GAS PRICES ARE ON THE RISE, 7 TIPS BELOW TO HELP YOU SAVE.

HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE TIPS ON HOW TO PRESERVE GAS.

 

The cost of driving has risen significantly in recent years, particularly with the rapid rise in gas prices. 


Follow these 7 tips below and you could be driving further for less, and by using your vehicle less you will avoid additional auto service expenses.


1. If you are driving a manual transmission vehicle, use the highest gear at top speeds. Driving at high speeds in low gears can result in 45% more fuel being consumed than needed. This also causes your engine to work harder, and your auto will require service sooner.


2. Keep your tires inflated to the correct pressure. Fuel economy can be improved by up to 5% by keeping your tires properly inflated. The recommended pressure for your tires can be found in your vehicle handbook, drivers side door, and, in some cases, next to the air device at gas stations.


3. Don?t drive erratically. Constantly accelerating and braking consumes more fuel than smoother driving. This also causes more wear on your engine, which overtime will require high auto service expenses.


4. Avoid overuse the air conditioning. Your AC, makes your engine work harder and use more gas.


5. Avoid short journeys. Driving short distances is significantly less fuel efficient than longer journeys. For example, every time your car engine is turned on it is equivalent to idling your engine for one minute. Instead set time aside to walk short distances.


6. Share the journey. Sharing a ride into work (or anywhere) with one or more other people slashes your fuel bill by half by allowing you to share the cost of driving. Many cities have ride share programs, and easily accessible free parking lots next to the freeway entrances.


7. Close your windows. Having windows open at high speeds creates significant drag meaning that more fuel is used. Even if closing your windows means the air conditioning is required it is still more fuel efficient.

Transmission Tip

  Check transmission fluid monthly on a level surface with the engine warm and running, and parking brake on. Shift to drive, then to park. Remove dipstick, wipe dry, insert it and remove it again. Add the approved type fluid, if needed. Do not overfill!
