Gas Prices Going Up? Improve Your MPG to keep Fuel Costs Down!


It’s good for a laugh, and I’m amazed they were able to use the AAA logo, but the fact is that summer time drives up gas prices. If you are looking to save some cash at the pump, stop planting your lead foot on the pedals. Alternatively, you can check out our gas saving products. If you’re a car owner, a power programmer like the DiabloSport Trinity. These tuners work by optimizing your air-fuel ratio for higher efficiency. This directly translates into more horsepower and torque, but with the right driving techniques, you can also increase your fuel economy by up to 20%!

If you own a pickup, a truck bed cover can help reduce drag and increase MPG’s, not to mention the added security and better styling that comes with a tonneau cover.

AutoAnything Weekly Product Review: Save with the Fitch Fuel Catalyst


We know that you’re feeling the pinch from fuel prices.  Even if you drive a hybrid, there’s no escaping the high cost of fuel… that is, unless you are driving a 376 mile per gallon Opel.  So we here at AutoAnything have been working on finding some fuel saving products that really work.  You might have heard or even had experience with fuel additives before, and the truth is, 99% of them don’t do squat.  That’s why we searched for gas saving products that will deliver results and save you money.  While there isn’t a single product out there that is the magic solution to your fuel comsumption problems, there are lots of products that will incrementally improve your fuel economy, especially when used together.  Interestingly enough, most of the products are “performance” related; high flow air filters, cold air intakes, exhaust systems, gas saving chips, and truck bed tonneau covers can improve fuel economy by as little as 1/2 mile per gallon, up to 2-1/2 MPG, depending on your vehicle and driving style.  The problem is that most of these items can be expensive… enter the Fitch Fuel Catalyst.

The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is a bolt-on solution to improving the the fuel you run in your vehicle.  It is NOT an additive: it uses a proprietary metal-alloy that the fuel runs through which improves the octane level, and thus combustability, of standard fuels.  That means you can enjoy more power from your engine when you want it and reap in the fuel savings on highway cruises. And because the fuel burns more efficiently, there is a nice reduction in the amount of emissions and greenhouse gasses produced by your car, truck, or SUV.

On average, the Fitch Fuel Catalyst improves fuel economy by 1-2.5 miles per gallon.  That’s serious savings!  In a vehicle that gets 20 miles per gallon and has a 20 gallon tank, you get an extra 20-45 miles on one tank.  At $4.00/gallon, thats between $4 and $10 of fuel savings on just one tank.  What’s more, cars that require premium fuels can actually run regular unleaded if they have the Fitch Fuel Catalyst installed, which translates into even more savings at the pump.  So if you need to reduce your monthly fuel cost, go check out the Fitch Fuel Catalyst, it’s a great product that will save you money!
