Thanks for the useless cliché.

If your Jeep is a daily driver, then it is to your benefit to drive it in a reasonably efficient manner.

Looks like I'll be removing it this weekend. I'd rather not have that happen. Yuck!

Tune up everything, check tire pressure, get off as much extra weight as possible, wish upon shooting star. If wish does not come true first few help a lot.

Hydrolisis Booster. Simple Hydrolisis setup can boost fuel efficiency but then again im using a carborator engine. So its a basic setup.
for newever jeeps you just place the intake tube by driling a hole into your air intake. The richer fuel air will trick your cpu into using less fuel.

If anyone want to learn how to make it it is easy to make.

As a mater of fact here you go.
the attachment for eather attachment is like 20 cents at home depo just a simple attachment valve.

Why don't all cars have this? It's like there's a Big Oil conspiracy or something.

Yeah pretty much.Men in Black are a problem for anyone that interupts Oil Profits. I first tried this with my friends on a Toyota Celica back in 2008 millage for the car went from 30mpg to 50 mpg. Almost double.
The one way valve makes it easy to apply to cars.

After this people tried it on fueling a car completely on hydrolisis.Then these guys have perfected running a truck.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3n0HmpgGz8

No conspiracy needed. Just some high school chemistry. Water is a stable form of hydrogen and oxygen. How do you get around the fact that it takes at least as much energy, if not more energy, to separate the two elements than is achievable from their combustion? There is no net energy gain. Are you performing the electrolysis off of the vehicle's electrical system? Your best bet is to use a renewable energy source like solar or hydro to accomplish the electrolysis.

Like I jokingly asked before, why don't we see anything like this on the road right now?

I believe that video is a known fake, BTW. The guy had auxiliary H and O tanks to supply the fuel his on board electrolysis system could not adequately provide.

I know this is old an old thread but maybe I can contribute. I used to drive a car with an instant mpg gauge that would factor in miles per hour and not just the type that goes strictly off of vacuum. You learn a lot with a gauge like that. Obviously don't drive like you're trying to win a race or something but there's way more to it. When taking off from a stop, if you get on it hard you're wasting fuel but at the same time accelerating too slow will too. Your best mpg will be once you are at your desired speed. Another tip, although not for everyone and may be a safety concern for some and I'm just passing info not recommending, coasting in neautral when possible. There's times I can coast for over a mile and still maintain the speed limit. There is a bit of science to it though. Never get the car below your desired speed or you'll have to accelerate to get there and that'll use more gas. And if the hill is just steep enough to coast a second or two don't bother especially with an auto. From driving like a normal descent driver to taking extreme measures in driving habits I've gotten a car from 20 improved to 24 mpg. Another tip for auto cars is shut it off before you put it in park. Make sure your foot is on the brake! You're only saving a second or two of run time, but without a doubt it will save you some gas.

There is no magic to getting good fuel mileage. The biggest factor is what the vehicle is and driving style.

well, in my xj before i regeared it got 12 mpg. literally all the time. i switched to 4.88's and i get 20 now. i am not nice to it either. i really like to hammer it because its quick now.
i would say its going to take some time before the fuel savings pay for the gears, but that's not why i did it.
