Gas Saving Tips
With oil costs on the rise again, drivers are becoming more sensitive to prices at the pump. The following tips will help keep fuel costs low and your vehicle running longer.
Observe speed limits
Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60mph.
Avoid Excessive idling
Idling gets zero miles per gallon.
Using cruise control
Use this feature on the highway to help maintain constant speed and save gas.
Planning & combining trips
Combining errands into one trip saves time and money
Try to stagger your work hours to avoid peak rush hours, you will spend less time sitting in traffic and consume less fuel.
Unless the attached roof rack or bike rack is necessary, remove it when it isn’t being used. Those added features add up to a 5% decrease in fuel economy.
Remove extra weight from your trunk. Those golf clubs and books to be donated are eating up your gas.
Refuel in the early morning
When it’s colder, gasoline’s molecular structure will condense. Since you are paying by volume not weight, use science in your favor.
