I’m sure you’ve noticed the price of gasoline is on the rise again. The price for unleaded gas where I live in Southern California is right around $3.00/gallon whereas a little over two months ago (on April 16, 2009) it was “just” $2.25/gallon. In two months it’s gone up about $0.75/gallon…that’s quite an increase.
But what can you do to ensure you aren’t wasting the gas you do buy? Yes, you can do smart things like car-pool to work, use public transportation, limit your trips, walk, ride your bike, etc. And of course if you have an electric car, you don’t need to worry about that. For those who don’t have electric cars, how do you know whether or not you are wasting gas every time you drive your car?
Well, to make it simple, there are hydrocarbons in gasoline and diesel that tend to bundle together. When they do this, oxygen can’t fully reach the fuel and thus it can’t burn completely. This results in exhaust and the partially burnt molecules contribute to pollution and the harmful emissions that come from your car. Basically you are wasting gas and harming the environment by not ensuring you get a more complete burn from your gasoline.
How do you get that more complete burn though? I’m sure there are various ways, but thankfully a good fuel additive like Green Plus™ (created by Biofriendly Corporation) will help the hydrocarbons in your gasoline or diesel to unbundle. The unbundling exposes them more to oxygen and therefore allows them to be able to burn more completely.
The result is not only a better use of the gasoline you are paying for, but you reduce the harmful emissions from your car and get better fuel efficiency as well. It’s a win-win all around. So before you burn a hole in your wallet from rising gas prices, make sure you car in completely burning your gasoline instead.
