Fuel Saving Tips

Do you want to get the most out of each tank of gas? Of course you do! And with these fuel saving tips, you can start increasing your car’s fuel efficiency today.

Lighten the Load

Not only can a cluttered car feel and look unpleasant, but it can also decrease gas mileage. For every extra pound your car has to carry it must work a little harder to accelerate, using more gas than necessary. Clean your car out to improve gas mileage today.

Stay Cool the Right Way

When you’re driving in the summer, you’ve have to stay cool. The best way to do this on the highways is with the air conditioner, which uses less fuel than would be spent with the windows down at high speeds. With low-speed driving, however, driving with the windows down is the more efficient option.

Slow Down

Sure, driving fast can save you time but it will not save you gas. Driving the speed limit is not only safer, but it’s also a great way to save on fuel.

Inflate the Tires

When tires are under-inflated, they’ll need more effort to roll which means more fuel waste. Check the tire pressure on your vehicle’s tires regularly to get the most efficiency.
