Increasing mpg...

Hi,

To increase the mpg I wonder if anybody is using a device such as special air filters or anykind of hardware? I saw some websites regarding to increase mpg and performance at the same time, but I have doubts if they will work or not? Those equipments should be based on the assumption that efficiency is less than 1.0. My undersanding is that in order to increase the mpg, we should decrease the performance. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help in advance

Re: Increasing mpg...

I'm not sure what these other devices are ,or whether they work but there are things like underdrive pulleys which will improve power and save fuel by taking load off the engine from driveing the accessories slower. Another way would be to put in a different rear end ratio. This will make acceleration slower but at cruising speeds would have the engine doing less rev's for distance covered and saving fuel. A combination of these two could make a huge difference.

Re: Increasing mpg...

The web sites I visted are:

http://www.fuelvaporizer.biz/ eg. click on Magnetic Air Intake Enhancer.
I saw a smilar magnetic ring that you can put it between injection system and fuel pipe, which some people claim that this will power the fuel going to the injectors in the engine. Between %10-%30 savings...

http://www.turbonator.com/ This is also very interesting!

I wonder if anyone has tested those kind of equipment.

I just wonder if there are such ways to improve the mpg and performance at the same time why Ford doesn't use such technology? Or why I am not using at least?

Big Block Ford, thanks for your comments. In fact the point that you mention is more logical for me since there should be always a "tread off", performance or fuel economy. But you will see that those sites claims that they improve both. Then I ask my self if the engine that I am using is not an efficient one?
