Maximizing Your Fuel Efficiency

Are you looking for ways to save money at the pump? While buying a more fuel efficient car would do the trick, there are simple things you can do in your current vehicle to ensure that you aren’t overspending on gas. No matter how long you commute each day, the following tips can help maximize your fuel efficiency.

Watch Your Speed

If you’re watching your gas mileage, it’s a good idea to not accelerate rapidly. Accelerating again and again increases your fuel consumption which can cost you a lot of money over time. It’s better to maintain a steady speed, even using cruise control when possible, to ensure that you don’t overuse fuel.

Reduce Excess Weight

Limit unnecessary items in your trunk or the cabin of your vehicle. The extra weight ups your fuel consumption. If you aren’t using it and don’t need to haul it, remove it from your vehicle. Your wallet will thank you at the gas pump.

Properly Inflate Your Tires

Make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended air pressure. Having your psi low makes your vehicle work harder. Check your tire inflation at least once a month to make sure your vehicle isn’t using more gas than it needs to. If you have any questions, ask the experts at our service center in Morgantown.
