Boost Gas Mileage By Changing Your Spark Plugs

It’s amazing just how much keeping your car in tip top condition can help you save money on gas.

For example, did you know you can boost fuel mileage up to 30% by just switching out your old and dirty spark plugs with new ones.

Here’s a cool video worth watching:

And let me throw in a “plug” here for Autolite spark plugs – they’ve been making spark plugs since 1936. Their site has tons of cool info on proper torque and gap of plugs, avoiding pre-ignition, installation tips, and stats on gas savings you can get (I love stats!).

How To Live Without Car – Seriously

In this video, I interview my brother who doesn’t own a car, but still manages to commute to work everyday. He’s not like me and doesn’t work from home.

I decided to record this video since some people were pretty skeptical when I mentioned getting rid of your car as an extreme way to save money on gas.

We cover things like how to commute if you live in a place where it gets cold in the winter (my brother lives in Minnesota) and what kind of bike makes a good commuter bike.

Let me know what you think.
