Wat can I do to get better gas milage in my 1989 chevrolet Corvette without droping horsepower or torque?


Make sure the engine is properly tuned. Check tire inflation. Accelerate slowly. Anticipate stops. Probably not what you wanted to hear when your driving a Corvette but there are no magic solutions.

Is it OK to install LPG tank to Nissan A32? Would there be any problems in the future in regards to the engine to some other parts of the car? what are the advantages and disadvantages of installing it?


Virtually any vehicle can be converted to LPG. The key is understanding what is available in your area and what is more cost effective. This will involve a conversion kit. It is not as expensive in fuel injected and Direct injected motors as it is in carburetor motors but there is still considerable cost. You are talking about adding a Pressure tested tank and the cost for that will depend on whether you go natural Gas or Propane. Both are doable. Both require a regulator be installed. Natural Gas typically requires 1300 PSI in the tank where Propane is at a much lower pressure. Both are cleaner burning and theoretically, you should notice I used the word "Theoretically", as both natural gas and Propane are said to have an equivalent Octane level of 104 versus the high octane rating for unleaded or 93 to 97. Because of the higher Octane you should get better mileage but in conversions it doesn't always work out that way. It has been my experience that in factory built LPG vehicle to experience a higher mileage rating but that is not always so in Conversions. You also have to consider that unlike Gas powered vehicles in most states you are required to get a registration sticker that is sold to at a cost of your estimated usage because you are taxed once for the gas instead of by the gallon. You have to estimate how many gallons of LP gas you are going to use and pay the taxes up front instead of as you use it. If you choose propane and have Propane used in your house you can have what is called a wet line installed in that tank and be able to fill up at home, this is not an option for the Natural Gas conversion. At first glance that 73 cent a gallon for running propane is very tempting but when you add to it the upfront cost of taxes every year that actually ends up running some $4 a gallon making it more expensive that regular gas powered vehicles. I looked into all of this when I considered opening a conversion business a few years ago and got the shock of my life. Then working for a company that used conversion vehicles that ran on LP gas found out that on LP, in the conversions anyway, they were prone to vapor locks and slow acceleration or hesitation at acceleration. It wasn't so bad in the vehicles that started out from the factory on LP but those were still problems. Add to that that there was not a marked improvement in mileage, in fact there was a loss in most cases, it is not cost effective to make this conversion.

No problems, just want to know what grade of gas to use (reg., medium,or premium)? Does it matter, will it affect engines performance? Just bought a used 1995 525i bmw sedan, automatic . Thanks


Just bought a 95 525i. It is not exactly overpowered in the horsepower department. I was talking about that yesterday with a BMW mechanic. He said to use "the good stuff" i.e. 93- yes it costs more, but your MPG will be somewhat higher, and your engine should be a little more energetic. He said to stay away from the warehouse gas places- Costco, Sams, and Sheetz. They tend to have a high percentage of ethanol in their gas, which will eventually destroy your catalytic converter... as time goes by, ethanol is getting harder to avoid. The gas station should have a sign saying if their gas has ethanol, and what percentage. You can use it if you have to, but don't make a habit out of it.

Consumes too much fuel


Are you the only driver..? Different drivers realize different MPG. You might try a fuel injection cleaner...also...try running a higher octane gas. This sounds funny...but...higher octane fuels produce better running engines/produce more horsepower...effectively requiring less fuel to do the same thing.

Horsepower of 4.9L and how to increase its Horsepower


go to cliffordperformance.com. read the info and decide what your budget will allow you to buy. if you dont want to tear the engine down, i would suggest that you go on e-bay and get your self a 4barrel intake and a 390cfm carb. add a set of headers and your engine will breathe better,run faster and believe it or not, get better gas mileage than your getting now.
