How to Improve your Vehicles Fuel Economy
Keep your tires properly inflated. Driving with your tires at the proper inflation can improve your efficiency by up to 3%. That’s a savings of $30 to $70 depending on how much you drive, and can reduce greenhouse gasses by 1.42% to 0.69 percent. Under-inflated tires alone cost the country more than $3.5 million gallons of gasoline each day.
Reduce excess vehicle weight. Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your trunk. Each 100 pounds can reduce your fuel economy by 2%. You can save up to 12 gallons of gasoline per year up to $40 – be removing an extra 100 pounds of unneeded items from the trunk.
Keep your car properly tuned. A well-tuned car can run 4% more efficiently than one that is out or tune or has failed its emissions test.
Check and replace air filters regularly. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve your fuel economy by as much as 10%
