A few simple things you can do to help save gas when you drive!
The best way to save gas, according to The Auto Club of Southern California, is to drive smooth and even. Basically this means, leave your lead foot (if you have one, that is,) at home because that lead foot can waste 20% to 40% of your fuel economy.
Check your gas cap. About 17% of cars have missing, broken or loose-fitting gas caps. This can cause gas to evaporate.
Check Your Tires. Under inflated tires can cost a mile or two per gallon.
Check Your Spark Plugs. A dirty spark plug can cause misfiring, which wastes fuel.
Check Your Air Filter. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.
Slow Down. Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60mph.
Avoid carrying unneeded heavy items. An extra 100 pounds can cut fuel efficiency by a percent or two.
