With today's high gas prices, it's worth taking a few minutes out of your day to make minor modifications that will improve your gas mileage.
- Keep your tires properly inflated and check them frequently.
- Keep your front suspension and steering in proper alignment.
- Use the thinnest viscosity oil that your car’s manufacturer recommends.
- Keep your engine in proper mechanical condition.
- Keep your engine in tune and make sure the air and fuel filters are clean.
- Make sure your brakes are not dragging.
- Repair body damage. That crunched front fender adds aerodynamic drag — just ask any race car driver.
- Don’t use premium fuel if your car does not require it; using it is an unnecessary expense.
- Don’t waste your money on those late night “as seen on TV” products that are supposed to increase your mileage.
