• fuel saving tipsUse regular gas in your vehicle unless it requires premium fuel. Using premium fuel is a waste of money if your owner’s manual doesn’t state that your vehicle requires it.
  • To prevent fuel expansion and possible overflow in hot weather, don’t top off your gas tank.
  • It’s a good idea to keep track of gas mileage. If a decrease in fuel economy is noticed, your vehicle may not be operating at its maximum performance level.
  • If your gas cap needs to be replaced, be sure it is the correct one for your vehicle. An improperly fitting gas cap can reduce fuel economy and increase emissions.
  • Keeping spark plugs in good condition will help to increase fuel economy.
  • Check your fuel and air filters at least twice annually. Dirty filters not only increase fuel consumption but can also cause poor engine performance.
  • Tires should always be inflated to the proper pressure. Besides causing premature wear and being a safety hazard, under-inflated tires can cut fuel economy by up to 2 percent per pound of pressure below the manufacturer’s recommended level.
  • save gasDon’t delay having your vehicle serviced if the “check engine” or “service needed” light comes on.
  • Your vehicle should be serviced on a regular basis by a certified technician. This will ensure opportunities for regular monitoring of the components of your vehicle which affect fuel consumption.
