5 Tips to Create Fuel Efficient Driving Habits

Whether you are on your daily commute or headed out for an adventure or vacation, these tips can help you use your car’s fuel as well as possible:

  1. Smooth Acceleration: As you start to accelerate, gently press the gas pedal; the harder you press, the more fuel you are using. Taking just five seconds to bring your vehicle up to 10 mph from a standstill can help you save money.
  2. Plan Your Trip Around The Traffic: Sitting in stop-and-go traffic is inefficient use of your fuel, and causes stress on your vehicle’s drivetrain.Try avoiding rush hour by leaving 15 minutes early, and when you have time, try to take shortcuts to reach your destination sans the hassle.
  3. Avoid High Speeds: Traveling at higher speeds uses more fuel. Longmont drivers can achieve the best possible fuel economy on the highways by keeping your speed between 55 and 65 mph.
  4. Coasting to a Stop: If there’s no one ahead of you and you need to come to a stop, just take your foot off the gas pedal and let your car coast to a stop. How can you save fuel while driving on hills? As you are headed uphill, reduce your speed, and again, use your car’s forward momentum to coast downhill.
  5. Use Air Conditioning Wisely: Using the air conditioning system when you are driving at higher speeds has little effect on your fuel economy, but when you are at low speeds, try to use the recirculate function or roll down the windows and enjoy the breeze in Westminster.
