Generally, making the car more efficient will increase your mileage.joe said:I have a basic stock 2001 mustang convertable and was wondering what I could do to boost my mpgs. I hope to find out what mods will help and if possible how?
Ok, the engine in your car is also used in much larger vehicles, including minivans, meaning that all your accessories were built for a much larger vehicle with more electronics (dvdplayers, etc).joe said:I hear people mentioning them but do not understand how that will help could you explain?
yeah, it's forced on GM v8s. there's a lockout unless you're at WOT.GR40Snake said:You did not say if your car has a manual transmission. If it does your best bet is to shift at the lowest rpm possible and get into top gear as soon as possible. Maybe even start in 2nd. When I'm just cruzing I'm in 5th by 40mph:eyebulge: . I know :sleeping: but I get livable mpg even with 4.10's. A properly maintained vehicle as well as upping the tire pressure, as mentioned above though not to much due to increased center tire wear that will counter the money saved on gas, will help. Road&Track did an article on this and short shifting was the answer.
