3 Simple Tips That Help to Increase Car Fuel Efficiency
If you’re like most Americans, and drive about 20,000 miles a year, gas-saving should be a great idea coming to your mind, because, through increasing your car’s fuel efficiency by 10 MPG, you can save over a thousand bucks a year – not to mention countless stops at the gas station where you breathe fumes and stand in the rain. According to the authority data, for every 1,000 miles you drive, figuring gas at $2.50 a gallon and 25 MPG fuel efficiency, you’d save as much as $15 if you drove 10 mph slower.
Keep your tires inflated
No joke, underinflated tires make your car work harder, sucking up more gas as you drive. Check your PSI regularly to make sure you’re running at the correct tire pressure and boost your gas mileage by 3%!
Check your air filter
The air filter is what helps your car ‘breathe.’ A clogged one can make your car run rough and use more gas than it needs to. By spending a couple of dollars on a new filter, you can improve your MPG by 10%! Wow!
Look, we know you do, but we also know that sometimes you may be in a hurry. This leads to maybe you being a bit more aggressive with the gas pedal…but ease up! On the highway, this can lower your MPG by 33%!!
These tips will save way more gas money for you to use on improving the quality of your life or bringing a gift to your kit every month.
