Performance exhaust pipes increase power by getting the exhaust gas out of the engine faster. It does this by eliminating the restiction by using larger pipes or less sound absorbing/reflecting material. An analogy is the aerator on the faucet it slows down the output or flow out of the pipe similar to a muffler. Gas mileage is improved by getting more of ...
I am looking @ Page 96 of 1999 Toyota Avalon Owner's Manual. This page shows Dash buttons with labels & some nore. This is what written on that page for ECT. "PWR" (Power) mode for powerful acceleration ECT PWR "PWR" mode indicator light on the instrument panel shows the driving pattern selector button is in "PWR" mode.
Assuming this isn't a daily driver, make sure it is legal locally to burn and start with small doses (2% mix) then add a little more every fill until it doesn't run properly. Then come back and tell us how it went! :) Also, this may foul plugs, ruin O2 sensors and lead to high carbon build-up, but all in the name of progress right?
What does it do? (better performance [and how so?]? better mileage? cooler sounds?) It depends. One of the goals of a performance exhaust is usually to create a tuned system: A tuned exhaust system is an exhaust system for an internal combustion engine which improves its efficiency by using precise geometry to reflect the pressure waves from ...
If I remember correctly you can't generally blend plant-based oils with petrol (gasoline for our US readers) and expect them to burn in the same way, although you can do so with Diesel. This is because petrol is a much lighter oil than Diesel, wheras plant oils, while lighter, are much closer to Diesel. Ethanol is lighter still ( in fact, after methanol, is ...
If you are mixing other fuel , you need make changes in compression ratio and that will depends on the type and amount of the mixed fuel. Other wise your new fuel mixture will not be explode properly then it will emit more carbon and smoke.This will make two problems More polution- this may illeagl Ruin engine life- More carbon will cause more friction for ...
I realize this question has been answered, but keep in mind that any carbureted engine can bog down under throttle and cause a lack of acceleration. If it can be backed off and regain acceleration, then I'd suggest carb tuning. If the engine revs, but no acceleration then it's a slipping clutch.
