The Benefits of an Extang Encore Tonneau Cover

Some of the benefits of the Encore truck bed cover by extang include the fact that it is a folding cover. That itself is a huge benefit. This type of tonno allows very quick and easy access to your cargo area. It is much faster access than a roll up can provide. Roll ups came a long way over the years in regards to sealing systems and the bows in many integrated into the tarp which made getting access to your truck bed much easier and quicker. They still cannot compare to the simplicity of a folding pickup bed cover.

Another benefit of the extang encore tonneau cover is that you are able to open the cover from the cab end as well as the tailgate end. This comes in handy when your cargo ends up near the cab of your truck under the cover. You can also install a cargo management system to hold smaller items such as tool boxes, fuel cans and more near the cab end for easy access. You can different types of cargo management systems that are very inexpensive. Some are made like a net and some are just an adjustable bar. I am sure if you did a search online you would find something to accommodate your needs.

A third advantage the encore bed cover has is the fact that it locks at bot ends. The lock near the cab can be made to accommodate your truck key. This makes life easy when you want to get at those items quickly and still keep them very secure. It just makes leaving your truck alone much easier with valuable tools or other cargo under the tonneau cover. You don't have to eat your dinner in your truck without having the worry of them items being missing when you get back.

We are not done yet. This folding cover happens to be a hard cover which provides much more security for your cargo. This along with the locking system provides you with a piece of mind that roll up covers cannot come close to. Although having a roll up cover keeps things out of sight, out of mind, it is very easy for someone to come along with a box cutter and easily get at those valuable items you have under the tonneau. You just can't get the piece of mind that a locking hard cover can provide.

The last benefit that I want to mention is the fact of how easy it is to remove the cover and put it back on again, even by yourself. In the event that you need a little extra room for a large cargo situation, no problem, just remove the cover and lay it in the back of the truck bed with the cargo if you are not at home. If you are at home, lay it in the garage or in the back yard until you get home. It only takes seconds to accomplish.

If you are interested in this product or many other pickup bed covers you can visit this special Extang Encore tonneau cover page to get prices for your truck or to find plenty of previous customer reviews.

Maximize Your Truck's Fuel Efficiency

Don't you love your diesel truck? Most of us do. We love the torque and the power they offer. With the cost of diesel fuel rising in recent years, here are some ways to maximize your truck's fuel efficiency.

Maintain your truck

Maintaining your truck is the most important thing you can do to improve fuel efficiency. Not only regular maintenance keeps it running well, it also helps your truck to use less diesel. Some shops have the knowledge, experience, and top of the line products to keep your truck running at maximum performance and efficiency. Also here are things you can do yourself to maximize your truck's efficiency.

1. Get regular oil changes

2. Use fuel additives to keep your fuel injectors clean

3. Clean the air filter

4. Make sure your tires are property inflated

5. Drive with the tailgate up (it was once thought the tailgate should be down; however, that is a myth. Keeping the tailgate up creates an air bubble in the truck bed make the truck more aerodynamic.

6. Drive and accelerate slower

Although accelerating slower can remove some of the fun from driving your powerful diesel truck, it saves you fuel. Slow and steady driving saves fuel! The ideal speed when you are driving on a highway is no more than 55 mph for the best fuel economy.

7. Empty the bed

Look in your truck, what do you see? Heavy items like metal tool boxes filled with heavy tools weigh down your vehicle and make you burn more fuel. If these heavy items are not needed on a daily basis, you can remove them from your truck. Only keep what you need in your truck. This small modification can enhance your fuel efficiency.

8. Replace your exhaust system

Replace your truck's existing exhaust system with a high quality exhaust system. This will increase the air flow rate, provide more horsepower, reduce back pressure, and also enhance your truck's fuel efficiency considerably.

9. Use the right tires and check tire pressure often

Tires can affect mileage of the vehicle by 10%. It is important to buy the right tires and maintain proper tire pressure to optimize fuel efficiency.

10. Consolidate your trips

For getting peak performance, it takes about 15 minutes for your truck to reach its ideal operating temperature. When you make small trips, then come back home, wait for a while and then go back out, you are burning fuel in a less than efficient manner. To prevent this, consolidate your trips to use fuel in a more efficient manner.

Better fuel efficiency is something we could all use these days. Use these simple tips to enhance your diesel trucks fuel efficiency.
