Fuel prices are increasing day by day. Now it is a good time to improve your mileage and save money. According to my research i found these 5 important steps which should be taken to improve your fuel economy.

1. Purchase a fuel-efficient car

The best way to save money on fuel is to drive a fuel-efficient car. It’s probably impractical to replace your current car for something that costs less to run, but if you’re in the market for a new vehicle, keep fuel economy in mind.

2. Keep your vehicle well maintained

A car in poor running condition will use more gas than one that has been tuned up. According to checklist at Advance Auto Parts, a dirty air filter can reduce mileage up to 20%. Spark plugs in poor condition can reduce mileage up to 12%.

3. Keep tires properly inflated

Underinflated tires aren’t just dangerous — they devour fuel economy by as much as 25%! (I know this from experience — whenever I notice a drop in mileage, my tires are usually low pressured). Also please take a note that overinflated tires aren’t efficient, either. Kindly keep your tires balanced and in alignment. 

4. Reduce drag

About half of your vehicle’s energy is expended overcoming air resistance. (The other half is expended in acceleration). Reduce your car’s workload — remove anything that might cause drag: luggage racks, bike racks, ski racks, etc,

5. Ride at Constant Speed (Cruise Control System)

We have found that the best way to improve fuel efficiency is to accelerate slowly and apply brake from a safe distance to avoid dragging. Aside from purchasing a new vehicle, this is the single most effective step you can take to reduce your costs.
