Get to Know Your Engine

There are some basic rules that will allow you to spend less fuel and money that aren't difficult to apply to your daily life. Saving on fuel is not only good for your pocket, but also for the environment and your car might be prone to spend more fuel than the quantity specified by its manufacturer. Therefore, you should find out the current expenses and fuel-consumption levels of your vehicle before you decide to take action and perform any measure to save fuel.

Lighten the Load

Fuel expense will increase for everything that adds considerable weight to your vehicle; the more loaded your car is, the more fuel it consumes. You don't need to get rid of the spare wheel, but it would be fitting if you take out the items you carry in the trunk and you never end up using; like if you have a luggage rack on top, removing it to reduce some weight could be a good idea.

Fill Your Tank for Less

Fuel prices can vary widely between gas stations, so it's worth checking out which gas stations provide affordable prices in your area or whereabouts before filling your tank.

Be a Mindful Driver

Your driving habits are one of the most important aspects to evaluate if you want to improve your gasoline consumption and driving calmly and at a steady speed will help you in achieving this result. You should try to drive at a constant speed, for as much as possible and the less you accelerate and brake, the more efficient your driving will be.

Forget about Speed, Drive with Consumption in Mind

Another good tip is to try to anticipate the route as you drive so you can avoid excessive braking and stopping the car completely because starting the vehicle from scratch consumes more gasoline. Plus, this will not only save you from spending more but also, it will definitely prevent you from suffering an accident or car crash.

Maintenance Plays a Huge Role When It Comes to Saving on Gasoline

Keeping your car in shape will make it more fuel-efficient as over time, the tires will start to lose pressure/air. To improve fuel economy, check your car's tire pressure frequently and keep it at the correct level. If the wheels don't have the proper pressure, friction against the ground will increase during the car's movement, which will increases consumption. Thus it's important to perform regular upkeeps and checkups on your car. Other things to evaluate are the oil filter, the fuel filter, and the air filter. Look at the manufacturer's recommendations to see how often you have to change them; as this varies for different brands and vehicles. It should be mentioned that turning off the car's air conditioner might help you as well since this device runs on fuel and turning it on for moments when you really need it will help you economize a bit.

Plan Your Route before You Hit the Road

Also, whenever possible, plan and visualize your route and its shortcuts to avoid heavy traffic and to make the trip as short as possible to consume less fuel. If you are running errands, try to do your best and make the most on the same trip.

Mind the Temperature

A cold engine uses more fuel than a heated one, so it's more efficient to take a longer trip with more tasks accomplished instead of going on several different trips. If you have friends or coworkers you can take on the same trip, it's a good idea to share the car and the expenses from time to time.
