I happened upon a picture of the forthcoming 370Z. Notice the NISMO kit on it! I’m unsure if this is an actual photograph or an artist rendition. Like everything else I’m sure this is just the beginning and we’ll be seeing more details in the future.

Top 20 Tips For Increasing Fuel Economy

Found on Michigan.Org

  1. Combine trips for shopping and errands
  2. Avoid unnecessary trips. Use the telephone or e-mail to communicate
  3. When possible, don’t drive-walk or ride a bike to your destination
  4. If possible, join a carpool or use public transit to and from work or school
  5. don’t idle the car for more than one minute
  6. Drive the speed limit, or below, for better mileage
  7. Overdrive gears improve the fuel economy of your car during highway driving
  8. Avoid sudden bursts of speed, tailgating and pumping the accelerator pedal. Gradual starts and stops result in less fuel use and less wear and tear
  9. Out on the open highway, keep windows rolled up to reduce drag
  10. Using a vehicle’s air conditioner on a hot summer day can decrease mileage. Use the flow-through ventilation on your car instead of the air conditioner
  11. Travel during off-peak hours when possible. Anticipating traffic conditions ahead and not tailgating can improve gas mileage by 5 to 10 percent. This driving strategy is safer, and reduces wear on tires and brakes
  12. Take the shortest rout with the best roads
  13. Use the cruise control – – it can save fuel by maintaining a steady speed
  14. Keep tires at the recommended air pressure
  15. Keep your car engine properly tuned. Improve mileage by up to 40 percent by replacing a faulty oxygen sensor
  16. Check and replace air filters regularly. Replacing a clogged or dirty air filter can improve your car’s gas mileage by as much as 10 percent, and a clean filter keeps impurities from damaging the inside of your engine
  17. If you own more than one vehicle, drive the one that gets better gas mileage
  18. Excess weight uses more fuel. Remove unnecessary items from inside the vehicle, trunk or truck bed. Remove bicycle and ski racks when not in use
  19. Use the lowest octane gasoline recommended for your vehicle by the manufacturer
  20. When buying, leasing, or renting a new car, make fuel efficiency a priority. Don’t buy a bigger engine or vehicle than you need
