5 Easy Steps to Better Gas Mileage

Pretty young woman refuel the car

It’s never fun when you fill up your tank and watch as the gas pump slowly totals your bill – $10, $20, $30…and it often keeps going up. Even with gas in the $2.19 range, it’s still worth taking these steps to improve your gas mileage.

  1. Check Tire Pressure: Keep tires properly inflated and improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.
  2. Use the Right Motor Oil: Improve gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent by using the grade of motor oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  3. Replace Clogged Air Filters: Replacing clogged air filters on older vehicles can improve fuel economy and will improve performance and acceleration on all vehicles.
  4. Check Engine Performance: Keep your engine running efficiently and improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent.
  5. Fix It: Addressing a serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent, according to www.fueleconomy.gov.

“Proactive vehicle maintenance is a motorist’s best money saving tip,” says Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “Routine auto care not only helps save on fuel costs, but it helps identify small issues so they can be serviced before they become bigger and more costly to repair.”
