Some Easy Steps To Easily Help You Improve Your Gas Mileage

Apr 1, 2008
There are many times when a person will find themselves wondering how they can improve their gas mileage and even though there isn't really anything anyone can do about the gas prices there is something that you can do to get better fuel efficiency. You can trade whatever car you have now in for a better car that's gets better mpg. I would consider getting a 4 cylinder for the high prices that we have today. Even though I would rather drive a small pickup the little cars that are around today are getting great gas mileage and that's even better if the car is turbocharged.

I have heard that if you get your oil changed it will give you better gas mileage but that's only getting changed every 3 months or every 3000 miles. So to me that wouldn't really be saving any gas because it doesn't sound like oil and can save you gas mileage. The thing that I would think would save gas mileage is what they tested on Myth Busters and that is less than 45mph you should ride with your windows down and the a/c off but if you are going over 45mph and creating drag then you should have the windows rolled up and the a/c on. That's just what they tested and it proved to save way more gas up to over 30 miles with the a/c on over 45mph.

Your tires need to also be at the right pressure or they will be causing you to lose gas mileage as well. When your tires are not to the right tire pressure then they will have to work harder to grip the ground to get the car moving. So if your tires are at the perfect pressure then you will not be forcing your tires to move so hard and they will move easier making the gas mileage better in a way. You would be getting better with perfect pressure then when you never check your tire pressure is what the point is.

You should not keep a lot of stuff in your trunk because more weight equals more drag so you will be getting less mpg. So you might want to clean your car out of all the garbage, trash and other things not needed so your car will produce better gas mileage.

You should never turn off the car if you are just going in a store for a split second or less because your car will get better gas mileage if the car is already warm where as it is cold. So just keeps the car running if you are just going into the post office for a minute.
