6 Ways to Make Your Vehicle More Fuel-Efficient

6 Ways to Make Your Vehicle More Fuel-Efficient

PEKIN, Ill. – Gas prices are always fluctuating, so anything you can do on your own to cut down on the cost of gas is helpful. At Velde ford we’re here to give you a few tips to help you save gas and money. Take a look at our 6 ways to make your vehicle more fuel-efficient.

6 Ways to Make Your Vehicle More Fuel-Efficient
  1. Use cruise control. If you’re driving on the highway for an extended period of time, flip on your cruise control. Cruise control keeps you at one speed, which will increase your miles per gallon.
  2. Check your tire pressure once a month. You can find the correct PSI on the inside of your driver door. Under-inflated tires will burn through more fuel, so keeping them properly inflated will give you more miles.
  3. Think about your driving style. If you find yourself often accelerating quickly you’re probably burning through quite a bit of gas. Always try to accelerate gradually.
  4. Lighten your load. If you carry a lot in your trunk, we encourage you to clean it out. All you need is your essentials like fluid bottles,  your emergency kit, and maybe some tools. The heavier your car is, the less miles you’re getting per gallon.
  5. Love your engine. Give your engine the attention it needs with routine oil changes and other services. If everything is running smoothly under the hood, your fuel-efficiency will be the best it can be.
  6. Take care of all your errands at once. If you have a lot of errands to run in one day, try doing them all at once. If you’re taking multiple small trips, you’re wasting much more gas.
