Have you been eyeing a new car in the market and wishing the one you already own had the same kind of fuel economy? If you follow the tips below, it just might be able to.
Getting better fuel economy doesn’t require installing special parts or learning difficult driving techniques. All it takes is smooth and efficient driving.
The best way to improve your fuel economy is to take it easy on the gas and brake pedals. Avoid hard acceleration at every green light and try to coast to a stop as often as possible. Not only will this significantly improve your mileage but also make your driving easier on the brakes and tires.
Remove Excess Resistance
Extra weight and aerodynamic drag make the engine work harder to get you just as far. If your car is loaded up with cargo that doesn’t need to be there, or equipped with a rooftop carrier that isn’t being used, it’ll consume more gas. Roll up the windows, close the sunroof, and get rid of all excess weight and air resistance to be as efficient as possible.
A key aspect of getting good fuel economy is to keep your car in good condition, especially with regard to the tires. Check the pressure frequently and occasionally check the alignment as well.
