Save Money on Gas with
these 5 Habits
Your driving habits and vehicle
maintenance (or lack of maintenance) can impact your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
Here are a few tips for saving fuel and funds:
up! Check the air pressure in your tires weekly and top them off if
they’re low. It takes just a few minutes and can save you about $75 each
year in gas.
up! The best gas mileage is usually achieved at speeds below 60 miles
per hour. Slowing down just a little from 65 mph to 60 mph can save around
20 cents per gallon! Show up! (Late or not at all.) Sitting in traffic wastes gasoline. If
possible arrange your work schedule to avoid commuting during rush hour
or telecommute a couple of days each week.
up! Let gas mileage be the #1 priority on your new car shopping
list. The U.S. Department of
Energy’s website has good information on fuel-efficient vehicles.
up! Driving that is…Car pool, try a motorcycle, walk, bike, or take
the bus. You may also get a discount on car insurance in addition to
saving a lot of money on gas.
Gas prices continue to rise,
taking a bigger and bigger chunk out of every family’s budget. The good news is
that making a few simple changes result in significant savings.
