How Can I Save Money on Gas?

save money on gas

Everyone wants to get the best possible gas mileage. Here are five ways to get more mileage out of each tank of gas:

  1. Remove dead weight: Get rid of the extra junk in your car. From golf clubs to work boots to tire chains, it all adds up to impact your MPG. Outside extras like trunk and roof racks can be culprits, too. If you’re not using the gear or rack this season, remove it.

  2. Properly inflate your tires: Keeping tires properly inflated can improve gas mileage by reducing the rolling resistance. The proper PSI reading for your tires is usually found on a sticker on the driver’s door. (Note that over-inflating tires can be dangerous and lead to uneven wear.)

  3. Stay on top of routine maintenance: Keeping your car in good working condition, including changing the filters, will improve your MPG. Clean oil reduces friction, which impacts car performance and fuel economy.

  4. Buy gas in the morning: It may sound silly, but on days when temperatures are going to rise (especially in summer), when you purchase gas makes a difference. Gas is denser when cool, which means you’re getting more fuel for your buck.

  5. Slow down: Driving smoothly without unnecessary acceleration and braking can significantly increase your MPG. The difference between driving 50 miles per hour versus 70 MPH can increase your gas mileage by nearly 25%!

With these five helpful tips, you can be assured that your gas milage will drop a significant amount and you will be happy with those extra dollars in your wallet.
