Four Easy Ways to Get Better Gas Mileage
Despite low gas prices, filling up your gas tank can really be a pain in the wallet. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to improve your fuel economy. To get you started, here are some easy ways to get better gas mileage:
- Slow down. For example, slowing down to 60 mph instead of driving 70 mph on the highway can save you 2-4 miles per gallon.
- Lose the weight. If your vehicle is carting old luggage, or if you’re constantly transporting a full roof rack, you aren’t getting the most mileage possible.
- Change your filter. A clogged air filter makes life difficult for your engine, also contributing to poor fuel economy.
- Lastly, turn off your car. If you find yourself stuck behind a train, waiting to pick someone else, or otherwise waiting without moving, you can save on gasoline by simply turning your vehicle off entirely.
