Save Money by Making Your Vehicle More Fuel Efficient

We all would like to save money, and there are a few simple strategies that you can use to save on the amount of gas that you have to put in your vehicle each week. When your vehicle isn't maintained, it might not be the most fuel efficient. Also, if your driving habits are reckless, you'll see that behavior in the amount of gas that you have to put in your vehicle, too.

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to make your vehicle more fuel efficient is to keep the air in your tires at the manufacturer's recommendations. Not only does this make your vehicle safer, but it also means that your engine doesn't have to work as hard. Underinflated tires create drag that your engine has to compensate for.

You should also be aware of the effects of speeding up and slowing down. When you speed up to pass a car, your vehicle has to work harder. When you apply the brakes, that takes energy, too.
