Modifying your driving habits can save you loads at the pump!

Prices at the pump are soaring and now that the holidays are here, most of us will be doing a lot more running around than usual.

That said, there are some simple steps you can take to maximize your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Here are a few tips that'll pay off at the pump:

Great Service
Regular maintenance will help increase your car's fuel efficiency and it will also extend the life of your vehicle.

Check & Inflate
Keep your tires inflated to the proper pressure. You’ll find the recommended PSI listed on the inside of your driver’s door.

Slow Down
Speeding increases fuel consumption by as much as 50% so take your time when you’re out running errands.

Don't Brake Down
Don't constantly jam on your brakes and then rapidly accelerate as it’s a huge waste of fuel. It also causes wear and tear on your brakes.

HAppY Place
Download an app such as GasBuddy to help you keep track of the cheapest gas prices in your area.

Lighten Up
Remove any unnecessary items from your vehicle as the extra weight will reduce fuel efficiency.

Put It In Park
The best way to save on gas is to keep your car in park so before you climb behind the wheel, ask yourself if you can walk instead!

Just a few small changes to your driving habits can save you a small fortune on gas and maintenance. Maximizing your vehicle’s fuel efficiency will not only save you money at the pump but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment!
