How To Save On Gas

From long Torrance commutes to cross-country adventures, our tips on how to be fuel-efficient can help you save when you’re tackling your travels. Take a look below on how to save on gas:

  • Slow Acceleration: The harder your press on your gas pedal the more fuel you’ll use. If you’re at a stop, it’s best to accelerate slowly (but safely) to avoid unnecessary fuel usage.
  • Avoid Traffic: Stop-and-go traffic can cause your vehicle to use additional fuel. The constant pressing of the accelerator means you’ll constantly be using fuel to get your vehicle moving. Not to mention stop-and-go traffic can also cause some stress on your vehicle. Plan ahead and avoid stop-and-go traffic as much as possible.
  • Reduce Speeding: Most vehicles are designed to travel at regular highway speeds to maximize fuel economy. If you regularly speed and travel at higher than normal speeds, you’ll be using more fuel.
  • Coast As Much As Possible: When possible, try coasting to a stop. Instead of pressing the accelerator and immediately beginning braking when you come to a stop, try letting go of the accelerator beforehand and coast to a stop when you can safely do so.
  • Air Conditioner: Saving fuel with your air conditioner can be tricky. Many modern vehicles have an aerodynamic design to maximize efficiency. When you roll your windows down, especially at high speeds, you increase drag which could result in lower efficiency. Instead, consider using your air conditioner when you’re on the highway and roll your windows down when you’re driving around town.
