Looking to increase fuel efficiency and save on driving costs in 2019? These tips will help you get the most from each tank of gas.
Aggressive driving is a quick way to use more fuel than you need to. In favor of quick acceleration and excessive braking, try coming to stops gradually and aim for even, steady acceleration.
The more a vehicle weighs, the more it has to work to accelerate, which means the more fuel it will use. Clean out your car’s cabin and trunk to reduce weight and use less gas on each drive.
Whenever you idle for more than 10 seconds, you’re using more fuel than you would restarting your vehicle. Kick the habit of idling to save on costs and reduce air pollution.
to the maintenance schedule
Practicing proper vehicle maintenance plays a big part in ensuring that your vehicle is running as efficiently as possible. Take a look at your owner’s manual to see your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule and stick to it carefully.
If your vehicle is riding on tires that are underinflated, it’s not getting the best mileage per tank of gas. Check the air pressure on your vehicle’s tires regularly to ensure that they stay properly inflated.
