How To Improve Your Vehicle’s Fuel Efficiency

How to improve your vehicle's fuel efficiency, it's easy when you know the basics. What is a fuel system, what does it do and how regular car maintenance tips can keep your vehicle's fuel system in great shape.


(NAPSI)—Your car can go farther for less if you take a few steps to keep it efficient.

It helps to take meticulous care of your vehicle by following the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedules and using the right products inside and out. This includes getting your oil changed, rotating your tires, checking hoses and belts for wear, replacing worn windshield wipers and keeping your vehicle clean.

Another way to extend the life of your vehicle and improve fuel efficiency is to make sure your fuel system is clean.

To help, here are a few fuel system basics.

What Does A Fuel System Do?

A fuel system’s job is to properly maintain fuel demand. The fuel is eventually sprayed from the fuel injectors into the intake stream and into the combustion chamber.

What Does A Fuel System Consist Of?

Depending on whether it’s a return or a returnless fuel system, it can consist of the fuel tank, fuel pump, sending fuel lines, fuel rail, fuel injectors, fuel pressure regulator and returning fuel lines. If you have a returnless system, there is no fuel pressure regulator or return fuel lines.

How Do I Know My Fuel System Needs To Be Cleaned?

If your fuel injectors have become clogged from deposits, they are not able to provide the wide and fine spray of fuel needed for the spark to ignite it. There are a few signs that may indicate you need to clean your fuel system.

• You are getting lower gas mileage.

• There is a hesitation when you put your foot on the gas pedal.

• You are experiencing a loss of power when driving your vehicle.

One easy and convenient solution is to use a total fuel system cleaner such as Max-Clean by premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple. It can clean fuel lines and injectors, restore fuel economy and reduce both engine buildup and tailpipe emissions by deeply penetrating and cleaning injectors, carburetors, intake valves and combustion chambers. The lubricant works in a variety of engines whether new or old, gasoline or diesel. One bottle will treat 15 to 20 gallons. You just pour it into a nearly empty tank and refuel.

Fuel system maintenance can easily be added to your regular vehicle maintenance routine. Not only will it improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, it can save you from having to make costly repairs that may be needed when fuel deposits are left to build up.
