How to Maximize Fuel Efficiently
Posted on Dec 26, 2018
These days, the prices of goods and services are continued to increase. And the price of fuel is not an exception. The price of gas increases almost every day. There are sometimes that there are rollbacks,but its effect is not often felt. Fuel efficiency is not an option today. It is a must, now that its price is continuously increasing, together with all the other basic necessities.
If you want to save on gas, here are fuel efficiency tips to help you.
1.) The fewer the trips, the better
Make fewer trips if possible. A car that has been parked for a long time consumes more fuel for the first five miles or so. It is much better to plan the drive. Say, for example, you need to go to the supermarket to buy something. Before you go, check if there are other things that you need to buy, so that you don’t have to go back to the supermarket again. That is just another waste of time, energy and gas of course.
2.) Avoid the rush hour
Being stuck in the middle of a traffic jam is not only frustrating, but it is also expensive too. Every time you start and stop, your vehicle consumes more fuel than necessary. And if you're stuck in traffic, there will be lots of starts and stop which means more fuel will be wasted. If you can’t avoid the rush hour, then drive smoothly and steadily in a fixed slow speed rather than stopping and accelerating. If you want a car that is ideal for this type of traffic, we suggest you buy a hybrid car that uses less fuel.
3.) Check the tire pressure on a regular basis
The car’s tire pressure affects the fuel consumption of your car.If the tire has less pressure, the more fuel is needed to move the car off the road.Regularly check your car’s tire if it has the required pressure. In that way, you will save on gas and will also prevent your tire from unusual wear and tear.
4.) Don’t step on the accelerator too far
If you’re pushing the accelerator too far, your car’s engine will need more fuel than necessary.Most especially, if you’re pressing the accelerator to its limit because you don’t want to change it intothe lower gear.If you’re thinking that by doing so will lessen your car’s gasconsumption, you’re wrong. It will only lead to more fuel usage. It is more advisable to buy a car that has automatic gearbox because in choosing the right gear, there is a high chance that it will do a much better job than yours.
5.) Avoid carrying unnecessary weight
The heavier the weight of the car, the more fuel you use. That is why it is recommended to avoid carrying too much unnecessary weight in your car. It only cost you more on gas.So if you have things stuck on your trunk that you don’t need or you don’t use, better get it off your car. Weight in relation to fuel usage is also the reason why it is preferable to have small and lighter cars (but it also depends on the engine).Another pro tip: when filling up gas, it is much better to fill with less fuel because it also has some weight in it.
These tips will help you save money on gas and save gas consumption as well. So remember these five helpful tips because searching for ways to save fuel and money has never been more relevant.
