How To Improve Your Truck’s Fuel Economy
Posted on August 06 2021
Tired of spending so much money and time at the gas station? Improving fuel economy isn't as complicated as it sounds. All you need are a couple of mods to your engine and your driving style. Here's how to improve your truck's fuel economy and cut down on fuel expenses.
A Performance Module
This module is an easy and inexpensive way to improve fuel economy. With a performance module, you can access the engine's ECU (engine control unit) and modify air-to-fuel ratio, injection timing, and other parameters that impact fuel economy.
The result is a more powerful and fuel-efficient engine. Modules are cheaper than most mods. They're also something you can install yourself. It takes less than half an hour to achieve better fuel economy. What a deal!
Fuel injectors are responsible for spraying fuel into the intake manifold. Here, the fuel is mixed with air and compressed before being sent to the combustion chamber for combustion. But age, leaks, wear-and-tear, and uncleanliness can hinder the injectors' performance. This can lead to poor fuel economy.
Sometimes, the solution to poor fuel economy is as simple as cleaning the injectors. But there’s also a chance you’ll need to have your injectors repaired or replaced. If you need replacements for your old or worn-down injectors, come and check out Dr. Performance's world record-setting aftermarket diesel fuel injectors.
Are you an aggressive driver? Your driving habits could be wasting fuel. Rapid acceleration and braking, speeding, and excessive idling all dramatically increase fuel consumption. The final way to improve your truck's fuel economy is to start driving more cautiously. This will save you money and time at the gas station. It will also lower your likelihood of an accident.
