It’s summer, the time of long weekends away from your Mobile Eastern Shore home, fun-filled day trips, and long-awaited vacations. Unfortunately, it is also the time of high gas prices in an already difficult economy, thus making road trips expensive. However, before you feel forced to rethink your plans because of fuel costs, you can take steps to improve your gas mileage and lower expenses; in fact, the Consumer Federation of America has predicted that by practicing these tips, a driver can increase his/her mileage by as much as 13%! So read on–and save!
CHANGE YOUR OIL AND OIL FILTER REGULARLY:
Just as you must change the filter on the heating/cooling system in your Mobile Eastern Shore home, you need to do the same for your vehicle. Because the engine needs to breathe to create maximum power and efficiency, you can gain up to 23 miles on a tank of gas just by replacing the filter.
CHECK YOUR TIRES:
Did you know that more than one fourth of all passenger vehicles have under-inflated tires? Proper inflation can save you 11 cents a gallon of gas.
KEEP YOUR ENGINE TUNED UP:
Want to save 15 cents a gallon? Make certain the car engine is properly tuned up. Use synthetic oil to reduce friction, increase efficiency, and help with mileage. In addition, you should keep fuel injectors clean by using an injector cleaner once or twice a year.
CHECK THE WHEEL ALIGNMENT:
In addition to wearing out your tires at a faster rate, improper alignment makes your engine work harder and reduces mileages by as much as 10%.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR DRIVING HABITS:
Five good ones in particular positively affect gas mileage. 1. Drive smoothly. Be patient in accelerating and stopping to save up to 68 cents a gallon. 2. Slow down! For each 5 mph decrease, your fuel consumption is reduced by 7%. 3. Keep your foot off the brake. “Riding” the brake will both wear out your brakes and cost you close to $1.35 per gallon of gas! 4. Avoid excessive idling. For every two minutes not spent idling, you’ll save nearly 1 cent a gallon. 5. Use cruise control on the highway. Maintaining a constant speed will generally save you money
REDUCE THE LOAD YOU CARRY:
For each 100 pounds of “stuff” you unload, be it golf clubs, sand, bricks, etc., you’ll most likely gain another mile per gallon.
CHECK YOUR GAS CAP:
This tip may sound a little silly, but it is estimated that nearly 17% vehicles on the road have missing or broken gas caps–a situation which not only harms the environment but also can cost the driver 3 cents a gallon.
Allow plenty of time to get where you’re going so you don’t have to speed to meet a timeline. Look at the route you’ll be taking to discover shortcuts, better roads, etc. Shop in advance for low gas prices and find the best places to refuel along your journey. You might also check with your credit card or gas company to see if it offers any deals on purchasing gasoline.
After you add up all your possible savings from these tips, you’ll most likely find that you can indeed afford to leave your Mobile Eastern Shore home for some “get away and relax” trips this summer. Enjoy!!!
