Fuel economy? It still matters

Although we are no longer seeing gas prices as high as we did during the recession, saving money at the pump still matters to those commuting to work, or just going out for a night on the town. According to AAA, the average price for regular unleaded gas is about $2.42. Comparatively speaking, at the height of the recession in 2008, the national average price for regular unleaded gas was about $4.00. Thankfully, those prices are well behind us; the prices we pay today are far more reasonable, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to get the best fuel economy possible. How do we go about this? Let’s start with properly maintaining your vehicle; not only will you improve your fuel economy, but you’ll also extend the life of your vehicle.

1) Use the correct gas; your vehicle’s owner’s manual will advise you of the correct octane.
2) Be sure that all tires are properly inflated.
3) Change your motor oil, and air filters, as recommended.
4) Avoid excessive weight in your vehicle.

By following these tips, you’re guaranteed to see an improvement in your fuel economy.
