Tips For Better Fuel-Efficiency

images8.jpegMany economists are predicting that fuel prices will reach $4 a gallon by summer.  According to a recent survey, if this happens motorists will alter their driving behaviors dramatically.

This survey also revealed that 91 percent of motorists are cutting back on their driving and 74 percent are being better about maintaining their cars since fuel prices are rising.  In addition, approximately 30 percent of people have started carpooling, 31 percent have purchased vehicles that have greater fuel efficiency, and 25 percent are making use of their public transportation systems.

It may not be feasible for some people to drive less, however, there are a few tips that can save drivers up to $1,200 per year.  First of all, make sure your gas cap is sealed tight so that your gas doesn’t vaporize.  Next, inflate your tires to the proper level.  Also, replace air-filters that are clogged.  Finally, replace spark plugs regularly.

Even though gas prices are soaring, motorists can improve their vehicles’ fuel efficiency by having these simple maintenance tips performed.  In addition, make sure you have an auto road service program.  Many drivers are putting off getting to the pump, therefore running out of gas.
