Tips for Improving Your Vehicle’s Fuel Economy

We’re all looking for simple ways to save extra money. In today’s world of fluctuating gas prices, paying attention to your vehicle’s fuel economy is a great way to painlessly save yourself some cash. Here are five tips that anyone can implement to get the most out of their vehicle:

1. Drive Slower and Brake Moderately
This isn’t a glamorous tip, but it’s the easiest to implement and it will keep you safer too. Reduce your driving speeds as much as possible and pay attention to your braking and accelerating habits. Avoid slamming on the brakes or accelerating rapidly and you’ll be on your way to enjoying enhanced fuel economy, plus your brakes will last longer!

2. Remove Roof Racks and Equipment Racks When Not Using
Most people don’t bike or ski everyday. Make your vehicle lighter and more aerodynamic (and consequently more fuel efficient) by removing racks and holders when not in use.

3. Change Your Engine Air Filter, Your Oil, and Your Oil Filter
A well-functioning engine requires less gas to run properly. Pay attention to these three things and you’ll notice a huge difference in fuel economy. At Ontario Auto Center, we would be happy to help with these routine maintenance tasks.

4. Replace Your Spark Plugs
This is another simple, affordable replacement that can improve your vehicle’s overall functioning and fuel efficiency too.

5. Remove Any Unneeded Cargo from Your Vehicle
Make sure that your vehicle isn’t full of junk. Not only will you enjoy a cleaner, more spacious vehicle, you’ll be lightening up your car and consequently getting more miles from your gasoline.

Ultimately, a car that is in good running order gets the best gas mileage.
