Sometimes it feels like you just put gas in your car and how is it already empty? There are things that all drivers can do to improve their fuel economy in their current vehicle.

  • Change your oil regularly. When your engine is dirty is has to work harder and will burn more fuel. But changing your oil regularly will keep your engine clean and healthy so it doesn't have to work as hard, and will use less fuel.
  • Make sure your tires have enough air in them. Under inflated tires create drag on the road and your engine has to work harder to move forward.
  • Don’t need that roof box or bike rack on your car right now? Or the random things that have been kicking around your trunk? Clean out your car and take off the roof accessories to help lighten your car. When your vehicle weighs more your engine uses more gas because it has to work hard to move everything.
  • Cruise control is one of the easiest ways to boost your fuel economy. By driving at the same speed on the highway or long stretches of road you won't use as much fuel as if you speed up and slow down.
