Getting the best fuel economy from your vehicle

March 14, 2012

Servicing your car on a regular basis is one of the most important things you can do to maximize the fuel efficiency of your vehicle.  Driving a vehicle with worn out spark plugs can reduce fuel mileage by as much as 4 percent.  Replacing a clogged air filter can improve your car's mileage by as much as 10 percent.  Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent.

Keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure will improve fuel mileage.  If each tire were underinflated by 5 psi (pounds per square inch), your fuel mileage could drop by as much as 2 percent.

Do not keep unnecessary items in you vehicle, especially heavy ones.  An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your mileage by up to 2 percent.  The mileage reduction is based on the percentage of extra weight relative to the vehicle weight and affects lighter vehicles more than heavier ones.

Aggressive driving, such as speeding and rapid acceleration, can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and by 5 percent around town.  Drive sensibly.
