How to Improve Gas Mileage in 6 Easy Ways

Keep up with regular maintenance

Perhaps one of the most effective ways to improve your gas mileage is to keep up with routine maintenance due to the fact that your gas mileage can be affected by worn-out spark plugs, improper tire inflation, and other factors. Consult the owner’s manual to see when you would need to schedule service in the Richlands area.

Limit idling

Did you know that idling actually uses more fuel than restarting your car? We recommend turning off your vehicle to conserve fuel. Many vehicles have Auto Start-Stop technology which turns your engine when you are stopping, and turns the vehicle on when you are driving.

Remove excess weight

Remove any unnecessary bulky items from your vehicle, which makes your vehicle work harder. You might need to remove bike racks or roof boxes as they create extra wind resistance.

Drive at a steady speed

Driving at excessive speeds will decrease your fuel economy. Always follow the speed limit and use cruise control whenever you can. You should also avoid rapidly accelerating or braking, as this burns gas quickly.

Plan ahead

As we mentioned, idling is harmful to your fuel economy, so plan your trips ahead of time to avoid traffic in the Sneads Ferry area.

Coast when possible

Our last tip on improving fuel efficiency is allowing your vehicle to coast when it’s safe to do so. Let your vehicle come to a smooth coast when no one is in front of you.
