Although you cannot control the price of gas, you can control how much gas you use by following simple and inexpensive vehicle maintenance. Most of us do not have the option of driving less when gas prices rise, but you can make sure your vehicle is getting maximum fuel economy. Fuel consumption is directly related to vehicle care and driver behavior and both have a significant impact on how much you pay at the pump. Following a routine maintenance program will go a long way toward improving fuel efficiency and the value of your investment. After all, a vehicle is an investment and should be maintained to avoid lost resale value which results in a larger return on your investment.Maximize Fuel EconomySimple steps to save gas without driving less:
-Keeping your car properly tuned improves gas mileage by an average of 4%.
-Keeping tires properly inflated improves gas mileage by 3%.
-Replacing dirty or clogged air filters on older vehicles improves gas mileage by as much as 14%.
-Replace dirty spark plugs, which can reduce gas mileage by 2 mpg.
-Change oil regularly and gain another mpg.
-Check the gas cap. Damaged, loose or missing gas caps allow gas to vaporize into the air.
-Observe the speed limit. Gas mileage decreases rapidly above 60 mph.
-Avoid excess idling. Idling gets zero miles per gallon. Warming up the vehicle for 1 or 2 minutes is sufficient.
-Avoid quick starts and stops. Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by 33% on the hwy and 5% in the city.
-Consolidate trips. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much gas as one longer multi-purpose trip.
-Do not haul unneeded items in the trunk. An extra 100 pounds in the trunk reduces fuel economy by 1% - 2%.
Some motorists think they are saving money when they put off needed vehicle maintenance. Actually, neglecting routine maintenance can end up costing a lot more. Keeping your car running efficiently and modifying your driving behavior is the best way to improve your vehicles fuel economy.
