Improving Fuel Economy

Most advanced cars have engines fitted with fuel injection systems rather than the older carburetor system (the similar theory is utilized on a lawn mower tractor, where the engine normally has a carb fitted).

After a while, the fine nozzles and jet tubes within the injectors clog up with deposits in the fuel that build up. Considering that the nozzle is specially designed to provide a specific pattern of fuel spraying into the cylinder, if it’s clogged up, the pattern changes and it becomes less effective and also this could have an actual have an effect on the actual performance as well as overall economy of your auto.

The answer should be to routinely clean the injectors : a simple way to do this is to buy a chemical you pour in the tank of your car that mixes with the gas.

This fuel injector system is generally maintenance-free however, in the long run, especially if you use cheap fuel or don’t service your car regularly, the injectors can clog up. After this build up starts, it’ll clog up quickly.

Once you’ve added the cleaner, drive along as normal and the chemicals will start to dissolve the build up inside the injector jets – after a couple of hours driving you should notice an improvement of performance plus your gasoline overall economy should improve.

Take a look at the guides and reviews of the many different injector and fuel cleaners available on the market.
