How do these products help you save fuel?
The cost of a gallon of fuel remains a thorn in our sides and a drain on our wallets. But there's good news- there are several products available that can improve not only your fuel economy, but also the power and appearance of your ride. Any product that helps your engine operate more efficiently has the potential to save you money at the pump.
Cold air intakes are designed to provide your engine with a dense charge of cool air by reducing the restriction found in most factory filters and intakes. This cooler air contains more oxygen for your engine which allows your computer to lower the amount of fuel required for combustion. A more efficient air/fuel mixture translates into more power for every drop of fuel and better fuel economy.
As your engine inhales through the air intake, it exhales through your exhaust system. A free flowing exhaust system improves engine efficiency through a reduction in exhaust gas back pressure. In addition to fuel savings, you get awesome sound and increased horsepower.
Power programmers are incredibly easy to install and use. They allow you to adjust a variety of settings including air/fuel mixtures, spark timing and shift points to tune your vehicle’s performance to your heart’s desire. Programmers can be used to deliver both dollar stretching fuel economy and tire-squealing horsepower.
The name of the fuel savings game is efficiency. Every little thing you can do to make your engine work less hard can translate into a reduction in fuel usage and a bigger smile (or, at least, a smaller frown) when filling up your tank.
