gas mileage cars

Ford of breaking a pledge he made in 2000 to increase the fuel mileage of Fords popular lineup of sport utility vehicles by 25 percent by 2005.

I own a 95 gas wagon and over my year-and-a-half experience (around 17k miles) during which I consistently tracked and calculated fuel economy at every fill-up (and there are a LOT of ´em in there, believe me), I have never realized less than 9 mpg for a single tank of gas.

Fuel having a high ´natural´ cetane number obtained through high energy paraffin content may provide better fuel mileage than lower energy fuel or fuel with poor natural burning characteristics plus a cetane improver, if ambient temperatures are adequate to prevent gelling of the high paraffin fuel.

This index is essentially the opposite of the octane rating, where a high octane fuel resists spontaneous ignition, and therefore does not tend to ´knock.´ The cetane number of 100 was arbitrarily assigned to ´cetane´ or n-hexadecane, a straight-chain aliphatic chemical compound that burns very well, in the single-cylinder test diesel engine.

Ford´s broke his pledge to increase fuel mileage was tragic for the environment, but trying to stifle the free speech rights of our citizens isn´t going to solve anything.
