How You Can Improve Gas Mileage

With gas prices continuing to remain at an all-time high, you’re probably looking for ways to keep some cash in your wallet and not spend it at the gas pump. It’s always a good feeling to save money!

At Patty Peck Honda we have a wide variety of fuel efficient vehicles, like the Honda Civic, Fit, Accord, CR-Z and Insight — these vehicles offer over 30 MPG. On top of owning a fuel-saving car, take a look at these tips to see how you could improve your gas mileage even further:

-Slow It Down: As your speed increases, your drag increases. Driving 62 mph v.s. 75 mph can reduce fuel consumption by about 15%.

-Don’t Accelerate or Brake Hard: By anticipating the traffic and applying slow steady acceleration and braking, fuel economy may increase.

-Keep Tires Properly Inflated: Keep tire air pressure at the level recommended for your vehicle. Not sure? No worries, we can help! Take a look at our Tire Center and we can help you with any questions you may have.

-Keep the A/C to a Minimum: When the air conditioner is on it puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used. If it isn’t necessary, try just using the fan without the A/C button on.

-Keep Windows Closed: Windows open, especially at highway speeds, increase drag and result in decreased fuel economy.

-Service Vehicle Regularly: Proper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs or low fluid levels. We offer a wide range of car repairs and service updates including general repairs and maintenance. Whether you need an oil change, transmission service, brakes, or even engine repair, Patty Peck Honda has you covered. Visit us at our Service Department.

-Use Cruise Control: Maintaining a constant speed over long distances often saves gas.

-Take Out the Heavy Stuff: Remove any excess weight from your backseats or trunk. You can also avoid heavy loads while traveling by packing lightly for long-distance trips.

-Avoid Long Idles: If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle for this time.
