Gas Mileage From Diesel Fuel

By: Hispanic
It is very important to know the fuel mileage of a car. Fuel mileage is how much fuel it takes to power a car or truck to drive a certain distance. Fuel mileage is also sometimes called fuel economy. It determines how much gas you will use up every time you drive a particular distance. It's important to take note of the fuel mileage of your vehicle because the more miles you can go on a certain amount of fuel, the more money you save on refueling your vehicle.

However, fuel mileage and fuel economy should be differentiated from fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency is how efficient an engine is in terms of fuel to energy conversion. Just about all cars nowadays have increased fuel efficiency because of technological developments. Fuel efficiency does not indicate how far a car can go, though, because even if a car's engine is fuel efficient, it may still have bad fuel mileage because the car is big and heavy. The best example of this is in developed countries like the United States, where a large number of people drive large cars and trucks like Escalades and Hummers.

With the increasing costs of fuel, fuel mileage and fuel economy are terms that people are getting more and more familiar with. This is why people are increasingly turning to the use of vehicles with diesel engines. These vehicles are generally more fuel efficient because they use diesel fuel. A tank of diesel fuel allows a vehicle to go farther than a tank of gasoline does. In addition, diesel fuel is usually less costly, although there are taxes and/or standards imposed on diesel fuels in certain areas that make it cost more. Nevertheless, diesel continues to gain popularity because of its efficiency and better fuel economy.

Diesel fuel is becoming more and more popular because of its better fuel mileage. The next time you buy a car, choose a model with a diesel engine, especially if diesel costs less than gasoline in your area. Lower cost or not, using diesel fuel still guarantees you better results because you can cover more miles on the same amount of fuel.
