A look at 5 parts that could be making your car or truck thirsty

Millions of drivers waste fuel needlessly every day, without even realizing it. Whether by carrying around extra weight or running a vehicle that’s in need of maintenance, bad fuel mileage often creeps up slowly – swilling away your hard-earned money, and contributing to excessive emissions. If you don’t monitor your vehicle’s fuel consumption regularly, increased fuel consumption can be even harder to detect.

Is your ride running at maximum efficiency, or is it wasting your money and polluting needlessly? If you’re not sure, here’s a look at four parts that can be easily replaced and one that should be removed when not in use, as a starting point, to help ensure your car, SUV or pickup isn’t drinking more than its fair share of fuel.

The Infiniti QX30 is already getting 24/32 mpg, I don't think these fuel saving mods are needed especially in a new vehicle.

Pretty pointless... My Q30 is getting around 45MPG anyway and I drive like a hooligan! If I drove like a Nun I could get way better I suppose, but where's the fun in that?

'Continental Sport Contact' and 'Pirelli Scorpion Verde All-Season' are both tyres that are meant to give way better fuel efficiency than most (and they actually do 235/50/18's which fit the Q30), but at around £130 each I think I'll wait until mine wear down a bit first before fitting them if I'm that desperate to save a few quid.

That said I'll probably end up going for the Good-Year Eagle F1's come replacement time. Had a set on my old Focus, and they grip like no other tyre I have ever had before. Wore out pretty quick though...

On the bright side driving it the way you are, the engine will be broken in quite fast, all that compression being built up and seating the piston rings, something nun's won't be able to do :D

I think at this point everyone has come to realize the whole point of this article was to generate affiliate commission for autoguide. When you start seeing an article that's JUST trying to buy something you really have to start asking questions.


Being on this community i noticed I get more value out of other members than these autoguide posts.
