Let’s save some gas!

Are you finally going to that dream trip of yours, living the life on the road? That romantic travelling ideal, where the trip itself is more important than your destination? Well, of course you are.

And wouldn’t it be nice to save some of the money you have reserved for gas expenses to some other, more meaningful things?

You might not think that little things matter, but they do when car fuel economy is concerned. Here’s some tips that are worthy of trying which we learned from our good friends from Team Hakka who are dedicated team from Nokian Tyres helping the everyday driver with issues interfering road safety.

First of all, get rid of all the unnecessary junk from the trunk. There’s no reason to carry all that dead weight around, especially on a longer journey. So remove those winter supplies such as bags of salt and tyre chains from the trunk of your vehicle, because the car will require less energy to move without the dead weight.

One really important thing which many people forget is to keep air in your tyres. Driving with half-flat tyres is not good for you, the car or the safety of other drivers in the traffic. Your car will move with less effort with tyres inflated to the correct psi rating. Look for the recommended psi rating on a label on your driver’s door or in the glove box.

Using the right motor oil for your vehicle is also crucial on fuel economy. If the friction and the heat generated inside your engine is too much, you’ll be ruining your car in the worst case scenario. If you put motor oil between the sliding surfaces, a lot of that friction goes away, and the engine doesn’t have to work as hard. As a result, your engine is more fuel efficient.

It’s maybe funny, but keeping your car clean actually saves your gas. Yep, the layer of dirt on your exterior creates drag that, over long distances, hurts your miles-per-gallon count. So keep your road monster washed and waxed and you will improve your vehicle’s aerodynamics, which improves your fuel economy. And on top of that you’ll feel happier about driving around in a clean vehicle.
