maintenance (or lack of maintenance) can impact your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
Here are a few tips for saving fuel and funds:
up! Check the air pressure in your tires weekly and top them off if
they’re low. It takes just a few minutes and can save you about $75 each
year in gas.
up! The best gas mileage is usually achieved at speeds below 60 miles
per hour. Slowing down just a little from 65 mph to 60 mph can save around
20 cents per gallon!

possible arrange your work schedule to avoid commuting during rush hour
or telecommute a couple of days each week.
up! Let gas mileage be the #1 priority on your new car shopping
list. The U.S. Department of
Energy’s website has good information on fuel-efficient vehicles.

the bus. You may also get a discount on car insurance in addition to
