How To Improve Your Gas Mileage

  1. Keeping the speed between 30 and 60 mph when possible lets the engine run at the optimal rate and decreases the gas mileage.
  2. Avoid idling, especially if you have a large engine.
  3. Try not to accelerate and break all the time (even though it's fun), driving at even speed can increase gas mileage with as much as 30%.
  4. Keep your car and especially the engine in good chape and it will use less fuel
  5. Obviously fixing any fuel leaks will improve your gas mileage and prevent the ground from getting polluted.
  6. Check the tyre pressure regularily. Too low pressure will decrease your fuel mileage
  7. If you live in en area with freezing winter weather using an engine block heater before starting will improve fuel mileage and decrease strain on the engine.
  8. Buy a more fuel efficient car, or use a motorcycle if you're alone. Motorcycles often use only half as much fuel as a car but that's easy to forget when it's raining.
  9. Diesel engines use less fuel than the equivalent gas powered engine but may not be your ideal choice for a variety of other reasons.
  10. Walk or take the bike, you will get exercise at the same time. Driving short quarter mile trips uses a lot of fuel and is hard on the engine.
