How to Save Gas While Driving
When you spend your hard-earned money on a luxurious new Mercedes-Benz, the last thing you want to think about is the additional gas money you’ll have to fork up. While World Wide Motors offers many fuel-efficient options, there are a few things you can do to stretch out your gas tank even more. Not only will you be saving money, but you’ll be keeping the environment clean. Read on for tips on how to save gas while driving.
Roll Up Windows
You’ll want to ensure your vehicle is as aerodynamic as possible, so opening windows should be kept to a minimum. Running the air conditioning might affect your fuel efficiency a little bit, but it will be far less than having open windows.
Keep Tires Inflated
How often do you check tire pressure? If you don’t do it frequently, it may be time to get in the habit. It’s just one more thing you can do to keep those MPGs up.
Coast When You Can
It’s a good idea to coast when you can for a couple of reasons. Not only does it use far less fuel, but gradually slowing down before a stop sign allows you to not have to apply the brakes as frequently or as hard. Coasting is a win-win!
Tighten the Gas Cap
Better double check the gas cap the next time you fill up. Leaving it even partially open can allow fuel to evaporate out (not to mention that annoying check engine light will start blinking). Make sure you’ve twisted it on tight and snug.
Why drive if you don’t need to? The best way to save fuel is by simply not driving. Walk if your destination is nearby or carpool if you and some neighbors or friends are heading to the same place.
Don’t get stuck at the pump more often than necessary. Do yourself a favor and change up your driving habits a little bit, and then watch your savings pile up.
