4 Simple Tips to Improve your Fuel Mileage and Save you Gas Money
Summer is finally here and chances are you’re probably already starting to plan those long summer road trips. If that’s the case, you’ll want to check out these tips to better your fuel economy.
1. Proper Tire Inflation
Driving with under-inflated tires is a lot like driving with the emergency brake. Not only are you reducing your fuel efficiency, you’re also increasing the rate of wear on your tires.
2. Use the Recommended Oil
According to EPA, you can improve your gas mileage by at least 1%-2% by simply using the recommended grade of motor oil by Mercedes-Benz.
3. Drive Sensibly and Maintain the Speed Limit
Most of us have experience some level of road rage that makes us want to speed past slower moving vehicles. Others speed because we think we might get places quicker. Lose the aggressive driving and constant braking. You’re only decreasing your gas mileage especially at speeds above 60 mph. Stick to the speed limit and use cruise control when applicable to save yourself some fuel and avoid potential hazards.
Think of everyday driving like taking a road trip with friends. You’re saving gas, sharing memories, and reducing emissions in the environment. Why wouldn’t you do this?
