How Can I Improve My Vehicle’s Fuel Efficiency?

With the ever-changing price of fuel, it can be useful to know how to improve your vehicle’s efficiency and reduce gas use on every ride. And Patriot Auto Group is here to help.

Here’s a look at some of the simple steps you can take to boost your fuel economy.

  • Lose the Extra Cargo: It’s easy to forget about extra weight or materials in the back of our cars, but the truth is that they may be weighing you down. Excess weight puts unnecessary pressure on the essential parts and systems, which means greater fuel use and more regular replacements. Reduce your weight when possible.
  • Change Your Route: Different driving conditions can contribute to excess fuel use. For instance, driving in the city requires a lot of stop and go activity, and gas use will be higher. Try to find alternate routes that allow you to perform at higher capacities.
  • Schedule Service: The very best way to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency is with routine car service and care. For instance, properly filling your tires can improve efficiency by more than 3%. We’ll change the oil, replace the filter, and take other steps to boost fuel economy on every ride.

To find the perfect fuel-efficient vehicle for all your driving needs, and to keep it operating at the top of its game, come down to Patriot Auto Group today.
