Ways to save some gas costs with your Z....(tested with an 87 na)



* new plugs...wires...dist cap & rotor.

* advanced igntion?

* check gas cap to see if it holds pressure...check EVAP system (charcoal can & lines)...my Z gets better mpg thru the first 3-4 gallons..running on vapor?

* use synthetic oils in the engine...trans...diff...maybe 3% gain in mileage?

* new O2 sensor (if the old one isn't up to snuff)...possible 10-12% gain in mileage...found this out by replacing it.

* a non functioning EGR might cost you 10% in mileage...found this out by disabling mine.

* tire pressure up to max (be SURE and check for good traction)....maybe a 3-5% gain?

* drive like your grandma.....

* for those with a sense of adventure....

I'd tell the people that run the site...if I thought they'd give a ****. I don't know them. Probably worth your while though.

Or...you can lead a horse to water...but you can't make it drink....unless you hit it over the head with a rock and kick it in the ass? ;-)
