Fuel Efficient Driving Tips

700 × 515
Does it seem like you are filling up your gas tank every other day? As we are out on the roads going from here to there, it is easy to use up our gas fairly quickly. But, not to worry! There are ways for you to increase the fuel efficiency of your vehicle and it can be as easy as making sure your tires or inflated correctly or changing your air filter and All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge is here to share some of those. 

 

1. Change your air filter

A dirty air filter can reduce your gas mileage up to 20%

 

2. Check your tire inflation

Underinflated tires aren’t just hazardous—they consume fuel economy by as much as 25%

 

3. Change your travel time

Schedule your trips and errands for times when traffic is lighter

 

4. Lighten your load

For every extra 250 pounds your engine hauls, the car loses about one mile per gallon in fuel economy

 

5. Purchase gas during the coolest time of the day

During coolest times gasoline is densest in nature. Gas pumps measure volumes of gasoline, not densities of fuel concentration.

 

6. Don’t overfill your tank

Overfilling your tank can lead to gas wastage

 

7. Tighten your fuel tank cap

Improperly sealed gas caps allow 147 million gallons of fuel to vaporize every year in the U.S.

 

8. Drive at a moderate speed

You can assume that for every 5 mph you drive over 60mph you’re paying an additional .20 cents per gallon in gas
