Many GPSs most efficient and many stops in order to calculate the route. This feature easily contain more than one visit can save 10-20%. And the places you usually can be very helpful to find the shortest route. My neighbor nine miles to work instead found a way ten miles, and its weekly arrival 10% of the cost saved there.

I wanted to ask if there has been any testing done on these hydrogen gas generators available to retrofit on automobile engines. The claims for increased mileage are impressive, but has any independent testing been done yet? Thank you, Patrick J. Obermeyer

Many GPSs will calculate the most efficient route and order for multiple stops. This feature can easily save 10-20% on a multiple-stop trip. Even finding the shortest route to places you usually go can be very helpful. My neighbor found a way to work that was nine miles rather than ten miles long, and saved 10% of her weekly commuting cost right there.

A second step is to endeavor to operate the car or truck in the most fuel efficient manner.

I heard an interesting story on NPR this morning about how fuel efficiency driving techniques were built into the drivers education program in some areas of Scandinavia. An interesting idea that should be brought to our country.

On long trips ie; 250 miles my gas mileage without the gas saver was at its highest, was 24 mpg. My long trip mpg is 34 mpg
I am now in process of installing another device that uses water. All of the engineering has been laid out and there is a great deal of similarity with two systems. Driving slower helps but the end result should be using no Petroleum based power at all. Only a few of us daredevils are equiped to do the unthinkable which is DO SOMETHING.

Ethanol was and is the biggest mistake ever made.
