Good fuel economy, performance and low emissions are all effects of an efficiently-operating engine. Keep your engine running right! If your car requires major engine work, it may be more economical to have your engine rebuilt rather than buying a different car. Cooling system failure is a leading cause of vehicle breakdowns. Just like regular gasoline engines, diesel engines require regular maintenance that involves changing the lubricating oil that keeps your vehicle’s parts running smoothly. If you can change the oil on a gasoline engine, you can change the oil on a diesel — just be aware of a few differences. Because diesel fuel is sometimes called [ ].

How Engine Oil Affects Your Fuel Efficiency. You may wonder how engine oil even affects fuel usage. The thicker the viscosity of your engine oil, the harder the engine has to work to push the oil throughout the engine components. Your vehicle pulls on your fuel.
The point is that reputable engine oils are already tested to bring out the best in your engine. Adding chemicals into the oil can adversely affect the overall performance of the oil, so it is always best to make sure you choose the right type of oil additive for your vehicle.
The engine oil is your car engine’s lifeblood. Emissions Performance; Fuel Economy; Emissions Performance. The properties of engine oils can affect engine emissions in a number of ways. As discussed under Exhaust Particulate Matter, heavy hydrocarbons derived from the engine oil are a known significant contributor to the organic fraction (OF) or organic carbon (OC) portion of diesel particulates .

Use. Motor oil is a lubricant used in internal combustion engines, which power cars, motorcycles, lawnmowers, engine-generators, and many other engines, there are parts which move against each other, and the friction wastes otherwise useful power by converting the kinetic energy to also wears away those parts, which could lead to lower efficiency and degradation of the engine.

An engine that works too hard will end up having more problems down the road as well as a shorter life span. According to Kelley Blue Book, car valuation increases at resale time if regular maintenance has been upheld. bine electric drivetrains with an engine or other power source; and fuel cell vehi-cles.
OTA has focused on mass-market vehicles, particularly on the mid-size family car with performance comparable to those available to consumers today. Based on our analysis, OTA is. Introduction. The climate change problems caused by CO 2 emissions and fossil fuel depletion have become a main issue in many countries.
It was reported that about 30% of total energy is consumed in the transportation sector and this contributed to the harmful effects (Rakha et al., ).Given these circumstances, the need to reduce CO 2 emissions by improving vehicle fuel efficiency has Cited by: There are several ways to improve fuel economy from driving with a light foot to over-inflating tyres but few would know that picking the right engine oil.
Before proceeding, it is necessary to define the terms fuel economy and fuel consumption; these two terms are widely used, but very often interchangeably and incorrectly, which can generate confusion and incorrect interpretations.
Fuel economy is a measure of how far a vehicle will travel with a gallon of fuel; it is expressed in miles per gallon. This is a popular measure used for a long. I recently ran a 5k mile oil change interval (OCI) using RLI 0w BioSYN oil in my Civic; mainly to track the oils ability to control fuel dilution and/or decrease engine wear vice seeing if it would increase my MPG.

The results showed that lowering the engine oil viscosity provides favorable prospects for enhancing fuel economy. Engine reliability was investigated by confirming the effects on sliding wear at high temperature, which is the greatest. Vehicle damage. Driving a compromised or inefficiently functioning vehicle can result in significant damage, exacerbate existing problems and create new problems.
Poor fuel economy. Let?s be honest, fuel is far from cheap and we all want to get as much mileage from the fuel we purchase as possible. There are many areas fleet mangers and owners can focus on to maximize fuel efficiency.
From improving driver behavior—to reducing engine idling and speed, ensuring proper tire pressure—to lowering vehicle weight, improving aerodynamics—to leveraging a telematics solution—all can help fleets save at the pump and positively impact the bottom line.
As these properties are lost the engine will run hotter and less efficiently, which negatively effects gas mileage. Sludge Build-Up. Once oil breaks down, it begins to leave deposits on the interior surfaces of the engine.
These deposits are commonly referred to as "sludge" or "scaling." Engine sludge has a variety of negative effects on an engine.
BETTER FUEL ECONOMY When observed under normal operating temperatures (70 to °C/ to °F), the HTHS viscosity of engine oil is inversely proportional to fuel economy performance.
According to many published papers, a lower HTHS potentially improves fuel economy at a rate of % to % for each cP reduction in HTHS, depending on theFile Size: 1MB. Fuel economy of the gasoline engine: fuel, lubricant, and other effects David Richard Blackmore, Alun Thomas, W.

With the advent of gasoline direct injection (GDI), thin-film, long-life lubricants and ethanol- blended fuels, engineers have produced incredible leaps in the lubricant and fuel technologies used in today’s vehicles.
But just one mistake in adding the wrong grade of engine oil or lubricant can damage an engine, transmission, transfer case or differential very quickly. Effect of Fuel Adulteration on Engine Crankcase Dilution Journal of Mechanical Engineering, Vol.

However, the US EPA notes that running the air conditioner in very hot weather can increase your fuel consumption by up to 25%, and that the effect of using the AC in a hybrid or electric vehicle can be even greater.
The best defense against decreasing fuel economy is actually pretty simple – use your windows at lower speeds, and turn on the /5(11). Fuel economy improvements which achieve this through the development of advanced engine lubricants are very attractive to vehicle manufacturers due to their favorable cost-benefit ratio.
Fuel saving devices are sold on the aftermarket with claims to improve the fuel economy and/or the exhaust emissions of any purport to optimize ignition, air flow, or fuel flow in some way. An early example of such a device sold with difficult-to-justify claims is the mpg ‑US ( L/ km) carburetor designed by Canadian inventor Charles Nelson Pogue.
That dirt will get into the engine oil, and the abrasive effects can damage internal engine parts. The EPA found no significant loss of fuel economy from a clogged air filter but did find in a. Don’t worry though, I took all the hard work out of your quest and put together these 6 little known facts that can boost your vehicle’s fuel economy today.
Old Engine Oil = Lower Fuel Economy. I asked a few people around the office this question: Does the age or quality of your engine oil have an impact on your fuel economy?Author: Lafontaine Automotive Group.
Variable displacement oil pumps are seeing increased use in vehicles because of their benefits to fuel economy. They deliver oil to the engine at flow rates and pressures needed at the time, reducing parasitic energy loss. Researchers recently completed a study about how variable displacement oil pumps thermally impact the rest of the engine.

Caution: If the vehicle is continually driven with this light on, the emission controls might not work as well, the vehicle fuel economy might not be as good, and the engine might not run as smoothly.
This could lead to costly repairs that might not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Adding extra weight on your car also affects fuel economy.
