Propane Conversion Kits for Cars

Do you really want to cut down on your gasoline usage? Do you still like your car or truck? If the answer is yes, then consider an automobile propane conversion kit. These propane conversion kits allow your car or truck to be dual fueled, allowing you to switch from gasoline to propane at the flick of a switch. Many states have tax credits that can help cover the cost of the conversion. You can have the conversion done at a qualified installer, or do it yourself. Just be sure to learn and follow proper safety precautions for safe use and handling of Liquid Propane.

Liquid Propane is a clean burning alternative to driving an ugly hybrid car. If you live in semi-rural or rural areas, propane may even be more available than gasoline. The flex-fuel approach allows you to easily switch between fuels, based on which is cheaper or available at the time.

Gas Saving Devices – Do they do anything?

The Federal Trade Commission's pamphlet on Gas-Saving devices. Read it before you buy.

"Gas Saving" Products:

Gas prices are up, and so is the volume of advertising for "gas saving" products. When gasoline prices rise, consumers often look for ways to improve fuel efficiency. Although there are practical steps you can take to increase gas mileage, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) warns you to be wary of any gas saving claims for automotive devices or oil and gas additives. Even for the few gas saving products that have been found to work, the savings have been small.

"Gas Saving" Advertising Claims
Be skeptical of the following kinds of advertising claims.
"This gas saving product improves fuel economy by 20 percent."

Claims usually tout savings ranging from 12 to 25 percent. However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has evaluated or tested more than 100 alleged gas saving devices and has not found any product that significantly improves gas mileage. In fact, some "gas-saving" products may damage a car's engine or cause substantial increases in exhaust emissions. The gas-saving products on the market fall into clearly defined categories. Although the EPA has not tested or evaluated every product, it has tried to examine at least one product in each category. See "Devices Tested by EPA" at the end of this brochure for category descriptions and product names.

"After installing your product on my car, I got an extra 4 miles [6.4 kilometers] per gallon [3.8 liters]."

Many ads feature glowing testimonials by satisfied customers. Yet, few consumers have the ability or the equipment to test for precise changes in gas mileage after installing a gas-saving product. Many variables affect fuel consumption, including traffic, road and weather conditions, and the car's condition. For example, one consumer sent a letter to a company praising its "gas-saving" product. At the time the product was installed, however, the consumer also had received a complete engine tune-up - a fact not mentioned in the letter. The entire increase in gas mileage attributed to the "gas-saving" product may well have been the result of the tune-up alone. But from the ad, other consumers could not have known that.

How to Save Gas and Save Money With a Few Simple Checks

By: Scott Siegel

You may not know that your car may not be running as efficiently as it should. If your car is not running at its optimum then you are loosing fuel economy and money. If you invest just a few minutes a month you can prevent that loss.

Many problems with your car can be corrected or identified with some simple things you can do on a regular basis. Not only will you be saving gas by keeping your car running at its optimum, you may also be heading off costly repair bills.

More important than either of these is that you will be keeping your car as safe as it can be. You may prevent a critical failure that could result in an accident.

Generally it is suggested that most maintenance should be left to the professionals. But once each month you can do the following to identify problems that can cost you money and gas down the road: (excuse the pun!)

1. Check tire pressure and look for signs of uneven wear or embedded objects that can cause air leaks. In winter, check tire pressure whenever there is a sharp change in temperature.
