Tips For More Efficient Driving

Posted at Wed, Jun 21, 2017 2:45 PM

Our #Tim’sTruckCapital&AutoSales dealership in Epsom would like to share some tips that will save you money at the gas pump. We also invite you to visit our dealership to see our extensive inventory of used cars, trucks, crossovers and SUVs. We specialize in used trucks for sale and have one of the largest inventories in New England. Our website is updated daily, so you know you’re seeing the latest vehicles. Let us know what you’re looking for so we can help you find it.

Here are some tips for a long vehicle life:

Drive at a steady speed
Avoiding sudden stops and starts and remember: driving the speed limit uses less gas. Make sure you’re aware of your surroundings and know the speed limit.

Stay in tune
Keep your vehicle as well tuned as possible. A poorly tuned engine can increase fuel consumption by up to 50 percent! Regular tune-ups and having clean air filters will prevent car trouble later. It will also help you burn less gas and pollute less.

Keep your tires properly inflated
Did you know that nearly 36% of cars are driven with tires underinflated? Check your tire pressure monthly with a tire gauge. Underinflated tires reduce fuel efficiency by up to 2 percent for each pound that the tires are not properly inflated.

Use your air conditioner less
Your vehicle’s air conditioner uses engine-generated power, so only use it when necessary for short periods. Parking in the shade and using a reflective windshield shade helps keep your car cool on hot days.

Unload your trunk
Avoid carrying extra weight in your car. Extra weight lowers your fuel economy, so unless you’re planning on playing that day, leave those golf clubs at home.
