A lot of people think that the only way yo improve your fuel economy is to buy a hybrid car, or another vehicle that's specifically designed to be fuel efficient. However, there are several things you can do to save money with your current vehicle.

PRLog - May 4, 2011 - Through proper servicing and simple driving habits, you will be able to maintain top performance of your vehicle, preserve gas, and ultimately, save money all at the same time.  Gas is expensive these days and there are no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are a couple of ways that you, the driver, can alter driving tendencies in order to maximize your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.

Also, the U.S. Department of Energy tells us that another way to reduce excess gas usage is to reduce the transportation load of our vehicles.  In particular, lugging excessive weight or unneeded items around is burning more gas and cutting into your pockets.  It is possible to save up to 2% on your gas spending for every 100 pounds you decrease in your vehicle’s transportation load.

Another recommended practice is to obey the manufacturer’s recommendations in regards to viscosity and oil changes.  This information is available in your owner’s manual and can also be found online.  By following these established regulations you will keep your motor running at top efficiency and as a result, save gas.  Denver area Fisher Auto services all makes and models.
