I am a 17 y/o who just got an '04 ram 1500 5.7L Hemi as my first car. It's a beast and I love it, but it clearly doesn't get very good gas mileage. I've removed some extra weight, filled my tires to the max PSI, and adjusted my driving habits which has already saved me a couple mpgs as it is, but I'm looking to see if there's anything I can swap out or install that will help. All I've found so far thats promising is a k&n performance air filter and short ram/cold air intake system? Can anyone tell me if these are legit and if there are any other aftermarket parts that can help me out? Not expecting any crazy gains but every bit helps.
Buying my first new car! Suggestions?
wixxxrrr posted a topic in General Car DiscussionI am about to buy my first new car. I've owned 3 used cars in the past (only one bought from a dealer). I live in Alaska so all wheel drive is a must. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me for the most fuel efficient buy that will fit these options. AWD sedan, SUV or crossover under $30,000 >30 combined MPG The most promising one I've come across so far is the Subaru XV Crosstrek. Thank you!
I constantly read about the massive amounts of compressed natural gas in the states and yet we have very few CNG cars available to us. If the government would have spent the money they wasted on corn based ethanol on a CNG infrastructure then we would be saving $20-30 dollars or more on a fill up plus not spending our money on home energy instead of purchasing foreign oil. Auto manufacturers can make a duel fuel setup that allows one to switch fuels on the go. CNG tank for short-range and gasoline for extended range. Is there something I am missing or does this make sense?
