Gas is expensive. If you’re like most Americans than you groan every time you go to the gas station. Fuel may not be getting any cheaper but there are some simple steps you can take to improving your MPG.
We all like to get where we’re going as fast as possible, but you could be burning fuel while burning rubber. According to the U.S. Government, you could save between $0.16-$0.33/gallon simply by observing the speed limit. That may not seem like a lot, but in the end it’ll add up! (Plus, less money spent on speeding tickets means more money in your pocket!)
Driving aggressively (rapidly accelerating and braking) is a big waste of gas. Your aggressive driving can lower your gas mileage by as much as 30% on the highway and up to 40% in stop-and-go traffic! Taking your time, and driving defensively rather than aggressively is not only safer for you and your passengers, it’s cheaper!
Replace Your Engine!
If your car is struggling to run, then you’re wasting gas. If purchasing a new car is out of the question, consider rebuilding or replacing your engine. A reputable mechanic, like American Engine Installations can restore your engine and save you from buying a brand new vehicle.
