How to Improve Gas Mileage

Because every drop counts, there are some tips to improve your gas mileage  

1. Maintain a steady speed: Consistency is key when it comes to conserving fuel. Try to maintain a constant speed as much as possible, and avoid sudden starts and stops.

2. Check tire pressure: Underinflated tires can decrease fuel efficiency, so make sure your tires are properly inflated.

3. Keep your vehicle well maintained: Regular tune-ups, oil changes, and air filter replacements can make a big difference in fuel efficiency.

4. Use the recommended fuel: Check the owner’s manual to see the recommended fuel for your vehicle and use it consistently.

5. Don’t overload your vehicle: Excess weight will decrease fuel efficiency, so avoid carrying unnecessary items in your car.

6. Use cruise control: When driving on the highway, use cruise control to help maintain a consistent speed and conserve fuel.

7. Plan your route: Avoid heavy traffic and congested areas if possible, and try to take the most direct route to your destination.

8. Turn off the engine: If you’re idling for more than a minute or two, turn off the engine to conserve fuel.

9. Pay attention to aerodynamics: Avoid driving with windows and sunroofs open, as this can decrease aerodynamics and increase fuel consumption.

10. Combine trips: Plan your errands so you can make multiple stops in a single trip, rather than making multiple trips throughout the day.
