Lets Save Some Gas

This is for everyone that drives, but especially for those that don't have a desireable income and wants to keep whatever they can in their pocket.

Driving is something that is basicly a neccesity that I bet 99% of people can not avoid. I'm one of those guys that gets mad when I have to go fill up at the gas station, one of those guys that has to throw in 80 bucks or so to get back and forth to work each week. D**N! Gotta get to work and work is not always close to your house so you gotta do what you gotta do. Add that up BAM you can be at 300+ dollars a month easy! (For many its much worse!) Thats not counting your "running around" that you may have to do on top of that. You include all of your other bills, and you begin to look for ways to give yourself a break somehow, someway. Lets stretch our gas!


Thats the focus of this writing. What can we do to save some gas? How can I make this car of mine not use su much gas? Thats where my efforts are going to be focused on. From my research, I hope to provide us all with some guidelines, methods and tips to improve this very common problem. Now there are gas saving products out there (or at least some that claim to be) but how do yo know that they will live up to there claims or be of any benefit at all? I'm an "average Joe" meaning I aint' got alot, no special talents. I'm not at all educated on gasoline technology. What I do is research the subject and pay attention to scientist on the subject. (Hey if you are a scientist, I assume you are worth paying attention to!) I am going to share with you my journeys on increasing miles per tank.

My first move is to ditch the 6 cylinder I have been wheelin around and go get me a "4 banger" (4 cylinder) This I think is my most logical first step towards high mpg. Hey most of those 4 bangers already use less gas so lets start this off right.

NOTE: I remind you that I dont have alot, so please bare with me as we walk down this path. I know alot of you dont either. I really represent the poor man out there. I may cut alot of corners with my methods and will appear pretty rough. I WANT TO HAVE INSANE MILEAGE!! (If possible)

It may make things more difficult but I think that I will aquire an economy car that has computerized fuel injection, 4 cylinder of course. It will be something in the mid to late 90's (at this stage I want to have a more modern look to my daily driver while I inrease miles per gallon)

Something else: I would like to share that another reason for selecting this type of vehicle is that I am a big fan of the sport compact/import tuner scene (you know, those little cars with the exhaust that sound like a dirt bike) , 2nd only to Aircooled VWs.

My personal preference will be some thing like a Civic, Integra or Focus. I'm looking to spend as less as possible, so, I also have no issues with a Cavalier or Sunfire. I hear that the japanese econo cars are of better quality, unless are read wrong, but I definitely am not choosy at this moment. Whatever my choice I will document my choice and its development in to a high effiency driving machine. Thats the intention. The car I will purchase maybe the cars some of you are already driving or going to be driving. I will hook you guys up with what I learn. Please be patient with me and lets dive in and save some gas!!!

Live Long and Prosper.
