How To Improve Your Gas Mileage
Keeping the speed between
30 and 60 mph when possible lets the engine
run at the optimal rate and improves your gas mileage.
Avoid idling, especially if you have a large engine. Try not to
accelerate and break all the time (even though
it's fun), driving at even speed can increase gas mileage with
as much as 30%. Keep your car and especially the engine in good shape and
it will use less fuel
fixing any fuel leaks will improve your gas mileage
and prevent the ground from getting polluted. Check the tyre pressure regularily. Too low pressure will
decrease your fuel mileage
If you live in en area with
freezing winter temperatures using
an engine block heater before starting will improve fuel mileage
and decrease strain on the engine. Buy a more fuel efficient car, or use a motorcycle if you're
alone. Motorcycles often use only half as much fuel as a car
but that's easy to forget when it's raining.
Diesel engines use less fuel than the equivalent gas powered engine but
may not be your ideal choice for a variety of other reasons. Walk or take the bike, you will get exercise at the same time. Driving
short quarter mile trips uses a lot of fuel and is hard on the engine.
