Tips to Increase Fuel Efficiency

With the cost of inflation these days, it makes sense that you want to get the most gas mileage that you can get. So here are some tips that will help you get the most of your car fuel efficiency.

Don't slam the brakes often

When you come up to a yellow light or see one, don't slam your brakes. Unless you are in a near accident, there is no reason for this as it can take a lot of gas and power to do this.

It can affect your tires

This part is true. If your tires are not inflated correctly, it can take a lot of energy and gas to get the car moving. So make sure that the tires are inflated correctly. It will save you some money at the gas pump.

Use the correct motor oil

If you are experienced to do oil changes yourself, do an oil change every so often to ensure your car runs smoothly. Using the wrong motor oil can indeed affect the amount of gas mileage that you would have. It can negatively affect it, so make sure you use the correct one!

Don't idle unless you need to

Unless you are in a drive thru or similar, there is no reason to idle! Idling can cause gas mileage to get worse because you are using the gas.

Replace the air filters

Sometimes it could be something as the air filter that causes bad gas mileage. How is this possible? If the air can not reach the gas tank, the gas mileage can be worse.

Slow down!

Driving fast means you are using a LOT of energy from your engine and even gas. So if you are doing the "Fast & Furious", you may find that you are using a lot of gas. Sometimes, you need to enjoy taking it slow.
