However, if you need to hold on to your car for a little while longer and are trying to think of ways to keep your gas mileage up, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Keep Your Foot off the Brake: A steady foot is an easy way to make sure your gas bill doesn't get too high. That's because braking and rapid acceleration wastes gas. Try your best to keep a steady speed and brake slowly at stops.
Get the Bricks out of the Trunk: We don't mean that literally, but if you do actually have bricks in your trunk, it might be a good idea to get them out. Any added weight will make your car use more gas to achieve a certain speed. If you treat your car like a storage space, you should plan a clean-out.
Check Your Tire Pressure: It's not only safe to keep your tires pumped at an adequate level; it is also good for your gas mileage. If you have an older car, you can do it manually, but make sure the tires are cold for an accurate reading. Most new models will have an automatic monitor.
Fuel Up at Morning or Night: Here's a tip that is especially important in the sweltering summer heat. Did you know that fuel that is filled in the early morning and nighttime is denser because of the cooler temperatures? Therefore, you will get more fuel for the same price when you go to the pump before your morning commute or later in the evening.
By paying attention to fuel-efficiency, you'll be able to save money at the pump and spend it on more important things like that summer vacation. Enjoy your time on the road from 1800 Autoland!
