Improve Your Fuel Efficiency

Your Seattle European auto repair shop brings you 4 tips to help you improve your car’s fuel efficiency and save you money at the gas station:

  1. Keep your tires optimally inflated.  Under inflated tires can lower your car’s gas milage.  Your car’s tire pressures should be maintained at the auto manufacturer’s pressure recommendation.  You can find this information in your owner’s manuel or on a label inside the driverside door. 
  2. Don’t speed.  According to the US Department of Energy, speeds over 60 mph can reduce your car’s gas milage.  Also, avoid accelerations and rapid decelerations which will significantly decrease your car’s fuel efficiency.
  3. Don’t idle. If you’re in your car waiting for the drawbridge to lower, or for the train to pass, turn off your car’s engine.  
  4. Do regular maintenance tasks.  Changing your oil, checking your fluids, belts and hoses, battery and terminals, and tires can help your car run smoothly and efficiently.  And if you discover a problem, addressing it quickly can help you avoid turning a minor repair in to a major one.
