Tips for Improving Gas Mileage

icon-checkmark-tn Check your tires.

Your car’s engine has to work harder to get under-inflated tires rolling. Make sure tires are inflated to the proper pressure (you get the most accurate reading when the tires are cold) before you leave for any trip.

Try to cut back on quick accelerations and sudden braking. By gradually braking and accelerating, you’ll get more miles out of every tank.

Try to drive at a constant speed whenever you can. It’s less taxing on the engine and your gas budget. Take advantage of cruise control.

icon-checkmark-tn Pack light.

The less weight you have in the car, the less work the engine has to perform. Also, anytime you can pack bags inside your car rather than on the hood or in a trailer, you’ll save gas.

Keep up with regular maintenance. Regular tune-ups and oil changes keep your car running smoothly. Be sure to check and change your air filters, belts and spark plugs regularly.
