Save $300 on Gasoline for Your Automobile

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Would you like to save $300 or more in gasoline purchases in the next 12 months? Well, it’s much easier than you might imagine. If you drive an average of 15,000 miles per year, and if your car achieves 20 mpg, you can save $300 or more in gasoline purchases by simply improving your automobile’s performance by 10%.

Sound impossible? Think again. Here are some simple steps you can perform regularly that will put you on the road to reducing your car’s fuel consumption.

Did you know that, according to the FTC, improperly inflated tires can increase fuel usage by as much as 3%? The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that five million gallons of fuel per day are wasted due to low tire pressure.

Check your tire pressure when your tires are cold. Check your owner’s manual for recommended tire pressure.

Tighten your fuel cap. An estimated 147 million gallons of gas vaporize annually due to damaged, loose or missing gas caps.

Lose the weight. An extra 100 pounds in your trunk reduces a typical car’s fuel economy by 1 to 2% according to carecare.org.

Cruise control saves money as does observing the speed limit. And rapid acceleration and hard breaking can lower gas mileage by as much as 33%.

Skip the upgrade. Follow your automobile manufacturer’s octane recommendations. Buying a higher octane gas is a waste of money.

Even greater fuel savings are available by properly maintaining your car.

Using the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil can improve gas mileage by 1 to 2%. And following the recommended maintenance schedule for your automobile can increase mileage an additional 4%.

Poorly aligned tires, dirty air filters, dirty spark plugs and worn oxygen sensors can rob your vehicle of up to 9 mpg according to carecare.org.

While you can perform many of these recommended gas savings procedures yourself, you will need to rely on a certified mechanic to perform other procedures. And the great news is you don’t have to pay dealer prices for service anymore.
