How The Car Manufacturers Come Up With More Fuel Thrifty Cars

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

When people buy cars these days the first thing they will look at is the fuel economy of their cars. Thanks to new technology it is not only the hybrids that have become fuel savers but also the average conventional cars. Most cars use new technologies such as turbo charging and direct injection of fuel in their new cars. These technologies have contributed a lot to the fuel economy of most conventional cars.

Aero dynamic design of most cars also contributes a lot to their fuel economy. This is a common feature you will find in hybrids also. Most hybrid cars are made with this shape which will reduce wind resistance to a minimum level. Most of the American car manufacturers concentrate on manufacturing fuel thrifty cars. Therefore it is always not necessary to invest on a hybrid. Instead, you have the option to buy a conventional car that could save fuel to a great extent. Year 2013 is going to see many such automobiles manufactured by U.S. car makers.

The U.S. is trying to reduce its carbon emissions by producing more efficient fuel thrifty cars. This will be the first step towards minimizing carbon emissions by the country. Computer controlled cars also allow the car to utilize the energy stored in the fuel to produce maximum output without wasting any energy in their exhaust gases. While the maximum power of the fuel is being utilized, computers that control transmission of cars make sure that the energy generated by the engine is transmitted to the wheel in the most efficient and economical manner.

Most car manufacturers make their cars lighter by using lighter material instead of the heavy steel. Most cars are built with fiber glass and plastic parts wherever it is practical to use them. Weight is one of the most difficult problems faced by hybrid cars also. Their batteries are the inevitably heavy parts that make them heavy. Presently, experiments are conducted in order to get rid of the heavy batteries by introducing body parts that could be used as batteries. In the event of this effort brings results, the hybrids will be able to do more mileage per gallon of gasoline.

With all these experiments in progress, it is not difficult to win the war against the rising oil prices as more fuel thrifty cars are coming out of production lines. At the same time the carbon emissions also are coming down. Therefore, you could expect a greener future.
