Fuel Efficiency Tips
Service your vehicle regularly. Proper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs, or low fluid levels.
Use cruise control. Maintaining a constant speed over long distances often saves gas.
Avoid heavy loads. Remove unnecessary items from your trunk and pack lightly for long trips.
Avoid long idles. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle for this time.
Purchase a fuel-efficient vehicle. When buying a new car, examine the vehicle’s rated fuel efficiency. Usually choosing a smaller vehicle will provide you with greter fuel economy.
