KEEP YOUR ENGINE WELL-TUNED WITH A PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROVIDER AND REPAIR ANY PROBLEMS IMMEDIATELY - If your car has failed an emissions test or is noticeably out of tune, repairing the problem could improve your gasoline mileage by 4 percent on average, though results vary based on the kind of repair and how well it is done. Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve your mileage by as much as 40 percent. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

KEEP YOUR TIRES AT THE RIGHT PRESSURE - Proper air pressure cuts down on fuel used while driving. Keeping tires at the correct pressure can improve your gasoline mileage by more than 3 percent. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires. Properly inflated tires are safer and last longer. The proper tire pressure for your vehicle is usually found on a sticker in the driver's side door jamb or the glove box and in your owner's manual. Do not use the maximum pressure printed on the tire's sidewall. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

REMOVE EXCESS WEIGHT - Keep your trunk and back seat clear of unnecessary items that only add weight. Removing excess weight can improve your gasoline mileage. An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your gasoline mileage by up to 2 percent. The reduction is based on the percentage of extra weight relative to the vehicle's weight and affects smaller vehicles more than larger ones. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

REDUCE DRAG - A roof rack or carrier provides additional cargo space and may allow you to meet your needs with a smaller car. However, a loaded roof rack can decrease your fuel economy by 5 percent. Reduce aerodynamic drag and improve your fuel economy by removing your roof rack when not in use. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

DRIVE SMOOTHLY - Avoid heavy acceleration or braking. Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower your gasoline mileage by 5 percent at lower speeds around town and by 33 percent at highway speeds. Sensible driving is also safer for you and others, so you may save more than just money. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

CONSERVE MOMENTUM AND KEEP YOUR DISTANCE - Think ahead when you’re driving. For example, slow down early to let traffic lights change, rather than stopping completely, or speed up a little before you reach the foot of a hill. Leave a sensible distance between yourself and the car ahead to give you ample time to brake evenly. SOURCE: www.fuelacademy.com

USE CRUISE CONTROL - Maintaining a constant speed on major roads and in free flowing traffic can improve gasoline mileage. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

AVOID HIGHER SPEEDS - While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. You can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 50 mph is like paying an additional $0.26 per gallon for gas. Observing the speed limit is also safer. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

AVOID IDLING - When you idle, you get zero miles-per-gallon. Idling can use a quarter to a half gallon of fuel per hour, depending on engine size and air conditioner (AC) use. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

PLAN YOUR OUTINGS AND AVOID SEPARATE TRIPS - Combining errands into one trip saves you time and money. Trip planning ensures that traveling is done when the engine is warmed-up and running more efficiently, and it can reduce the distance you travel. Try to avoid rush hours and consider telecommuting and carpooling when possible. Cutting down on the time spent in the car is the easiest way to use less fuel. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

USE OVERDRIVE GEARS - When you use overdrive, your car's engine speed goes down. This uses less gas and reduces engine wear. SOURCE: www.fueleconomy.gov

USE AIR CONDITIONING SPARINGLY - Air conditioning puts added strain on the engine and uses fuel to operate, so limit use to particularly hot days. On high temperature days consider using the fan instead. SOURCE: www.fuelacademy.com
