Fuel Economy Tips: How to Minimize Your Daily Car Expenses

Owning a car can be a big responsibility, especially when you have to deal with increasing fuel prices. Like how you consume electricity and water at home, your car also consumes fuel. That always translates to expenses, and before you know it, you’re paying more for your car than for yourself. You can address this situation by employing ways to lower your car expenses, such as maximizing the energy it consumes. Here are some tips.

You don't actually see how your car consumes energy. You can only monitor its fuel consumption through the devices near the steering wheel. A car's efficiency is measured by its fuel consumption per distance of travel, a ratio commonly known as mileage. If your car uses more fuel than your officemate's even if both of you travel the same distance, then your car generates a higher mileage and, consequently, higher transportation expenses.

Various factors can affect your car's mileage. Some features make it difficult for your car's engine to spend minimal energy for every travel. One common factor is weight. If you always overload your car, expect it to consume more fuel than it should. Car dealers in large cities like Edmonton usually orient their clients about the importance of following the instructions in the manufacturer's manual, especially the specifications about the car's maximum loading capacity.

The term "drag" is often used in place of "weight" when discussing about fuel economy. If you’re not into off-road driving, better choose a two-wheel drive instead of a four-wheel drive car. This is because four-wheel drive cars for sale in Edmonton produce additional drag to the powertrain. Although this slightly enhances the car's speed and acceleration, this design consumes more fuel than it is expected to save.

Your car's air-conditioning is probably your most esteemed feature since it keeps a comfortable atmosphere inside your car. The problem is air conditioning systems in cars for sale Edmonton dealers provide normally weigh about a hundred pounds. Meaning, it can drain energy even if it's turned off.

If you want to keep your air-conditioning, you can instead adjust the car's color. Yes, it may be hard to believe but this can help you minimize the use of your air conditioning system. Choose a car with a light color since it does not easily absorb heat. Whether it is a brand new car you bought through Edmonton auto finance or a used car, the same principle applies.
