Tips to Increase Fuel Efficiency

Driving a fuel-efficient vehicle is not only good for the environment, but it's also easy on the pockets. However, there are a few more ways to get more mileage from a full tank because even the most economical vehicles can get a bit thirsty when not driven and managed correctly. The best part is you don't have to spend money following these quick and easy tips.

1. Unload Your Vehicle

Do you really need those half-empty boxes and bags in your car? A lot of drivers have plenty of unnecessary items in their trunks and back seats. Unloading your vehicle will spare you fuel because your engine spends more fuel, moving more weight.

2. Stay On Top of the Traffic

Numerous apps on smart devices can let you know the fastest routes to your final destination. The less time you spend on the road, the less fuel your engine will consume.

3. Avoid Using the AC

Although it is advisable to run the compressor often, you should have it on constantly. Once the heat is up, and the interior is toasty, you can turn it off and spare yourself a few dollars in fuel.

4. Do Not Interfere with the Car's Aerodynamics

Your car is designed to move at top speeds with the least resistance. Adding objects on the top or sides of the vehicle will increase drag and fuel consumption. If it can fit inside the car, store it inside.

5. Don't Skip Routine Maintenance

Your car's maintenance schedule is there for a reason. The engine and other fundamental components will stay in tip-top shape and spare you money by losing fuel.

6. Cut off the engine when it's not in use

Leaving your car engine running to run inside and get something is costing you money. Turn the engine off to save on fuel and avoid braking too often because that means you will need to accelerate more to reach cruising speed.
