Fuel prices are always a little higher than we’d like them to be. There’s nothing better than saving money, so why not save at the pump, too? Here are 3 tips you might not have considered that’ll help you save money on fuel.
1. Keep your tires fully inflated.
When your tires are beginning to get flat, they exert a force called “rolling resistance.” Rolling resistance refers to the dragging that occurs when tire pressure gets lower. In order to continue getting the best mileage, make sure your rolling resistance is very low. Keep track of your tire pressure, and fill up your tires whenever necessary. This will help out a lot as far as using less fuel.
2. Stick to the speed limit – seriously, it uses less fuel.
It may seem strange, but driving at the speed limit really can help you save fuel. Driving above the limit can get you to wherever you’re going a little quicker. However, it decreases your mileage. You might be saving time, but ultimately, you’re burning more fuel than you need to. Getting to your destination may take a few extra minutes, but do your best to stick to the speed limit. Your mileage (and wallet) will thank you.
3. Do maintenance on your vehicle regularly.
Regular upkeep of your vehicle keeps it in top condition; this will keep your mileage the best it can be. Even a new air filter or motor oil can increase your mileage and keep you driving longer distances between fill ups. It may be a bit inconvenient to stick to the recommended maintenance schedule, but it will definitely pay off in the long run.
