How to Save Fuel Efficient –¬†With the rise in fuel prices, Brazilians are increasingly looking for alternatives to reduce the consumption of cars. Here are some steps that can help you achieve this. Calibrated tires: Tires with incorrect calibration directly influence the consumption of the car. Tire calibration should be performed every week according to the car manual, incorrect calibration can influence the consumption of the car by 10%. Candles: Candles are responsible for generating energy in the combustion chamber to start burning the air/fuel mixture. If they are bad, the fuel burn does not happen properly, which directly reflects the increased consumption of the car. Air Filters: Filters must be changed according to the vehicle’s manual, dirty or clogged filters hinder the air intake inside the combustion chamber, which will result in an irregular fuel burn, thus increasing fuel consumption. Additive gasoline: The additive gas has in its composition detergents and dispersants that fight the accumulation of dirt in the internal parts of the engine. The detergent causes the dirt to come off and the dispersant causes it to be broken to be eliminated by the combustion system. Symptoms of dirt inside the engine are difficulty starting cold, slow…

Fuel with Alcohol or Gasoline? The bi-fuel car has come to have the freedom to choose which fuel we will use or try to economize. But as soon as we get to the fuel station we have the following question: Fill with alcohol or gasoline? We can stock up on alcohol because it is cheaper or fuel with gas because the consumption of the car will be lower. But are we really going out in profit? Are we really saving money? When we are going to make this choice, we must take into account that the autonomy of the vehicle with alcohol engine is, on average, 30% lower than that of the vehicle with a gasoline engine, that is, the percentage reflects the lower alcohol yield, where makes the vehicle run fewer miles than gasoline with a same volume of fuel. Example: If at the gas station the price per liter of alcohol is R $ 1,499 and the value of gasoline R $ 2.259 is more advantageous to supply the vehicle with alcohol since it is 33% cheaper than gasoline. So the tip always takes into account the value of the fuel, not supply the flex vehicle with alcohol…
