Get much better MPG!

  1. 1. Tips for GettingMore Fuel Mileage Jim Gorde Senior Technical Writer, Magnum Fuel Rx
  2. 2. ForewordFuel is a extremely precious commodity and a depleting natural resource which we need to use eresponsibly. This e-book is aimed at helping you get the most out of every drop of gasoline. We, at bookMagnum Fuel Rx, hope we have a solution at hand to help make things a little better and reduce yourneed for gasoline by simply being more careful and attentive towards your vehicle and driving habits. attentiveBecause every drop counts."The more we pour into the big machines the fuel, the pesticides, the herbicides, the fertilizer and machines;chemicals into farming; the more we knock out the mechanism that made it all work in the first place. "- David R. Brower
  3. 3. PrefaceAbout the AuthorJim Gorde is an automobile enthusiast who enjoys writing about cars and motorcycles as much as heenjoys riding and driving them. A keen follower of the automotive industry, Jim devotes most of his timelearning about new cars and technology as and when any information surfaces."Theres never a dull day when you realize how little you know about everything around you. Fromengine and safety technology to new ways of emission control and alternative propulsion systems; thereis always something to learn and you can never know enough."Jim was always fascinated by cars and trucks as a child; learning to ride a motorcycle at the age of 10while enjoying sharing the drivers seat of everything from a light truck to a bulldozer. An Indian by birth,Jim completed his education from the University of Pune pursuing a job in ITeS as higher educationproved to be out of reach at that time. Three years later, his passion for cars resurfaced and he quit his )job to pursue a program in Automobile Engineering where he first laid hands on an engine. He went onto work in the automobile sector with Tata and Volvo before beginning his journey as a writer."Ive had a go at quite a few motorcycles and cars, but there is always so much excitement when I get achance to try something new; something I havent had the chance to test before."A chance to start writing came by in late-2011. He took it, and never looked back."Through my writing, I try to infuse my passion into words which I hope everyone will read them in thesame tone as the one in my mind at the time."
  4. 4. I | Magnum Fuel RxThe world today has reached a stage of awareness where everyone knows that climate change is a veryreal danger. Greenhouse gas emissions have gone up along with emissions of other harmful gases fromthe extensive use of carbon-based fuels. Manufacturers across all sectors are implementing energysaving processes and changes to their products to increase their energy efficiency and reduce theirenvironmental impact. This holds even more relevance in the automotive industry.Leading automobile manufacturers worldwide have made it a priority to deliver energy saving carswhich use fewer resources and make the most of what they consume. Their inputs into research andtechnology have yielded advanced engine and propulsion technology as well as manufacturingprocesses which make the most use of available resources while reducing pollution to a great extent.However, these upgrades come at a cost and with newer models and technologies coming in each year;it isnt really possible for everyone who drives a car to replace or upgrade their vehicles as often.The solution therefore lies in finding ways to change mainstream or existing models for the better.While that may seem far-fetched, there is one product which takes care of all the essentials in a cost-effective yet efficient manner - Magnum Fuel Rx. .Magnum Fuel Rx - Energy Saving At Its BestMagnum Fuel Rx improves overall vehicle performance and efficiency by changing the basic chemicalqualities of the gasoline in the tank; giving you more fuel mileage, more horsepower, better engineresponse and lower emissions. Sounds unbelievable? Heres how it works.How Does Magnum Fuel Rx Work?To understand how Magnum Fuel Rx does what it does, we need to talk about physics. One of thefundamental laws of energy is that it cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be transferred orchanged from one form to another.Everything around us is constructed from hundreds of millions of atoms with their own specificfrequencies binding them together; each with their own potential energy. Fuel is just another compoundwhich contains millions of atoms and molecules.When fuel is ignited in an engine, its potential energy is converted into heat energy. This explosionresults in its transformation into mechanical energy by pushing the piston down which turns the
  5. 5. crankshaft and sends power to the gearbox which finally sends it to the wheels. Thus, the heat energy ofthe fuel is converted into linear energy which ultimately leads to rotational energy.In this process however, a lot of energy losses occur from friction as well as incomplete combustionleading to larger amounts of fuel ending up as waste gases or unburned hydrocarbons. A higher octanegasoline blend would be more efficient but is much more expensive as well. The key to increasing energysavings here would be to optimize how standard gasoline is used.Magnum Fuel Rx is a device which was created after identifying the frequency of gasoline. It consists oftwo small modules - a fuel module and an octane module, which can be easily attached to the fuel tankin a matter of seconds thanks to the adhesive strips. It emits radio frequency waves upwards which alterthe atomic signature of the gasoline present in the tank. This boosts standard 87 octane gasoline withthe qualities of much higher octane gasoline - up to 108 octane - making it far more efficient andallowing it to burn cleaner and more completely. The benefits of this is that the fuel burns moreefficiently allowing more of its potential energy to be utilized and producing fewer waste gases in theprocess. What this basically means is you get more horsepower, better acceleration and a healthier,more responsive engine as well as better fuel consumption and much lower exhaust emissions.With fewer waste gases and little or no unburned fuel exiting the cylinders into the exhaust system, .there is a significant reduction in pollution. This is a tremendous benefit to the catalytic converter - acritical and expensive component of emission control. The job of the catalytic converter is to react withand break down the toxic gases in the exhaust stream. Unburned fuel tends to coat the catalyticconverter over time thereby reducing its effectiveness and its effective life. Modern engines usecomplex sensors, one of which is in the exhaust system to derives information from the catalyticconverter. If the coating of pollutants on the catalytic converter exceeds a certain level; it hampers theentire electronic system in place and drastically increases fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.Again, replacing the catalytic converter is not a low cost affair. With Magnum Fuel Rx installed; theimproved fuel quality eliminates this problem and reduces maintenance costs a great deal while alsoprolonging engine and vehicle life.Of course, some may think that these benefits dont seem very significant in the early stages but ifyoure one who regularly travels a lot; you save time and money with each tank taking you furtherbetween fuel stops. Thats apart from the increased levels of performance you enjoy. In just a few weekstime, the savings add up to a sizeable amount cut out of your fuel and maintenance expenses.
  6. 6. How Is It Different?Magnum Fuel Rx is one of the simplest ways to get the most from your vehicle. It doesnt matter if youhave a motorcycle, a family saloon, a big 4x4 truck or a farm vehicle; if it runs on gasoline, you willbenefit from the improved performance and increased fuel mileage. Magnum Fuel Rx is completely risk-free, doesnt emit any harmful radiation and doesnt really weigh anything as well. Furthermore, itrequires no complex installation procedure, mechanical work or physical modification for your car to useit. This sets it apart from other fuel-saving contraptions like those listed below.Fuel Additives:Fuel additives are simply compounds which need to be added into your fuel tank so that they circulatewith the fuel to go about their job. They claim to improve engine efficiency and reduce fuel consumptionby optimizing engine performance with reduced engine knock and from keeping things cleaner byeliminating any clogs from deposit build up. Again, these are chemicals which claim to do a lot but endup not doing as well as anyone would have hoped, if not hampering performance instead.Magnet Attachments: .Some products claim to magically increase gas mileage by simply clamping on a device to your fuel lines.Lets face it; these products use magnets and aim to affect molecules in fuel to optimize fuel quality. Intruth, while magnetic fields may affect solids and many liquids, fuel molecules are far too small to beaffected. The car designers carefully design every part and mark out its location in the car in order for itto work at its optimum best. Having a device clamped to the fuel lines in the vicinity of other operatingequipment may not only affect fuel delivery for worse, it may also lead to malfunction or failure of othercomponents nearby.Water into Gas:This is a system which has garnered quite a bit of attention in recent time. The system uses a setupwhich relies on a process not unlike electrolysis to break down water into gases. These gases are thensupplemented into the fuel lines and make their way into the engine with the aim of decreasing gasolineuse and running a cooler operating environment. While it seems promising, its only reasonable to statethat modern engines are quite complex themselves and use many sensors preprogrammed to make sureeverything is running as it should be. One of the key criteria to optimum engine function is qualitygasoline. Mixing things up at this level can only spell trouble for the engine let alone any performancegains.
  7. 7. Performance Chips:Chipping is quite a rage with tuners and even seems to catch the attention of those seeking more fueleconomy. The engine ECM is a highly sensitive component and the manufacturer uses the most efficient .program based on the type of car and the application it is intended for. A family hatchback wont betuned for good performance on hills or slopes and a huge off road SUV will not be tuned for cornering at off-roadhigh speeds on the freeway. Yes, they are all capable to a certain extent but beyond that would bepushing the limits of the car. Specialized tuners will reprogram the ECM or even replace it for aconsiderable cost, but these are mostly done for performance gains which further reduce fuel economy. st,Chips then dont really work as fuel saving products. Its all about the user and their driving style. ntDoes It Really Work?Everyone tends to be skeptical towards new products that seem too good to be true. With Magnum Fuel productsRx essentially enabling standard gasoline to provide the qualities and performance of high octanegasoline; you dont have to pay a premium of as much as $0.30 a gallon in the first place. By itself, this yadds up to considerable savings in a rather short time period. The benefits for the engine are even moresignificant.Magnum Fuel Rx has been around for some time now and has already garnered a commendable fanfollowing. Many of those who work at radi stations are using Magnum Fuel Rx. Even a police station is radiousing it on their fleet of vehicles. More people are discovering the performance gains that Magnum FuelRx brings and some have even recorded fuel efficiency improvements of as much as 40%! Whats more, the company is so confident that users will be more than happy with the ats product, that they offering it FREE OF COST for the first 45 days. Buyers who order , theyre Magnum Fuel Rx on the website will only have to pay a $2.99 shipping and handling expense. PayPal has been configured to only charge for the product once 45 days have gone by. So you can now try Magnum Fuel Rx for free and use one of several ways to check how much of an efficiency gain youve achieved. If youre happy, keep it! If for some reason youre not entirely satisfied, you can always return it within 45 days. always Order Magnum Fuel Rx at now!Magnum Fuel Rx is a fuel quality enhancing product. It does NOT affect vehicle warranty. At the same ytime, it has its limitations - it is not a magic mechanic which will help run a vehicle in disrepair; it emitsradio frequency waves upwards of approximately 9 inches so it does not work with stainless steel fuel ktanks. Also, it needs an anti-static protective cover to prevent magnetic fields from interfering with the staticradio frequency waves. Gorilla-tape on top of the modules helps protect them from the elements. tape
  8. 8. II | More MPGFossil fuels are a depleting natural resource. Although they are still being used in a vast number of ways,one of the major applications is in the automobile industry. With fuel prices on the rise globally, fueleconomy is becoming the focus of every car maker today. At the present stage, squeezing the most outof every drop just isnt enough; car makers have taken to downsizing engines and adopted means offorced induction with turbochargers now making their presence felt in many models from iconic brandsworldwide. The prime reason is to cut down gasoline use.Gasoline has been the most popular fuel in the US for decades. While earlier car models had massive V8engines that delivered fuel economy figures reading in gallons per mile rather than miles per gallon, it allstarted to change with the economic downfall. When entrants from other markets like Japan andEurope came into the picture, the whole automobile scene began to change. These were cars from thelike of Honda, Toyota, BMW and Mercedes and were not as large as the home grown American musclecars. These new entrants were smaller not just in size, but also in engine capacity and yet; they were justas fast or even faster and a lot more reliable. But the main reason they took off, apart from their realworld practicality and more manageable road manners, was their fuel economy. .Fuel economy is one of the most important focal points of the automobile industry today and everyautomaker is going all out to make their cars as efficient as possible. Huge amounts are invested inresearch and technology which aims simply to make the most of every drop of fuel. And of course, it issimply because consumers have to bear the brunt of rapidly increasing gas prices.To have a look at how much gas prices have increased, here is a look at current prices worldwide. Theseprices are subject to almost continuous fluctuation with changing exchange rates in tune with the globaleconomic scenario.
  9. 9. Gas Prices Worldwide (as of 2012, 4th quarter)The US has a massive variation in gas prices as you move from county to county and state to state, eastcoast to west coast and everything in between. In New York City, NY, standard gasoline currently costs$3.80 a gallon with premium gasoline costing $4.10 a gallon. In Los Angeles, CA, it costs $3.65 a gallonfor standard gas and $3.85 a gallon for premium. Moving to Denver, CO, the prices are slightly lower at$3.20 a gallon for regular unleaded and $3.50 for premium.In Canada, the price also varies from east to west, with prices in Alberta hovering around C$ 1.03 a literor C$ 3.90 a gallon for standard quality. Premium costs C$ 1.13 a liter or C$ 4.28 a gallon. In Toronto,Ontario, the cost rises to C$ 1.20 a liter (C$ 4.54 a gallon) with premium gas costing C$ 4.85 a gallon.In the United Kingdom, prices have also been steadily on the high side with regular unleaded petrolcosting £1.37 a liter or £6.22 a gallon (Imp) with high octane petrol going for £1.44 a liter or £6.54 agallon (Imp).In India, prices have been steadily rising for the past months and currently, a liter of regular unleaded 87octane petrol costs INR 77, the equivalent of US $5.33 a gallon with premium 91 octane petrol costingINR 86 or US $5.98 a gallon.In Australia, Perth has seen the lowest costs with regular 91 octane petrol costing AU$ 1.39 per literwith premium 95 octane costing AU$ 1.45 and the 98 octane variety costing AU$ 1.50. Prices go up toAU$ 1.62 a liter depending on the location. .Whats The Answer?The answer is more complicated than just getting a new vehicle to replace the old one. A vast majorityof the population cannot afford to just buy a new car, while some of those who can are not willing topart with their old car. The car could be a classic or it could hold sentimental value and can never beparted with. The solution in these situations is rather tricky.Save Gas; Get More MPGFuel economy is a buzzword today and every car maker has adopted some means or the other ofmaximizing fuel efficiency and eking out more miles per gallon. While turbocharged small displacementengines make a lot of sense in this respect; there are loyalists who prefer the feel of a naturallyaspirated engine over a turbocharged unit. This is simply because they feel different - theyre more rev-happy and the power is delivered without any hesitation. Of course, there are several means of gettingthe most economy out of your engine. Fuel economy is a variable that depends on several other variablefactors. Everything from vehicle speed to wind direction can affect it; more so the style of driving. Be tooaggressive on the throttle and the brakes and you pay heavily in fuel. Being easy on the throttle and
  10. 10. brakes gives you not just increased fuel economy but also helps extract the most performance. Here aresome simple tips which will help you achieve better fuel economy.Tire PressureTire pressure may seem like something miniscule but its role in fuel economy must not be ignored.Maintaining the recommended tire pressure is critical to several aspects of vehicle performance - powerdelivery, handling, ride quality and, of course, fuel economy. It helps find the right balance ofperformance and economy. Many fail to realize that the four little contact patches the tires have are theonly things connecting the car to the road! Under inflated tires can improve the grip and road holdingabilities of the car but use up more fuel due to the increased drag. Over inflated tires on the other handcan improve fuel economy but risk heating up much faster and, in the worst case scenario, can evenexplode at consistent high speeds.WeightWeight is another factor which affects fuel consumption for the worse. Unwanted items in the car addto weight. Avoid keeping heavy items or storing things with substantial weight either in the boot orinside the car. Apart from the spare wheel, jack and first-aid kit; all other items are optional and .depending on their importance to your specific journey, should be left out of the car for that particulartrip. If you happen to have a small business and use your car to transport objects, especially heavyobjects, chances are they spend time in the car when they shouldnt. If they are heavy, it could lead tolower fuel economy as the more the weight, the more power the engine needs to move the extra load.CoolingOn hot days, avoid getting into the car and turning the air conditioner on full blast at the lowesttemperature. Leave a few minutes early and lower the windows or open the doors to let the car air itselfout. A few minutes later; get in, close the doors and windows and select an optimum setting for the airconditioner or climate control system. The air conditioner can sap as much as 30% or more of theengines power on the move and significantly increase fuel consumption when you need moreperformance from the engine and put your foot down.MaintenancePeriodic service is more essential than some people realize. Keeping the key functional systems of thecar in check is always a good idea. Check the air intake and air cleaner; check and clean the fuel filter;replace the oil and oil filter and as far as possible, fill up using gasoline from one particular brand or gas
  11. 11. station. Another solution in this situation is to use a product like Magnum Fuel Rx, which gets you highoctane performance and burns cleaner leading to less gasoline use, more horsepower and loweremissions; all of which lead to lower running costs and more engaging performance.Periodic maintenance is a procedure which doesnt happen often but asks for a couple of days a year orless, depending on the condition of your vehicle. A timely check and oil change keeps the engine,transmission and other components running smoother and reduces friction. This prolongs the life of thevehicle and greatly improves efficiency overall.Improve Fuel Efficiency with Better Driving HabitsOur driving habits dictate how much fuel we use or save. Drive with a heavy foot and you will pay theprice with reduced fuel consumption and a heavier gas bill; its that simple. Changing a few basicelements and how you react in certain situations can make a world of a difference to fuel efficiency.A lot of cars sold are equipped with an automatic transmission. The manufacturers do their best toallow the gearbox to select the right gear at the right time as the situation demands. However, there areways the driver can improve fuel efficiency simply by being a little more active when it counts. .When you stop for a red light which you know is going to take longer than 15 seconds or so, shift intoN (neutral) or even P (park). Leaving the selector in D (drive) with your foot on the brake not onlyburns more fuel but also affects the life of the driveline over time. Also, if you have to be stationary formore than a minute, simply turn off the engine.If the road is open or theres not much traffic, use the cruise control. This maintains a steady throttleand helps eke out a little more per gallon than an uncomfortable foot on the throttle pedal can.When on the move, dont just put your foot down to overtake, gradually increase pressure over asecond or two so that the cars onboard computer can adjust for fuel delivery accordingly.In case of a manual transmission, or stick shift, avoid riding the clutch or pushing down the clutch pedalfor too long. Shift up early when youre cruising. If your car has a tachometer or a rev counter, glanceover at it to make sure you shift well before the redline. The torque the engine generates comes in a lotearlier than peak power, so shifting up towards the end of the torque band rather than higher up therevs gives you the best acceleration and maintains momentum.Thus, while there are many recommended ways to improve gas mileage; the most effective are usuallythe simplest - maintaining the engine and the car; checking tire pressure regularly; reducing unwanted
  12. 12. weight from the car; using the air conditioning smartly and turning off the engine when you know thecar is going to be stationary for a while. While those sound easy enough to do, what isnt really easy inmost cases is for you to remember to do them every time. Something may just come up and cause youto push forward a service appointment or just simply forget about it. wardIn their quest for more MPG, many choose fuel additives or other products which claim to radicallyimprove fuel efficiency and reduce gas expenses. Yes, there are several products and devices whic whichclaim to be beneficial and which even guarantee to reduce your gas bill. But in truth, not many of themactually deliver. While wasting money on an ineffective product is bad enough; there are quite a fewproducts which end up doing more harm than good - and its these products that you have to avoidbefore they take an irreparable toll on your cars engine.One device however, which doesnt involve any modification to the engine or any of its components isMagnum Fuel Rx. With the two little modules affixed under the vehicles gas tank, you get all the affixedbenefits of fuel saving, performance and cost without any reason to worry. Whats more, Magnum FuelRx can be installed on a family saloon, 4x4 SUV or truck and even a motorcycle.Magnum Fuel Rx empowers the standard gasoline in your cars gas tank to allow it to function as moreexpensive high octane gasoline; giving you more performance, lower emissions and much more MPG!
  13. 13. III | Less Emissions & Carbon FootprintOver the past few years, the automotive industry has been focused on reducing exhaust emissions withthe looming threat of climate change due to the increased emission of greenhouse gases. Theautomobile sector has grown considerably over the years and with the number of new models andvariants which car makers are bringing out, there is no shortage of choice for buyers. Of late, most ofthese new launches have been small or medium-sized cars and crossovers with efficient engines.Environment friendly cars are the need of the day and auto makers are working hard at making some ofthe most practical solutions. The new range of cars being introduced is astounding and whats more, isthe pace at which manufacturers are developing both revolutionary and evolutionary technologies withan aim to make a difference to the environment for the better.Car makers have begun downsizing their engine range and have adopted forced induction wherepossible. This has happened across the spectrum with the leading names dropping their V10s and V12sin favor of turbocharged V8s, while the popular American brands have taken that step into the moreaffordable and popular segments with turbocharged 3 and 4-cylinder engines replacing their larger 4and 6-cylinder engines. .Carbon FootprintThe carbon footprint concept has received a lot of attention over the past few years and it is indeed avery real threat to our world. The increased emission of greenhouse gases worldwide has got theattention of all manufacturing companies from home appliances to automobile makers. With energyefficiency being the order of the day, every manufacturer is looking for way to reduce their carbonfootprint by adopting more efficient processes as well as making their finished products less damagingto the environment.Car makers have grown very busy indeed having to deal with a number of ways to reduce the carbonfootprint with everything from vehicle construction and paint work to the engine, exhaust system andtires receiving tremendous attention, research and investment on their part.However, when it comes to automobiles; having no carbon footprint is the ultimate challenge. Most carstoday use carbon-based fossil fuels which themselves are a depleting natural resource. Findingalternative means of propulsion is no easy feat. Even making battery-powered cars involves severalprocesses which contribute in no small way in creating a significant carbon footprint. The best wayaround this problem is to find ways to optimize what we already have. That means making morepowerful yet smaller engines which use the same fuel but in far less quantities.
  14. 14. Can A New Car Help?With the sheer number of new cars coming out powered by more efficient engines and featuringadvanced hybrid propulsion technology, you would think it would be an obvious choice to switch fromyour current vehicle to one of these new cars. But in reality, how affordable is it to switch your vehicle inpresent conditions?Although manufacturers have taken several steps and implemented many measures to make their carlines more environment friendly; what really isnt feasible is to get people to trade in their cars fornewer, more efficient models. Yes, there are some great exchange and finance programs available butthey dont really make it a viable option for the mass market.A new battery-powered car comes after the successful completion of several processes involved in itsmanufacture; not just of its body and equipment but also the driveline itself. Batteries and theircomponents are acquired after a series of highly polluting sequences of events from mining for elementsand their transportation across the globe. The emissions involved in this process are higher and moredamaging than the final products will ever be, and even more so than any existing car. Then you have toconsider that your existing car has already gone through all the processes which affect the environmentand everything you do decides if it adds to its carbon footprint or reduces it. Its a much better option to .improve what you drive today and focus on driving it in a better, more economical way.With more affordable cars coming into showrooms, the number of vehicles on the road has gone upexponentially and quite simply, more cars mean more emissions. The key to lower emissions therefore,lies with not just the automobile manufacturers but also the users of these cars. While regularmaintenance and periodic service does contribute no end to optimized performance; there are otheroptions which can yield increased benefits and more fuel mileage.Achieving Lower Emissions with Magnum Fuel RxMagnum Fuel Rx has been created specifically keeping in mind the needs of our world today whileenveloping all the aspects which improve the functioning of a modern vehicle - delivering maximumpower and minimum fuel consumption while keeping emissions as low as possible.In an engine, the chemical energy of the gasoline is converted into heat energy inside the enginescylinders. The explosion caused by the ignition system through the spark plug converts this heat energy
  15. 15. into mechanical energy, pushing the piston down which then turns the crankshaft. The waste gases afterthe explosion exit through the exhaust valves and out through the exhaust system.However, not all of the available energy is entirely utilized in this process. Under normal circumstances;when the spark plug fires, not all of the fuel actually ignites; leading to the waste gases also containingsome unburned fuel or hydrocarbons. These make up a significant portion of exhaust emissions and withmost cars equipped with catalytic converters to break down toxic gases; unburned fuel can cause afailure of the catalytic converter and mar the sensor which informs the engine of the state of the device.This leads to significantly higher fuel consumption and exhaust emissions while also leading to increasedvehicle running costs. Controlling this aspect ensures that all these possibilities are avoided in the firstplace.Higher octane gasoline delivers much better performance but is also much more expensive thanstandard gasoline. Magnum Fuel Rx endows the gasoline in the tank with the qualities of a higher octanevariety of fuel leading to more efficient and complete combustion, which directly results in lower fuelconsumption and far lower exhaust emissions while also resulting in a higher power output and betteracceleration. .Using Magnum Fuel Rx means that over a period of time, your automobile would have traveled furtheron much lesser fuel and generated a lower carbon footprint even while using standard gasoline. Thissaves not just the environment but also your hard earned money by using less fuel and leading toreduced service costs by allowing the engine and another important emission control component, thecatalytic converter, to perform more effectively. Of course, if your automobile is subject to regularservice and maintenance to ensure its running at its best, you can safely assume that your carbonfootprint is as low as it can possibly be.In short, you can turn your old gasoline car into a more environment friendly vehicle with Magnum FuelRx - a simple installation of a small device at a fraction of the cost of a whole new car!
  16. 16. IV | More Horsepower oreHorsepower is a funny thing - the more we have the more we want. In most cases, more horsepower have;means a more expensive car or a combination of some expensive modifications. However in everydaylife, more horsepower isnt really the key; unless youre a regular track day racer of course. So what is it regularabout power and are there any easier ways to get it? The answer is yes!Not all modifications require an excessive amount of time, money and labor. There are several ways youcan maximize your engines potential by simply keeping a check on operating fundamentals. To potentialunderstand these, it helps to understand some definitive principles.Definitions - Horsepower and TorqueEngine output consists of two main aspects - horsepower and torque. Horsepower is the rate at which inan engine works. Torque is the turning force produced by the engine and is actually what is responsiblefor those quick starts and smoking tires. It is the actual work done by the engine and determines howmuch of a load an engine can move at what rate. More horsepower means a higher rate of work. To vemake it simple; torque is responsible for acceleration, while horsepower is the rate of acceleration fast you can go fast or, in other words, how quickly you can get up to speed. .Have you ever noticed how a gasoline engine is always rev-happy? That is, how it tends to pick up happy?engine speed much faster than a diesel engine. Gasoline engines tend to produce more power per literof displacement than a conventional diesel engine of the same displacement but the diesel engine may displacementproduce an equal or even greater amount of torque than the gasoline engine. If youve noticed, allcommercial and heavy vehicles use diesel engines. This is because of the massive low speed torque they low-speedproduce. They will never win any drag race, but, figuratively speaking, will be able to move mountains at eya consistent slow pace.
  17. 17. More HorsepowerTo make your engine produce more horsepower, the key is to keep it in optimum running condition.Heres a checklist:Engine OilAlways use the recommended grade of oil and stick to one brand of fuel once you determine that its thebest for your particular car. This ensures consistency and keeps the engine running smooth and reliable,while also prolonging engine life.Air FlowEnsure that the air intake and air filter are clean. Check the air filter at regular intervals to makeabsolutely sure that it isnt getting blocked, clogged or saturated with dust, dirt or other particulatematter. Like the air intake, the exhaust system is of equal importance. Get your exhaust checked foremissions and clogged components. High fuel consumption and consequential high emissions areindicators of improper combustion or malfunctioning components. You can also consider a high volumeperformance air filter and even a freer flowing exhaust depending on what is street legal and permitted .by local regulations.How Good Are Alternative Solutions?With rising gas prices, the world is at a stage where people will try almost anything to improve gasmileage and reduce their fuel bills. However, another market has been just as burgeoning - thoseseeking higher horsepower and maximum performance. As a result, there has been a huge marketcreated over the past decade and it now includes several products which claim to maximize fuel savings,deliver more power and radically improve gas mileage. Some of them are small and rather inexpensivelike fuel additives while others like compressed natural gas or engine remap chips are more of aninvestment, requiring time, money and a professional set of hands to install.Solutions in the form of alternative fuels are available as well. You can buy a highly efficient moderndiesel car, a hybrid car, an electric car or even a flex-fuel vehicle. However, the cost of replacing yourexisting vehicle with a new vehicle altogether can be considerably high when all you want is to use yourpresent car in a more efficient way or make the most of what it has to offer.
  18. 18. Flex-Fuel Vehicles and E85Flex-fuel vehicles are those which have been designed by the manufacturer to run on ethanol blendedgasoline. E85 is a biofuel comprising 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. The fuel is of a higher octane andoffers increased performance. The efficiency is just as much as gasoline but it ends up using lesser fossilfuel. It is sort of a way to look at the bigger picture - depleting natural resources. Ethanol is largelyobtained from farm produce and aims at reducing our dependence on fossil fuel. However, it is still acarbon-based fuel though its emissions are far cleaner than conventional gasoline.There are manufacturers who offer conversion kits to run any car on E85. The kit includes a modulewhich plugs into your fuel system and basically prepares your engine for the difference in fuelcomposition. However, E85 requires more than just prepping the engine. Ethanol is electricallyconductive. What this means is that the fuel tank and all fuel lines need to be replaced with those madefrom a different material. Fuel injection cycles are of a higher volume - as much as a third higher - andrequire stainless steel fuel lines with or without plastic lining. Components made of bare aluminum,magnesium or rubber cannot be a part of the system. Furthermore, flex-fuel vehicles require the use ofan acid-neutralizing blend of motor oil.Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)While there are some credible choices which help in.beating high gas prices, they may not be well-suitedto everyones taste. One of them is to opt for a CNG or compressed natural gas kit. CNG is a cleaner fuelas compared to conventional gasoline or diesel but its use requires quite a degree of modification to thecar. The equipment needed is quite expensive and needs to be installed by approved service technicians.Furthermore, not all CNG kits are approved by the authorities and the vehicle manufacturer because ifinstalled incorrectly, the damages can be severe. Of course if done right, the benefits are significant andyou end up with lower running costs and lower emissions too.Compressed natural gas may be a clean and environment friendly fuel but comes with its owndisadvantages. The emissions may be cleaner than conventional fuel types but the smell is very distinctand many find it rather unpleasant. Secondly, CNG is sold by weight and not volume. While this changesyour efficiency calculations, it does ends up being more affordable. It also isnt widely available, beingoffered only at select gas stations. Another negative, which for some is a major reason for not choosinga CNG kit for their car is its space requirement. A CNG tank is not small and neither is it light by anystretch of the imagination. The tank is usually installed in the boot or the trunk and takes up most of theluggage space, if not all of it. Furthermore, if you have a station wagon, SUV or truck, the location of thesystem and its components isnt convenient by a long shot. It imposes upon passenger-accessible cargospace which is rarely a safe bet.
  19. 19. While there are options available that promise to "keep your engine clean and deliver maximumperformance", avoid using them if they arent risk-free. Instead, choose something that doesnt have anyphysical impact on the engine and its functions. Magnum Fuel Rx gives you more responsiveperformance, more horsepower and lower emissions with just a simple installation procedure.Thus, more horsepower is easier to attain than what many may think. You just have to go about it in themost effective way.Improve Dynamic PerformanceMaximum horsepower isnt the only thing which will get your car to deliver the drive experience youretruly looking forward to. There are several aspects to performance and some of the key areas lie in thevehicles dynamic abilities.Grip & HandlingThis is a critical aspect of overall performance. The grip levels of the car are hugely dependent on thetires. Tire wear, tread depth and air pressure are necessary checks that must be performed regularly.They’re the only contact you car has with the road after all! The recommended tire pressure will give .you a good balance of grip and fuel economy. Keep the tire pressure low and you’ll have better grip, butsacrifice on fuel economy due to increased drag from the larger contact patch. Too high would meanbetter fuel economy, but also greater risk at high speeds as they would run hotter and the air wouldexpand; even leading to a potential tire burst at sustained high speeds in extreme cases.The suspension system is an equally important part; it is what puts the wheels to the ground to deliverthe power as well as determines the ride quality for the occupants. A stiff setup means betterperformance, grip and cornering abilities but a harder ride for the passengers. On the other hand, keepit soft and you get a pliant ride, but the handling can be quite bouncy and may lead to increased bodyroll around corners compromising vehicle stability to a great extent.Unnecessary weight should also be eliminated. Remove all heavy articles from the boot or the inside ofyour car which you don’t really need for that particular trip. It takes a little effort, but the payout is fargreater.
  20. 20. Drivetrain Performance & ResponseYour drivetrain is collectively the engine and transmission. What good is a potential 500 horsepower ifthe engine is in bad shape and doesn’t put out anything even near that figure? The simplest steps toensure optimized performance from your engine is to adhere to the oil change intervals. Use therecommended oil grade and fill up at fixed gas stations so you keep the quality consistent.Filling up good gasoline ensures better overall performance. Higher octane gasoline burns cleaner,which means better fuel efficiency, more horsepower and lower emissions. However, high octanegasoline will turn out to be quite expensive in the long run; so it’s better to tank up once a while on thepremium brew.This is where Magnum Fuel Rx delivers; giving standard 87 octane gasoline high-octane performance - allthe benefits at a fraction of the cost. .
  21. 21. V | Higher Performance from Increased OctaneGasoline is and always has been a popular fuel for all kinds of vehicles from motorcycles to automobiles.However, gasoline is a fossil fuel and hence is a depleting natural resource. This has led to increasingfuel costs over the years and auto makers, especially automobile manufacturers, are scurrying around tofind more advanced and much more efficient means of powering their cars to achieve maximum fueleconomy without compromising on power and driving pleasure.Some engines require higher octane gasoline to perform at their best, while almost every modernengine would undoubtedly perform better on the premium blend. However, this can be a veryexpensive affair in the long run and unfortunately, few solutions are available. But first, what is higheroctane gasoline and how does it make a difference?Higher Octane GasolineGasoline is like every other composition on the planet – it’s made up of several hundred thousands ofmolecules, which in turn are made up of several atoms. For gasoline, a primary part of performance lies ̭in its resistance to knocking which is defined by characteristic denoted as its octane number. What isknocking, you may ask.In every gasoline engine, when the fuel and air is compressed in the cylinder and ignited by the sparkplug, it explodes to push the piston down and create the power stroke. However, in this process, not allof the mixture of air and fuel is completely burned and some of this fuel spontaneously combustsbecause of the heat present even before the flame caused by the spark plug can actually consume it.This results in early miniscule explosions - knocking, or detonation - which can cause a significantamount of damage to the engine. To counter this phenomenon prevalent in gasoline, or spark-ignitionengines, the fuel is subject to chemical modification to increase its flash point or basically, improve itsoctane rating.Benefits Of Higher Octane GasolineWhat this all ultimately means, is that higher octane gasoline has a specific flash point; that is, it igniteswhen intended and burns cleaner and more efficiently to produce more power and less waste gases andunburned fuel which lead to cleaner emissions and better fuel economy. This not only increases engineperformance, but leads to a longer life for the engine and its sensitive components apart from thecatalytic converter in the exhaust system which is responsible for emission control. Needless to say,these components are expensive and conserving them can mean greater savings.
  22. 22. That being said, the higher octane gasoline itself is still expensive. Magnum Fuel Rx provides a simpleand affordable means of lending regular 87 octane gasoline the performance of higher octane gasoline.Gasoline of 91 to 95 octane is considered premium fuel in several locations worldwide. 98 octane gas isthe preferred fuel for high-performance supercars. With Magnum Fuel Rx at work, the octane rating ofstandard gasoline can go as high as 108!Who Benefits the Most from Magnum Fuel Rx?In the quest for better gas mileage, many car buyers choose to give up their big, heavy gas-guzzlingvehicles in favor of more compact and efficient models. Not only do they provide just as much space asolder large cars, they cost a lot less to run as well.Today, with engine downsizing, car makers across the globe have begun to offer large cars withturbocharged smaller engines. V12 engines have made way for twin-turbo V8 engines while V8s havemade way for turbocharged V6 engines or even 4-cylinder units. How is this happening?Firstly, advances in technology are allowing manufacturers to achieve a higher power output fromsmaller engines. Technologies like turbocharging, twin-stage or sequential turbocharging, superchargingand direct injection have helped use available fuel to its maximum potential. The new breed of compactturbocharged engines use higher compression ratios and thus deliver a much higher specific output, ormore power per liter, than even before. But to operate at their best, they need high quality fuel. 瑠̪Whats Changed?Today, not all smaller engined cars are actually "small cars". As weve come to see, bigger engines arebeing replaced by much smaller units; the best example is how leading carmakers have already replacedtheir range of naturally aspirated six-cylinder engines of 3.0L capacity and above with turbocharged anddirect injected 2.0L inline 4 engines. The list of notable names includes Ford, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover,Chevrolet, Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and Mercedes.With a turbocharged 2.0L engine making 240-odd hp, there was no need for thirsty 6-cylinder enginesany more. And whats more, the list of recipients of these smaller engines include the new Ford Focusand Mondeo, Volvo S60 and S80, Volkswagen Golf GTI and Passat, Audi A4 and A6, BMW 320i, 328i,528i and even the Z4 roadster! The list goes on to include crossover SUVs like the Ford Escape, VolvoXC60, Audi Q5 and the Range Rover Evoque with the Freelander set to follow suit.However, a lot of these modern engines are rather sensitive to fuel quality and using gasoline of too lowan octane rating can lead to problems with the engine over time and in the worst cases, even completeengine failure.
  23. 23. Hybrid cars have been around for a while now but with more people chasing better gas mileage today,theyve only gained ground over conventional-engined cars recently. Their use of an electric motor tosupplement the primary drive from the engine helps provide increased performance when needed.Besides, with the additions of start/stop technology and brake energy recuperation; the batteries areput to extensive use. Even so, the base of all operation is a modern and efficient gas engine.Users of all these vehicles would benefit from Magnum Fuel Rx. With the high compression ratios theseengines run - most of which being about 12.0:1; they require premium fuel as a bare minimum. Thisworks out to be quite expensive over time. It is because of this aspect that you have to consider the highoctane performance you would get from standard gasoline using Magnum Fuel Rx. Undoubtedly, itwould lead to considerable savings in a reasonably short period of time. At the end of the day, unlessyoure using a full-electric car model, gasoline is the fuel you would tank up with and Magnum Fuel Rxwould let you tank up with standard gasoline instead of premium, saving about $0.30 per gallon in theprocess.And it isnt just the big cars. Conventional engined small cars like the Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic andVolkswagen Golf would also benefit from the better gas mileage and overall improved performance thatMagnum Fuel Rx offers. ̪Gas prices have now crossed $4 a gallon in several locations and a lot of people who travel extensivelyon a regular basis are feeling the pinch in their pocket. There are also quite a few products which claimto improve fuel economy and even vehicle performance overall, but their results are questionable andthe last thing anything wants is to end up with compromised performance and added costs.Magnum Fuel Rx is a risk-free product based solely on the principle of harmless radio frequency whichhelps save you considerable amounts while improving vehicle performance overall. Also, being free forthe first 6 weeks with a $2.99 shipping and handling charge means it doesnt really cost anything asmuch as other products you see and also is quickly and very easily installed. Should you try MagnumFuel Rx? Here are the Top 5 beneficiaries of Magnum Fuel Rx:#5 Minivans for FamiliesIf you have an active family and usually travel out together often, chances are you have a minivan orpeople carrier. Vehicles like the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Nissan Quest, Mazda 5 and DodgeCaravan among others use high output gasoline engines which make power at higher engine speeds.
  24. 24. These engines are free-revving and would greatly benefit from the improved combustion that MagnumFuel Rx offers. The engine will run much smoother and provide a better response while reducing exhaustemissions and giving you much more fuel mileage. The lesser the stops you have to make; the moreenjoyable the journey.#4 MotorcyclesWhether you ride a cruiser, tourer, dual purpose motorcycle or a sleek sport bike; its crucial to keep theengine running healthy and in the best shape possible. Regular service is one thing, but ensuring you usethe best possible fuel can do wonders for performance. This is especially true for high-revving sportbikes like the Yamaha V-Max, R and FZ series; the Suzuki GSX series; the Honda CBR or VFR lines and theKawasaki ZX series. Their high-revving engines would make the most of Magnum Fuel Rx on account oftheir extremely high compression ratios. Long distance tourers and cruiser riders would find MagnumFuel Rx just as convenient for their Honda Goldwing, BMW K series, Victory or Harley-Davidson touringmotorcycles simply because more fuel mileage means more distance covered between stops.#3 Classic CarsIf you have a classic car, in all probability, you have absolutely no intention of parting with it. Yes, it has a 珠̧big V8 that drinks gasoline faster than youd like to imagine but you would rather hang on to that carwhile you bring in another less expensive car to use every day. A classic car may date further back thanwhen fuel injection became a norm, and if you have a V6 or V8 running carbs, you will be happy to knowthat Magnum Fuel Rx works just as well with them as with any other car; delivering high octaneperformance for more complete combustion with minimal emissions and energy loss and of course,maximum horsepower!#2 Trucks and SUVsTrucks and SUVs are big, bulky, have large engines and arent very aerodynamic. Four wheel drivevehicles too are usually in the same vein. However, not all of them are bulky SUVs; you can havecrossovers and even saloons which offer all wheel drive. And there lies a big difference - driving all fourwheels consume more fuel and also leads to more frictional losses in terms of power. Most performanceoriented cars and SUVs have limited slip differentials and smart transaxles to ensure the best use ofavailable power and maximum traction. These systems all affect how much fuel is being used with everychange made as the situation demands. If you dont have a diesel engine under the hood, you would bemuch better off with Magnum Fuel Rx. With big trucks and four wheel drive vehicles; you need all theextra miles you can get!
  25. 25. #1 Turbocharged and Supercharged CarsProbably the greatest beneficiaries of Magnum Fuel Rx are vehicles with forced induction; morespecifically modern cars with engines meant to replicate the performance once achieved by much largerengines. With engine downsizing fast becoming the norm across all segments; smaller engines with highcompression ratios and lightweight construction are the future for now. Getting the most out of thoseengines is important for everyday practicality as well as reducing your gas bill and maintenance costs. Anew car isnt affordable to everyone, and if you do have one, the best thing to do would be to take goodcare of it.How Does It Help?A lot of people believe that certain types of vehicles return a higher fuel efficiency. While that may betrue to some extent, it is also true that the way you drive the car affects fuel economy just as much.Thats not to say that a big V8 engined car will return better fuel mileage than a small car; the point isnot all small cars will return over 30 mpg in all conditions. Driving style matters!Big Cars Can Deliver Better Fuel Mileage! ㄰̭Theres nothing stopping big cars from getting more fuel mileage either. While many cars with a big V8engine would be happy with 20 mpg, there are always ways to improve upon that by being more awareabout your driving technique.Every little detail can help you get more miles from every gallon and having higher octane performancekeeps your car or motorcycle engine running smoother for a longer period of time. Magnum Fuel Rxhelps save even more by allowing you to fill up with standard 87 octane gasoline and get all the benefitsof a more expensive high octane blend.
