It seems like nowadays, gas prices are always on the rise. We understand it may be frustrating every time you have to fill up, but there are things you can do to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency to help you save money on gas. While it may be nice to swap out your car for an electric one, you don’t have to.
Here are some ways how to improve your vehicle’s gas mileage:
- Stay on top of your routine maintenance and service - Maintenance is a preventative measure that has been proven to make a difference in the longevity of many vehicles. It also helps ensure that your vehicle runs efficiently and smoothly.
- Drive smoothly - It would be best for you to not constantly go between hitting the gas or brakes when driving. Plus, you should press lightly and not too harshly. To achieve the best mileage, you should ease into slowing down and speeding up.
- Avoid heavy traffic when possible - As mentioned, constant stop-and-go traffic wastes more gas than when your car goes at a steady pace. Avoid high trafficked areas to get the best fuel efficiency.
- Remove heavy-weight items from your vehicle - When a car is weighed down by unnecessary items, it can strain your engine and other car parts. As a result, your car burns more gas. Therefore, you should make a good habit of cleaning out your car whenever possible.
