Get the Most Out of Your Fuel This Summer

Saving money at the pump is always a challenge, but can be even more so in the summer. The summer heat can take a toll on your vehicle's performance and its ability to save fuel. Best 4 Engines in Denton has some tips to help your vehicle save fuel this summer.

Limit Your Use of Air Conditioning

Even though the heat can be overwhelming in the summer, limiting your use of air conditioning can help you reduce your fuel usage. Using the air conditioning consistently can reduce your fuel economy up to 25 percent. Instead, roll down your windows when driving at lower speeds. If you're driving on a highway at high speeds, it's safe to use your air conditioning since rolling down the windows will cause aerodynamic drag and reduce fuel economy. When possible, park your vehicle in the shade to lower the temperatures inside. Not only will this reduce your need for air conditioning, it will also reduce the rate at which your gas evaporates.

Stay Safe and Save

Safe driving techniques can also help you save gas. Avoid speeding away after coming to a stop. Instead, accelerate slowly to prevent burning too much fuel on take off. As you drive through traffic, avoid getting to close to other vehicles. Sudden stops will cause your vehicle to burn gas quicker. If you leave enough space between your vehicle and the one in front of you, you have more time to ease into your stops and reduce gas consumption.

Lighten Your Load

The heavier your vehicle is, the more gas it will burn. If you're taking an end of summer road trip, pack smart. Avoid carrying items that are very heavy and that will cause your vehicle to burn fuel faster. Cleaning your car and removing unnecessary items from the trunk and the cabin may help lighten your load and help you save fuel. Large items on the roof of your car, such as bike racks, should be removed if they're not being used. Make your car as light as possible in order to conserve fuel.
