- Be Gentle With The Pedals
To improve your gas mileage, be careful with your gas and brake pedals. If you accelerate too fast or slam on the brakes, your car has to work harder than it should. This results in it using up extra gas.
- Avoid Traffic
Sitting in stop and go traffic wastes a lot of gas. If it's possible, try to avoid it as best you can. You can leave your house earlier that usual to beat traffic, you can spend more time away from the city, whatever you can do to avoid it, do it!
- Get The Right Gas
If your car should be taking unleaded gasoline, don't put premium gasoline in your car and vise versa. Put in the correct gas that is recommended for your vehicle. It will save you money in the long run.
- Avoid Idling
Don't turn on your car just to sit there and idle. If you are picking someone up from school, turn off your engine. Then you won't be wasting unnecessary amounts of gas.
- Don't Overload
People like to overload their cars and fit as much stuff in them as they can. This is especially common with pickup trucks. If your car can't handle the weight, it will have to work harder to put your car in motion, and eventually wasting gas.
- Maintain Your Tires
If your tires are maintained properly, they won't be using as much gas. When your tires don't have enough air pressure in them, its harder on your vehicle. So fill up those tires!
- Fuel up in The Morning
If you fuel up in the morning, the gas will be more dense, meaning you get more gas for less. However, if you fill up your car later in the day, the gas will expand a little. To get more bang for your buck, try to only get gas in the morning!
- Use The Right Oil
Make sure you are using the right oil for your car. If you are unsure, at your next auto repair service, just ask us for our oil recommendations. The wrong oil can lower your gas milage significantly.
- Use Cruise Control
Cruise control is a great way to improve your gas mileage. You won't have to touch the gas or brake pedal for a while, so you will be saving your gas! If you plan on driving for long periods of time, this is a great option for you.
- Seal Your Gas Cap
And finally, this may seem a little silly, but people do forget and it is a factor that will lower your gas mileage! Make sure, when you leave the gas station, that you remembered to seal your gas cap. Forgetting this wastes a lot of gas, so save yourself some money!
