No matter what fuel efficiency rating your vehicle has, there may be something you can do to make it better. These tips to increase fuel efficiency will help you get the most out of each gallon of gas.
Good car maintenance helps your vehicle to run as efficiently and as safely as possible. Check your owner’s manual to see how frequently your vehicle needs things like oil changes and new air filters. These things will keep your engine running efficiently.
In between scheduled car maintenance, you can check your vehicle’s tires to ensure they have the correct air pressure. Tires with low air pressure will not perform as efficiently as possible and have a negative impact on fuel economy.
If you’re used to riding the brake or putting the pedal to the metal, you’re probably using much more fuel than you need to. Instead, learn to brake only when absolutely needed. Coast to stops at lights and stop signs, and learn to gradually slow down in traffic rather than braking last minute. Slow acceleration takes much less fuel than quick acceleration, making it a must for saving money and boosting efficiency
These are just some of the many ways you can improve the efficiency of your vehicle. If you’re due for an upgrade, why not consider an efficient new Ford like the stylish Fusion Energi or even the Ford F-150 and its best-in-class 3.0-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel?
