Simple Steps To Save Gas Without Driving Less

Simple Steps To Save Gas Without Driving Less

  • Keep your car properly tuned to improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.

  • Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by 3 percent.

  • Replace dirty or clogged air filters on older vehicles to improve gas mileage by as much as 14 percent.

  • Replace dirty spark plugs, which can reduce mileage by two miles per gallon.

  • Change oil regularly and gain another mile per gallon.

  • Check the gas cap. Damaged, loose nbso online casino reviews or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air.

  • Observe the speed limit. Gas mileage decreases rapidly above 60 mph.

  • Avoid excessive idling. Idling gets zero miles per gallon. Warming up the vehicle for one or two minutes is sufficient.

  • Avoid quick starts and stops. Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent in the city.

  • Consolidate trips. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much gas as one longer multi-purpose trip.

  • Don’t haul unneeded items in the trunk. An extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces fuel economy by 1 to 2 percent.

“Some motorists think they are saving money when they put off needed vehicle maintenance,”  “What people don’t realize is that neglecting routine maintenance can end up costing a lot more. Keeping your car running efficiently and modifying your driving behavior is the best way to improve your vehicle’s fuel economy and keep more money in your pocket.”
