5 Ways to Save Gas! Today, gas prices are skyrocketing, which means that you and your family are forced to think about the costs associated with high prices at the pump. Although we don’t have enough lobbying power to make the oil companies lower their prices, Parker Custer wants to give you a few fuel saving tips that might help ease the pain. 1. Make Sure Your Tires Are Properly Inflated By checking your tire’s air pressure, you can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. That is a lot of money being drained out of your tank. At Parker Custer, we will be happy to check your air pressure for free. Stop by anytime! 2. Fill Up With The Right Gas Very few cars actually require premium gas in order to run efficiently, however, more than 20% of all fuel sold in the US is premium. You can check your owner’s manual to see what octane level your car requires. 3. Use the Correct Motor Oil Grade Each car has a recommended Grade per manufacturer’s standards. Using the wrong grade can reduce your gas mileage anywhere from 1-2% (www.fueleconomy.org). 4. Drive Slower When you speed up quickly and brake frequently, your car and wallet pay the price! Gently accelerating and braking is a better option. On the highway, put on the cruise control. Steady and consistent is the key. By slowing down to 55 from 65 mph, you can actually improve your gas mileage by up to 15%! 5. Bring Your Car in for Regular Check-Ups Not only does a regular check-up improve the performance of your vehicle, but it also maximizes gas mileage. Checking the tires, transmission fluids, shocks, spark plugs and other relevant parts, you are saving in the long run!
