SAVE GAS MONEY THIS SUMMER

You may be asking yourself “how can I save gas more efficiently?”  Well, challenge yourself to become a different driver by changing your driving style and focusing on the long-term savings.  Here’s how to do it! 

Accelerate gradually– If you anticipate when you are going to need to accelerate and do so in a slow and controlled manner you can save yourself up to 20%. 

Anticipate stops- Learning to anticipate your stopping and braking can drastically reduce the amount of gas you burn. Braking suddenly can force you to use more fuel to get the vehicle back to speed. 

Organize your trips- Why drive your car two or three times when you could schedule all your errands into one trip, and not need to go out multiple times? This not only cuts down on the amount of gas you use but it can also free up more of your time to do the things you want to do! 

Stop speeding- Statistics show that a vehicle traveling at 55MPH will achieve up to 15% better fuel economy than the same vehicle traveling at 65 MPH. Traveling the speed limit saves you on fuel and can also make the road a safer place. 

Turn engine off- Unless you know your car is going to move within about 30 seconds, turn off your engine to improve gas mileage. Idling for longer than 30 seconds wastes fuel. 

Use navigation- Using a navigation system can improve your fuel economy because you are then less likely to take a longer route or get lost. If your car doesn’t have one then you can, of course, come see us to fix that! https://www.paradisemotors.net/
