Have your car tuned up regularly by a reliable mechanic to keep it running efficiently.
Combine your errands to avoid driving your car longer distances or more often than necessary.
Have your tires aligned. Poor tire alignment forces your car’s engine to work harder.
Check your tires on a regular basis to make sure they are properly inflated. Tires that are properly inflated last longer, reducing friction and wasting less gas.
Check your air filter. A clean air filter can improve gas mileage.
Follow the speed limit, especially on the highway. Faster speeds eat up more gas.
Keep your speed steady. Slowing down and speeding up too often wastes fuel.
Reduce idling. An idling engine burns up more gas than it takes to start a car.
