You wonder how to get more miles per gallon as you fill up the tank. Then you trip with guilt because you are aware, however vague, of the impact on the environment whenever you use your car. Below are some fuel-saving tips to help you beat the gas crunch.

Good car maintenance improves your mileage. A regular tune up of your enginecan boost your mileage by as much as 40 percent. Clean and change your air filter. A dirty one blocks the engine air flow which is crucial to fuel economy and engine performance. Dealers also recommend using the right grade of motor oil for your car. Be sure to get an “energy conserving” labeled motor oil because it has friction reducing additives.

Keep tire pressure as recommended by the car manufacturer. This is usually found in the owner’s manual or posted in the driver’s side door jamb. While keeping your tires properly pumped makes the ride a bit rougher, you cut down the tires’ rolling resistance.

Jack-rabbit or abrupt starts waste fuel about twice as much compared with gradual starts. Keeping an alert eye on the road helps you avoid unnecessary speedups, slowdowns, and stops. Steady driving with constant speed saves fuel. If you’re on the highway, use the cruise control. Subaru dealers Edmonton has offer cars with overdrive gears that save gas.

Instead of multiple short roundtrips, combine all your errands into one trip. It cuts down on travel distance and fuel usage. Plan your route ahead of time by choosing roads with less traffic and lower speed limits. Consider as well the advantages of commuting and carpools: reduced car wear and tear and reduced fuel expenses. If the place of work, school, or market is quite near, walk or ride a bike. Even Subaru dealers Calgary has will understand this.

If you’re planning to buy a car, check out the car’s rated fuel efficiency. Although they cost more, consider buying hybrid electric cars. Their top of the line fuel efficiency is a good investment that saves you money in the long run. Keep in mind, too, that a smaller car with manual transmission is a great fuel saver. However, if you prefer recent car models, then do a bit of research and check out the most fuel efficient cars on the market. Subaru dealers Edmonton has offer cars which earned high ratings for fuel economy.
