Tips to Improve Your Gas Mileage

Ideas to increase gas mileage

With gas prices rising, everyone is looking for ways to save money on their next fill up. Here are some ways you can improve your vehicle’s gas mileage.

Drive Slower. Stop-and-go driving uses more gas than maintaining a consistent speed.

Maintain Your Tire Pressure. Properly inflated tires can cost you at the pumps. Low tire pressure can also cause your tires to wear faster.

Keep Up with Maintenance. Keeping your car running efficiently means it will use less gas. Replacing dirty air filters and spark plugs, as well has getting your car aligned, can improve your gas mileage.

Watch for Warning Lights. If your vehicle alerts you that a problem has been found, get it addressed as soon as possible.

Consolidate trips when possible. Don’t run out to the grocery store in the morning and back out to the pharmacy in the afternoon. When possible, make one trip for errands. Or, even run errands are your way to or from work.

While none of us can control gas prices, we can get the most from the fuel we purchase by using it wisely. Another way to save is with your car insurance. Contact us at Morris Insurance Services to make sure you have the coverage you need at the best price.
