3 Ways to Improve Your Gas Mileage

1. Avoid aggressive driving: Speeding, rapid acceleration, and perpetual braking waste gas. Driving at a constant speed can lower your gas mileage by up to 33 percent on the highway. Defensive drivers can save up to $1.35 per gallon compared to their speedy counterparts.
2. Clear the air: Your car's air filter prevents airborne impurities from wreaking havoc on your engine. Not only can replacing a clogged air filter save you up to $0.41 on the gallon, but it can also safeguard your engine.
3. Inflate your tires, not your MPGs: By properly inflating your tires, you can save up to 3.3 percent on your miles per gallon (MPG), which equals about $0.12 per gallon. Check your owner's manual for the correct pressure per square inch (psi) for your car's tire size. Appropriately inflated tires results in better gas mileage, improved safety, and longer lasting tires.
