Default naive ( Re: How you can save fuel and the environment )

| Using a different motor oil can lower your gasoline mileage
Only if oil is thicker / coarser than recommended. Synthetic is
thinner & smoother than mineral, if fullerene is present then even
smoother.

| Keep tires properly inflated and aligned
Use nitrogen & soft tyres to reduce rolling resistance. For FWD
cars, set toe-in to 0.

| Get regular engine tune-ups and car maintenance checks
Car makers want to make 1 model for every climate, this is
ridiculous ; what is efficient in cold climate will be too hot in warm
climate, & vice versa, even an alternator good for a cold climate
will be too hot in a warm climate ( output amps will be too few,
battery has low state of charge, sparks small, combustion slow =
low torque, loud noise, high idle rpm, less mpg ).
Alternators for warm / hot climate should have their 6 diodes
located away from engine to help air cooling & avoid heating up
coils ( & engine, battery ) etc i.e. rectification to dc should be done
away from engine, with heatsinks.
Jap cars ( no air vent usually ) temprtre gauges usually have no
calibration, to hide overheating ( well above optimal ) of engine in
warm climate. Symptom is torque drops after engine heats up.

What bullshit, I own two Jap cars, a Nissan and a Toyota, both function
equally well in all temperatures.
