PSA: Some Simple Tips to Keep Gas Expenses Down

As gas prices continue to soar, most motorists are keeping a careful eye on their gas usage habits, as well as looking for ways to decrease fuel expenditures.

Here are some tips that can help you conserve your vehicle’s gas and save you some money at the pump:

  • Keep your tires properly inflated. Deflated or underinflated tires force the engine to work harder, thereby using more gasoline
  • Go to a repair shop if your engine light is on. The issue is likely to be causing fuel consumption issues
  • Avoid rapid accelerations and decelerations. Both force your engine to work harder. Accelerate and decelerate smoothly.
  • Don’t idle. Keeping your engine running while your car is just sitting will unnecessarily burn off precious gasoline
  • Use cruise control when possible. Doing so will allow the engine to maintain consistency and use less energy.
  • Minimize the use of air conditioning. Yes, using the air conditioning in your vehicle will cause the gas to run out faster.
  • Remove weight from your vehicle. Do you have packages and items in your vehicle? Take them out. The heavier your car is, the more gas is needed to make it move.
  • Use regular grade gasoline. Unless your vehicle specifically requires high-grade or premium gas, avoid it. They provide no benefit to regular cars and will only cost you more money.
  • Slow down. Don’t go above the speed limit on the highway. When going over 50 mph, aerodynamic drag causes fuel efficiency to drop off considerably
