Top 3 Tricks to Increase Your Fuel Economy in Racine WI

You’re on the go constantly, which means you depend on your car to get you where you need to go. Sometimes it’s hard to pay attention to details, but when it comes to fuel efficiency – it pays to do so. Let’s look at some techniques on how to increase your fuel economy in Racine WI. Some of these include:

  • Avoid fast acceleration from a stop. Your Volkswagen is fun to drive, but you can really use up a lot of gas by “jackrabbit” acceleration from a stop. Take a nice deep breath, relax, and drive smoothly. Your budget will be thankful.
  • Keep your tires properly inflated. Checking air pressure takes very little time, as does adding some air to your tires. Did you know that low air pressure can reduce your fuel efficiency by 3.3 percent? That’s what the US Department of Energy has stated. You don’t want to add 3% to your gas bill – and also wear your tires out 10% faster.
  • Keep up on your car’s maintenance. Keeping oil and other fluids replenished and clean makes your engine run at peak efficiency. It also increases the overall life of your car. Do your gas and overall car budget a favor and keep up with manufacturer recommendations.
