From Upkeep to Driving Technique

  1. Follow the posted speed limit: It is there for a reason – to keep you safe for the specific conditions of the road. Many cars achieve their best mileage between 45 and 60 mph, so following the speed limit or safely driving slightly below will help improve fuel efficiency.
  2. Drive calmly: Passing cars in front of you and weaving in and out of traffic requires excessive acceleration and frequent braking, both of which decrease mileage. Driving calmly is vital for safety and important for fuel efficiency.
  3. Keep your tires properly inflated: Checking your tire pressure once a month will avoid subjecting your tires to excess wear and tear, along with helping your car perform more efficiently in regards to fuel.
