Summer Gas Saving Tips

When you’re thinking about ways to save on gas, the first one that likely comes to mind is to find the cheapest gas prices. While searching for the cheapest gas prices is a good start, there are other things you can consider as well. Before you begin tackling Windham trips, let’s take a look at some summer gas saving tips you can utilize:

  • Fuel-Efficient Vehicle: One of the most overlooked ways to save on gas is to find a fuel-efficient vehicle. If it’s been a while since you’ve upgraded your ride, it might be time to consider purchasing a new vehicle. This is because new vehicles have improved on performance and fuel efficiency to help you save on gas.
  • Air Conditioning: Many drivers think that to save on gas, you should avoid using your air conditioning altogether. However, this isn’t always the case. You should roll your windows down at lower speeds and use the air conditioner at higher speeds since modern vehicles will experience extra drag with the windows down at high speeds.
  • Driving Habits: Avoid sudden usage of the gas and brake pedal. Slowly come to a stop, and more importantly, don’t mash on the accelerator to get up to speed. The more abrupt you are with your driving, the more fuel you’ll use.
  • Properly Inflated Tires: We suggest you check the air pressure in your tires. Improperly inflated tires could result in not only extra tire wear, but also decrease fuel-economy as well. Visit our service team if you need assistance with this!
