If you like to save money, now you can.

By following these good-sense driving and car maintenance tips, you will save gas, help preserve our environment, plus put money back in your pocket.

Save Money By:
  • Replacing air filters. A clogged air filter causes your engine to work harder and your vehicle to become less fuel efficient. Replacing a dirty air filter can increase your mileage by 10%, or 15cents/gallon.
  • Don't skimp on maintenance. Be serious about auto care. Your car's performance depends on it. Always follow the manufacturer-recommended maintenance. Your car's designed to run a certain way. If you neglect it, it won't be as efficient.
  • Change the oil regularly and use the proper oil. Proper oil viscosity (5w30 over 10w30) can be a 1-2% increase in mileage, or 4-11cents/gallon.
  • Avoid idling. Idling gets 0mpg on your vehicle. Turn the engine off if you have to sit more than a minute.
  • Watch the speed limit. Driving over 60mph decreases fuel economy. Use your cruise control on long stretches of road. This helps maintain a steady speed and avoids unnecessary acceleration.
  • Fill up with lower octane fuel. Buy the lowest octane appropriate for your car, unless your vehicle requires premium. Pricey premium won't boost your economy.
  • Don't "top off" when filling your tank. Additional gas will slop and seep off. Don't waste $$ on the gas you won't use. When the nozzle clicks off, stop pumping.
  • Make sure the gas cap is tight. Gas will evaporate from your car's tank if it has an escape. A loose, missing, or damaged cap can cause you to lose up to 30 gals per year.
  • Keep your tires at the correct pressure. Underinflated tires can reduce fuel mileage and tire life by as much as 15%. Underinflated tires create more resistance and make your engine work harder. Proper tire inflation can increase mileage up to 3.3%, that's 3cents/lb. which can save up to 11cents/gallon.
  • Keep your engine in tune. A poorly running engine can reduce your mileage by 4%. A misfiring spark plug can reduce your car's fuel efficiency by 30%.
  • Eliminate as much drag as possible. Make sure your wheels are in proper alignment, roof racks or bicycle racks removed when not being used, etc.
