What are Some Ways You Can Get Better Gas Mileage?

Whether you want to cut down on your consumption of fuel or just save money at the gas pump, you might be asking yourself "How do I save on gas?"

  1. Drive Slower.  You'll save up to 14% by slowing down to the speed limit.
  2. If your car has a stop/start feature, leave it on, even if it annoys you.  If your car is shut off for as little as seven seconds, you will start to see meaningful gains in fuel economy.
  3. If your car has a sport mode or tow/haul mode, do not use it unless you actually need it.
  4. Tire Pressure. This is easy and free. Follow the manufacturer's recommendation and increase fuel economy by as much as 3% and lengthen the life of your tires.
  5. Remove the roof rack that you haven't used since 1997.  It could be costing you as much as 25% fuel economy.
