Written by Steve Shannon

Is Your Vehicle Anorexic?

Written by Dee Scrip

Symptoms of vehicular anorexia:

·Loss of power (especially noticeable going up hills) ·Decreased mileage per gallon (whether diesel or gasoline) ·Increased environmentally toxic exhaust emissions ·Get up and go has got up and went

If your vehicle is experiencing one or more of these manifestations, then you need to immediately seek help. Your vehicle is starving to death !

But don’t point allrepparttar fingers at yourself ! I know you’ve been faithfully binge-feeding fuel to your vehicle, thinking each time you were pumping it back to health. Butrepparttar 140270 truth is, all automobiles, buses, trucks, boats, trains, etc., are doomed to succumb to vehicular anorexia.

There are several causes for this ravaging disease, one of which is engine combustion. Combustion occurs when fuel combines with oxygen and creates energy. Energy is needed for your vehicle to move.

According torepparttar 140271 Fuel Economy Guide,

“Only about 15% ofrepparttar 140272 energy inrepparttar 140273 fuel you put in your gas tank gets to move your car downrepparttar 140274 road or run useful accessories…”

The remaining 85% ofrepparttar 140275 energy inrepparttar 140276 fuel is lost. However, this is just one cause of vehicular anorexia.

The next biggest culprit is water and sulfur. Water is always present in both gasoline and diesel fuel. A portion comes fromrepparttar 140277 atmosphere, but fuel also attracts water. Sulfur is ever-present in both gasoline and diesel fuel. Sulfuric acid is created by combining water and sulfur. Carbon deposits are formed inside your engine whenrepparttar 140278 sulfuric acid it is not burned off during combustion.

The condition worsens, as unburned carbon in your engine also leaves behind lethal carbon deposits on your spark plugs, valves, etc., or can be forced into your oil. As carbon deposits increasingly obstruct your vehicle’s ability to properly function, anorexic symptoms begin surfacing.

When your vehicle does not function efficiently, it increases toxic exhaust emissions released intorepparttar 140279 environment, which inevitably leads to failed emission test inspections.
