Fuel Saving Tips
With gas prices soaring, everyone is looking for ways to save money on fuel. Luckily, there are actions you can take as a driver to reduce the amount of gas you use. We’re here to help you get the best possible fuel economy from your vehicle! With the help of our Service Centers in Wichita, KS, you can save money at the pump.
Check out our Fuel Saving Tips below:
1. Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated
Check your tire pressure on a regular basis and keep an eye on your tire pressure warning light. Failure to keep your tires at the recommended pressure level by your vehicle manufacturer can increase fuel consumption.
2. Keep Up On Your Engine Tune-Ups!
If your check engine light is on, it’s best to not ignore it. Regular tune-ups can save an average of 4% on your gas mileage (and replacing a dirty air filter can increase gas mileage up to 10%).
3. Drive At Lower Speeds
The faster you drive, the more gas you consume. If you’re driving on the highway, it’s best to use the cruise control option. Maintaining a constant speed over a long distance can help you save gas.
4. Remove Excess Weight From Your Vehicle
The more weight you have in your vehicle, the more fuel you will burn. If you’re planning a road trip, try to pack lightly!
5. Avoid Long Idles
If you’re sitting in the driveway waiting for a passenger or leaving your vehicle running while you are not driving, you are actually burning more fuel as compared to shutting off your vehicle and restarting it when you’re ready to go.
The 5 tips above are just a few of the many ways you can save on gas! Our Service Centers are available to help with the following fuel-saving options:
