Fuel efficiency is a key component to keeping any vehicle long term. When buying a car, the cost of fuel per year and gas mileage are things to consider. Many who have owned cars over a long period, never consider improving fuel efficiency with a new exhaust system. Just like those shopping for new or newer used vehicles, and more fuel-efficient driving options, there are fuel efficiency options for long-term cars owners as well.
There are many benefits to improving your car’s exhaust. The technicians at Mufflers 4 Less are the leading professionals in car exhaust systems in Hollywood, Florida. In a more environmentally conscious age, they do their part by improving your car’s fuel efficiency system.
Factory exhaust systems, those that come standard in mass-produced vehicles, carry restrictive exhausts. They are the exhaust systems that are quieter and are lower cost. Achieving a quieter exhaust system, however, comes at a price. Thus, when a factory exhaust is replaced with a less restricted exhaust, it improves efficiency. These are aftermarket exhausts or “cat-back exhaust system”.
The improvement of efficiency or boost in power was always in the exhaust system. A key thing to understand is nothing was added to generate this power. The power generated by the aftermarket muffler, though accomplished via installing a better exhaust was always present.
What does fuel efficiency mean?
The best way to explain fuel efficiency is by giving an example. The math is rather straightforward. A typical exhaust improves a vehicle’s power output by 2 to 5%. Let us say your vehicle get roughly 16 miles per gallon and by adding a new exhaust system sees a gain in fuel economy of approximately 3%. 3% of 16 miles per gallon equals .48 miles per gallon. If you drive the national average of 15,000 miles per year and the price of gas sits at an even $3, you save about $85 for every 15,000 miles you drive.
To state it plainly, a 3% increase of power translates to 3% less fuel used to achieve the same power output.
Performance Exhaust Systems
A performance exhaust frees up power from the engine. This creates a more efficient path for the release of gases. The downside, as in most car repair cases, is cost.
