How to Improve Your Fuel Economy

Do Your Best to Maintain Your Vehicle

Probably the most important tip to guarantee a more fuel efficient vehicle is to keep it in the proper working condition. This is because, for example, if the brakes are faulty or if the tires are worn down, the engine will have to work a lot harder (and use a lot more fuel) to get you to your destination. Paying attention to your vehicle's functioning as well as taking it to a mechanic at least twice a year, will guarantee that all of its components are working as expected, which will positively affect your fuel economy and will lessen your carbon footprint.

Make Use of the Best Gasoline and Additives

Opting for cheap gasoline and cheap (or non-existent) additives, may mean that you'll end up wasting more money and CO2 emissions than you need to. For starters, filling your tank with cheap gasoline can, in the long run, have adverse effects on the fuel system's shape and performance. Opt for a high quality product to yield better results. Speaking of which, you should make use of a high quality additive, such as AMSOIL's P.i. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive. It will help you have a more eco-friendly and money-conscious vehicle.

Become a Gentler Driver

One thing you definitely should consider in your effort to improve your vehicle's fuel economy is how you drive. This is because, if you're reckless and drive around like a madman (speeding, coming to a sudden stop, taking sharp turns, and more), you will waste a lot more fuel and money. The engine has to work extra hard whenever you're reckless, as it needs to keep up with your crazy demands. To care for your emissions and wallet, be a gentler driver. Driving around a steady pace, and avoiding insane stunts will be better for your fuel efficiency. Not to mention, it will also be better for your vehicle's condition and to your own well-being.

Keep Your Vehicle Light

As it has been mentioned a few times in this post, the more stress the engine is under, the more fuel it will waste to keep you going. One way to make the engine work harder is to make your vehicle heavy. If you're always filling it up with all sorts of things that you don't need on a daily basis, the extra weight will make the vehicle harder to move around. Keep your vehicle light so you can drive it around smoothly and in a more fuel efficient manner.

Think About How You'll Stay Fresh

Lastly, as we're heading into the hotter months of the year, you'll surely need a way to remain fresh while you're driving your vehicle. Still, how you choose to do it can have an impact in your fuel efficiency. On the one hand, rolling down the windows will fill the vehicle with air, which will make the vehicle heavier and will force the engine to stress and use up more gas. On the other, to power the AC system,  you'll also need to use up more gas. In this case, it's suggested that you consider your options and choose the one that suits you best.
