Just How Are Automobiles Evaluated for Fuel Economy?

Fuel economy, or MPG, is gauged under regulated conditions executed in a special laboratory. After performing a series of examinations defined by federal legislation, the brand designers calculate miles per gallon numbers for each and every pre-production prototype. Automobile suppliers test their cars and report the estimated outcomes to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). After the EPA evaluates the results they retest the vehicle at the National Vehicles and Fuel Emissions Laboratory, and the last number is verified.


Fuel Economy – What Does It Mean?

Fuel economy is a preferred term, or a distinct step among anyone that has a car or wishes to get an auto in the United States fuel economy describes the amount of miles your automobile can drive per gallon of fuel. While MPG is a number, “fuel efficiency” is a detailed term referring to exactly how a vehicle can efficiently use fuel.


Choosing the Best Fuel Efficient Vehicle

Driving a fuel efficient automobile will certainly save you cash and positively benefit the environment. Choosing the best fuel efficient car for yourself or your household is essential. Here are a couple of things to take into consideration when selecting one:

  • Try to find good fuel efficiency ratings.
  • Choosing a more recent model since they usually offer better engineering advances in fuel economy.
  • Know what your needs are coupe, sedan, SUV, Crossover, Minivan or Truck?
  • Do your research! And if required, talk to your sales professional for recommendations.

How To Maximize and Maintain The Fuel Efficiency of Cars:

If you currently have a car and want to maximize its fuel efficiency, here are some useful pointers.


Regularly Scheduled Upkeep:

Keeping your car well-kept will improve its performance in the long run. Scheduled oil changes, routine air-filter checks and changes, and spark plug replacements help to maintain your vehicle and will extend its life also.


Watch Your Tires:

Bad or damaged tires will certainly enhance friction and tax your vehicle. Inspect your tire pressure consistently to keep your tires properly inflated. Even proper wheel alignment assists with saving fuel by lowering the amount of drag your car engine needs to overcome. Picking low rolling resistance (LRR) tires also helps improving gas mileage.


Prevent Carrying Unnecessary Items:

Lugging that extra weight in your automobile might impact the fuel economy adversely. Therefore, stay clear of putting bulky items on a roof rack and get rid of large items from your trunk whenever possible.


Keep Track of Your Fuel Economy:

To get the best fuel mileage, you should monitor your vehicle’s performance and MPG. Note the odometer reading and keep an eye on the number of gallons purchased. Simply, calculate your car’s mileage by dividing the number of miles traveled between fill-ups by the number of gallons used to fill up. Any extreme change in the numbers can be a sign of engine trouble.
