Ecomodding and hypermiling

One way to "go green" is to reduce your fuel useage. The easiest way to do that is by getting a smaller vehicle. However most people cant afford this luxury, so the next best thing to do is to aeromod your current vehicle. Most vehicles are not aerodynamically clean and possess a fairly large amount of aero drag. By installing several easy mods to your vehicle, you can increase your fuel efficiency by 25 to as much as 50 percent.

These mods include:
Wheel well covers
Boat tail
Belly pan
Front air block
Radiator block
Instant fuel economy gauge such as The scangauge or mpguino.

More advanced modifications include a fuel injection cutoff switch, lean burn indicator, solar charged alternator bypass switch, and deep cycle electric assist.

The easiest way to increase your fuel efficiency is to adjust the nut behind the wheel. This can be done with an instant mileage gauge and a few hours driving.

These modifications as well as hypermiling instruction can increase fuel efficiency well over 40% better fuel efficiency.

If you are interested in decreasing your dependance on foreign oil just drop us an email at (remove the 999)

Also we are looking for a 3 or 4 cylinder engine, standard transmission vehicle manufactured after 1996 so that we can perform fuel economy experements and find ways to increase efficiency even further. You can email us at the above email if you have a vehicle you think we would be interested in.
