Car Performance Tips That Will Save You on Gas

If you’re finding problems with affording gas, there are ways that you can lessen the amount of gas your car uses. Improving the performance of your car not only makes it run better, but it helps save on gas as well. A lot of ideas to save gas is common sense. For instance, always park your car in the shade if you can. The hotter your car becomes, the more fuel it’ll be using. If you have a garage, make sure you keep your car in it. Make sure you keep that gas cap tightened up, as well. The more secure the cap is, the less you’ll have to worry about gas leaking out or evaporating.

Pump up your tires every chance you get. Your tires will wear down quickly if you drive around with them being flat. This will cause your car’s gas mileage to decrease up to 15%. Obviously, the engine will have to work harder to keep your car going, thus burning the fuel more quickly. Speaking of tires, you should check their pressure at least once a month. You can simply buy a digital gauge. Look in your owner’s manual to find out the recommended pressure for your model. Use that as a basis to go by when using your digital gauge. You should keep your tires inflated, even if the pressure is just a little bit below what it should be.

Keep a close eye on your air filters as well, and replace them when needed. Air filters in the engine can become clogged with insects and dirt, causing the engine to work harder. According to experts, a clogged air filter can decrease your gas milage by 10%, and will cost you an extra 15 cents a gallon.

Your car’s performance depends on proper maintenance and care. Keep up with your car’s performance often. Read the care guidelines in your manual, and make sure you go by them. No matter what type of car you have, it has to run a certain way and you should never neglect it.
