Fuel Economy Information and Tips for Passenger Vehicles
AMSOIL Synthetic Engine Oil Improves Fuel Economy
Fuel Economy AMSOIL synthetic lubricants improve fuel economy by allowing moving parts to move more freely, using less energy and creating less friction than when conventional lubricants are used.

The use of AMSOIL synthetic motor oil, gear lubes and transmission fluids can have a profound impact on fuel economy.

Tips For More Efficient Engine Operation
1. Pay attention to how you drive - Driving sensibly saves gas
Fuel Economy vs SpeedDon't exceed highway speed limits. Use moderate-to-easy acceleration. Gas mileage is negatively affected by fast acceleration and fast deceleration. Use cruise control on highway trips. Maintaining a constant speed helps reduce fuel consumption. Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) wastes gas. It can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and by 5 percent around town. Sensible driving is also safer for you and others, so you may save more than gas money.
Fuel Economy Benefit: 5-33%
2. Good engine maintenance
NGK Spark Plug Cross ReferenceMaintain a properly tuned engine. Dirty spark plugs do not create the maximum spark and cause reduced horsepower and increased emissions. Spark wire set should be changed out per manufacturer's recommendation. A well tuned engine runs more efficiently.
Fuel Economy Benefit: 4%
Engine Filter Master ReferenceCheck & Replace Air Filters Regularly - Your car's air filter keeps impurities from damaging the inside of your engine. Not only will replacing a dirty air filter save gas, it will protect your engine.
Fuel Economy Benefit: up to 10%
3. Limit reliance on air conditioning
Limit use of air conditioning, especially during hot summer days. It may not be as comfortable but can substantially reduce fuel consumption, especially when compressors are being driven by smaller engines.
4. Synthetic lubricants
Switch to Amsoil synthetic motor oil and drivetrain lubricants. Independent tests show savings of two to five percent using AMSOIL synthetic motor oil, gear lubes and ATF.
5. Aerodynamics
Keep windows rolled up at speeds over 40 mph. Open windows when driving over 40 mph can create a wind drag that will lower your mileage. Avoid use of roof rack. Reduce aerodynamic drag and improve your fuel economy by placing items inside the trunk whenever possible. Sun roofs also disturb smooth aerodynamic air flow and reduce mileage. Aerodynamic tailgates for trucks are available on the accessory market.
6. Tire Maintenance
Keep Tires Properly Inflated - You can improve your gas mileage by around 3.3 percent by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.4 percent for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires. Keep tires balanced and rotated regularly. Use radial tires for less friction between tire and road. Keep front-end aligned for better mileage and longer tire life.
Fuel Economy Benefit: up to 3%
7. Avoid Excess weight
Pack light and clean out your trunk. Every 200 pounds of unnecessary weight shaves one mile per gallon off your gas mileage. Do not use your trunk for storage. Many people carry around a bunch of stuff around in their trunks that they aren't using.
8. Minimize Engine Idling
Idling any longer than a minute wastes gas and one minute of idling uses more fuel than restarting your engine. When possible avoid drive-thrus or shut off your engine while waiting. Idling for as little as 10 minutes can waste 5 or 6 miles worth of gas. Limit warm-ups to 30 seconds. Allowing your vehicle to idle excessively wastes gas
9. Plan and combine your trips
Make a list and do all your grocery shopping once a week. Car pool, hike it, bike it or use public transportation if possible. Combine your trips to serve multiple functions.
