. Dan's Biodiesel explains how a clogged fuel filter can cause a multitude of symptoms, ranging from simple low power and hard starting to more deceptive ones such as limp modes, check engine lights, turbo malfunctions, and more. Often these are mis-diagnosed as much more serious problems when all that is needed is a fuel filter replacement. Prolonged operation with a plugged filter can also lead to much more serious and expensive problems. Dr. Dan discusses diagnosis, diesel fuel quality issues and recommended sources, and takes us through the procedure of replacing a fuel filter on a TDI vehicle.
