Gas prices are at a six year high. Here are some tips to help you increase your gas mileage and save a little money.

 

  • Buy quality fuel - Lower discount brands may save you a few cents, but it contains a higher level of ethanol, which burns at a faster rate.
  • Try to avoid blasting the air conditioner in stop-and-go city driving - This causes the engine to work harder and consumes more fuel.
  • Avoid excessive idling - The best way to warm up a vehicle is to drive slowly until it reaches proper operating temperature.
  • Use cruise control - cruise control maintains a constant speed, therefore reducing fuel consumption.
