Get better gas mileage at MaxMPG…

Cimg0247-435X318MAKE subscriber John writes “I started this site because of the importance, to ma at least, of vehicles that get good mileage. You don’t necessarily need an overly complicated hybrid (though I’m a fan of hybrids) to get good mileage. My goal is to get at least 40 mpg out of my Nissan pickup simply by making the engine more efficient and improving the aerdynamics while not taking away from its utility. This is important to me because of the environmental impact of cars and because of national security. We are all impacted by the environment but I’m in the Navy, have been deployed to the Middle East four times and so have a keen interest in our nation weening itself from oil as much as possible.” Link.

    Great. Everyone need these. There are several changes you can make on Improving Your Car’s Gas Mileage. Some of these modifications have to do with aerodynamics. Other changes have to do with your engine and exhaust system. And still others have to do with your tires.
