Reduce Summer Gas Costs With These Tips

1

 

With gas prices at an all-time high, it makes more and more sense to squeeze the most miles you can out of every gallon. Aside from using public transportation, telecommuting, walking/biking, or purchasing a new Hyundai in Phoenix, there are some things you can do to cut down on your fuel bill. Here are some tips that will help you save on gas during the summer months.

  • Check your air filter. A clean air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.
  • Have your tires aligned and inflated. Poor alignment causes tires to wear out more quickly and your engine to work harder.
  • Maintain your car with regular services to run efficiently. A properly maintained engine can improve mileage by up to 4 percent.
  • Drive slowly. Every 5 mph reduction in highway speed leads to a 7-percent reduction in fuel consumption.
  • Don’t rest your foot on your brakes. Riding with your foot on the brake pedal will not only wear out the brake pads, but it can also increase gas consumption.
  • Reduce the weight of your car. Empty your trunk, remove any unnecessary items on the seats, and pack as lightly as possible for
  • Stay cool using your windows. Use your windows instead of your air conditioner at slower speeds, but consider rolling up your windows in favor of A/C on the highway to minimize drag.
  • Don’t idle for more than 30 seconds. Avoid using the drive-through, and turn off your car in heavy traffic or long stops.
  • Stay informed. Check out one of the many websites or mobile apps that post gas prices at surrounding stations to find the lowest prices in your area. Some include Gas Buddy or Gas Price Watch.
