It seems like just when gas prices go down, they're already right back where they started. With the days of paying under $2.00 per gallon long gone, the best way to protect your wallet is by improving your car's fuel economy.
With that in mind, here are three simple steps you can take to save money at the pump:
Lighten Your Load—Weight is one of the biggest causes for loss of energy when driving. An extra one hundred pounds can increase your fuel consumption by about 2%. Going along with this, you should also make sure your tires are properly inflated.
Pick Up New Tires—Speaking of tires, if your current ones are worn out, head in to our Service Center today and pick up a new set. Narrow, Low Rolling-Resistance Tires can increase your fuel economy by a few percentage points simply by making it easier for your tire to roll along the road surface.
Time for a Tune-Up—Like anything that gets used, your car need a little maintenance and TLC to keep performing at its peak. Regularly getting your oil changed, investing in new spark plugs every 30,000 miles, and changing your air filter at least once a year can help you save $200 every year!
Sometimes, however, the best switch you can make is from a gas-guzzler to a more fuel-efficient vehicle. Come in today to check out great new cars like the 2017 Fusion Energi SE and the 2017 C-Max Energi and see what a new Ford can do for you!
