Re: Boosting fuel efficiency

LESS Friction = LESS Wear = GREATER Fuel Economy

 

The uniform diameter of synthetic oil polymers allows them to more easily slide over one another. The resultant reduction in friction shows up as more horsepower, torque, reduced internal engine wear and better fuel economy.

Re: Boosting fuel efficiency

We do the normal stuff, blow out the air filters more often, change the fuel filters frequently, and throttle back and shift up a gear or two if you don't need maximum hp. Also look at your operation from a larger view. Maybe instead of pulling a disc ripper that lugs a tractor and is 16 ft wide, can you do your tillage with a plain old disc on the same tractor that is 30 ft wide and doesn't lug it as much. We stopped using the grain cart in beans whenever possible. If we do use it when it is hard to get to the truck, shut it off if it's waiting to catch a dump. When on the road, coasting is your friend. Let out of it a half mile or so ahead. It'll save brakes too. We utilize a 4wheeler instead of a pickup whenever possible. Maybe even consider upsizing equipment if you are undersized? Save fuel and increase efficiency.
