Fuel Saving Tips

Turbo gas engines

While minimizing accelerator input is one of the best tips to save fuel in any car, pickup, van or powered two or three wheeler of any fuel type, with respect to a vehicle powered by a down-sized gas turbo, this is even more important. The only time these engines save beyond larger NA engines is when the turbo (s) aren't spooling, giving a displacement advantage beyond the bigger engine. Pushing hard on the accelerator spools turbo (s), air and fuel gush in, and you rocket forward, just like a V8, burning the same fuel or worse.
