1. Maintain and Repair Your Vehicle Regularly change lubricants and filters and replace worn components, i.e., spark plugs. Some vehicle repairs, such as replacing faulty oxygen sensors, may significantly improve fuel economy.
2. Use the Recommended Grade of Motor Oil and Fuel To maximize fuel economy, use the motor oil and fuel recommended in your owner's manual.
3. Properly Inflate Tires Check tire air pressure monthly and before long trips as proper inflation increases fuel economy up to 6%.
4. Slow Down Fuel economy decreases about 1% for each mph over 55, i.e., driving 65 mph vs. 75mph increases fuel economy about 10%
5. Use Overdrive Gears and Cruise Control Overdrive gears slow engine speeds, saving fuel and reducing wear. Cruise control helps maintain a constant speed, reducing fuel consumption. Use when safe and appropriate.
6. Avoid Quick Starts and Aggressive Driving You'll save fuel and avoid unnecessary wear and tear.
7. Clean Out Your Vehicle Unnecessary weight lowers fuel economy.
8. Avoid Rush Hour and Combine Trips Stop-and-go driving burns more fuel, as does each time you start up a cold engine.
