Tips for making your vehicle more fuel efficient

Properly Inflate your tires to the manufacturers specifications

Keeping your tires properly and correctly inflated can not only improve your car's overall handling, it can also help increase your car's fuel efficiency. The concept is simple, the lower your tire pressure, the more friction your tires have with the road, and as a result, it will take more fuel to maintain your speed.

The best recommendation is to check your tires every time you fill up. You can purchase a pressure gauge at almost any gas station for a few dollars, and properly inflating your tires can save you several percentage points on fuel efficiency in your car.

Estimated MPG increase: 3 - 7%

WARNING: Do NOT over-inflate your tires. While this may further reduce friction and increase your fuel efficiency, it will increase your ability to control your car and could result in a collision.
