Tire Pressure 

Making sure that your tires have enough air in them isn’t just good for safety but also for fuel efficiency. When your vehicle doesn’t have enough air in its tires, your car’s gas mileage can diminish. When your vehicle works harder, it uses more fuel. Make sure your tires are at the appropriate air level. 

Driving Technique 

Driving recklessly isn’t just unsafe, but it also hurts your fuel efficiency. Making lots of stops can use more fuel. You should use cruise control on the highway to keep an even pace. You should also drive with your windows up to keep your car from dragging and using more energy. 

Replacing Parts 

Replacing parts is important for fuel efficiency. Replacing your air filter for example is very important for a more fuel-efficient drive. Keep an eye on what needs to be replaced in order to make sure your vehicle is running at an optimal level for the best fuel efficiency you can have.
