Gas Saving Tips

At gas stations on Interstate 80 near Kearney or North Platte gasoline is advertised at close to 2-dollars per gallon. With the rising price, fuel-saving products you can buy and install on your engine are becoming more popular. One device is called the K and N. It costs about 30 dollars. It's an air filter that sits on top of your carburetor. It has a one million mile warranty. There's also the Helix Power Tower. It costs around 130 dollars and can increase your gas mileage from 4 to 10 percent.

Some additional tips to help you get better gas mileage: stay within the speed limit. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. Also remove excess weight from your trunk. An extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces a typical car's fuel economy by one to two percent. Keep your engine tuned and keep your tires properly inflated. Under inflated tires cause fuel consumption to increase by 6 percent. And always be sure to change your oil.
