5 Tips For Better Fuel Economy

5 Tips For Better Fuel Economy
BRIGHTON, Mich.- We all dread watching the dollars flow out of our pocket at the pump, especially as gas prices are increasing every time we turn around! Your Ford Dealership Serving Metro Detroit has gathered up some Tips For Better Fuel Economy to help you make that tank of gas last a little bit longer!

Tips For Better Fuel Economy:
1. RELAX. Being stuck in rush-hour traffic or running late can lead to aggressive driving like accelerating/braking rapidly which can lower fuel efficiency by up to 33%! And watch your speed too because gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph!

2. MINIMIZE. Empty your vehicle of unnecessary items that you don't need to carry around to increase mpg by up to 2%!

3. TURN OFF. If you're waiting for someone turn off your engine rather than idling, which can burn a quarter to a half gallon of fuel per hour depending on your engine size!

4. TIRES. Make sure your tires are in good shape and properly inflated. This will help them to last longer and increase fuel efficiency by up to 3.3%! Save with our Tire Discounts and Tire Rotation Coupons!

5. CRUISE. Take advantage of your cruise control to keep you at a constant speed which will utilize less gas.

Whether you're in a Used Car or new vehicle like the Ford C-Max or Ford Fusion, which have great fuel economy, being more aware of how you are driving can help you achieve better fuel economy.
