Whats the easiest way to get better mpg? I just took out my backseat yesterday to get rid of unneeded weight because i never use it and needed some room. Whats some easy ways to get better gas mileage?
Yeah. At 70mph, you're jeep is working twice as hard as it is at say, 55. Just because it has to push that extra air out of the way. It's all about aerodynamics. Check all of your spark plugs and make sure they are cleaned up and not burnt off and the electrode worn down.Nate1010 said:Well speed is my problem cause my hood tries to lift off when i drive on the highway haha. But i dont have all the money to do all the tune up stuff.
X2 I run 89 because I've got a spark knock that I've got to fix an the higher octane quiets her down. But if you're using higher octane in your engine for long periods of time, you're waiting your money(not too much, but still money) and you're speeding up the carbon build up in your engine because the fuel isn't being burned completely.steve1981 said:the octane rating doesn't have anything to do with mpg. the 90 is not "the good stuff" 90 burns colder and longer, the 87 burns hotter and faster. different compression will require different octane levels so the motor will not knock. if you pay for 90 when you should run 87 your wasting your money
