Gas prices are on the rise and unfortunately, there is not much anyone can do about it. With gas prices approaching $3, or in some places, over $3, people are looking for ways to pinch some pennies. One of the first things you want to look for is fuel economy and get that number as high as you possibly can. Ensure that your car is on “eco” mode. The “eco” mode option is primarily in newer model cars, but if you have it, definitely take advantage. Ensure that your vehicle is not on “sport” mode, for this requires the most gas.
Attempt driving at times where you don’t have to pump your breaks a lot. It is proven that accelerating and decelerating takes a lot more gas than if you are to drive at a constant speed. You can maintain constant speed on the highway by using cruise control.Professionals are even suggesting renting a car if you don’t have the new features in your car. It could save you a lot of money on gas and would give your car a break.
The final tip is to leave the gas pump in your car a minute after it clicks. You could get up to a quarter gallon that YOU paid for!
