Improve fuel economy

 


The US government has a website dedicated to helping us to use less fuel. It presents the cost savings in a way drivers can relate to, no matter what kind of vehicle we drive. Here’s an example:

Having your engine properly tuned can save up to 4%. If you’re paying three-fifty for a gallon of gas, you could save fourteen cents a gallon.

Dollars Per Gallon              $3.00  $3.50  $4.00
Tune Up 4%                          0.12    0.14    0.16

Replacing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve economy by up to forty percent for auto owners. That’s a whooping dollar forty in savings per gallon.

Dollars Per Gallon                          $3.00   $3.50   $4.00
Faulty O2 Oxygen Sensor 40%       1.20     1.40     1.60

Chances are that if your vehicle oxygen sensor is kaput your check engine light will come on. Now, there’s any number of things that could cause your check engine light to come on besides oxygen sensor problems. But if it’s on, get it checked out as soon as you can.

Here’s an easy one for busy drivers: Inflate your tires to the recommended pressure. That could save you three percent or eleven cents a gallon. Even a little drop in pressure will cost you at the pump so check your vehicle tires every week.

Your vehicle manufacturer has recommended a specific weight of motor oil. The recommendation is based on your automotive engine design and will give you the best protection. Using a heavier weight could cost one to two percent in reduced fuel economy, or up to seven cents a gallon.

Here are some free gas saving tips: Don’t drive aggressively, drive within the speed limit and remove excess weight (junk in the trunk) from your vehicle. These can add up to a dollar or more per gallon.
