Some other easy ways to help increase your gas mileage and save:

*Check your tires to make sure they are properly inflated.

*Try your best to drive at a constant speed-rapid acceleration and braking can waste fuel.

*Remove any excess weight from your vehicles-if you have a vehicle with a 3rd row, and don’t need it, remove it if possible. That can remove almost 100lbs!

*While its cool now, warm weather is coming. Try parking your vehicle in the shade to keep your vehicle cooler to avoid using your AC at maximum level.

*Combine your errands to avoid taking short trips repeatedly.

*Don’t use premium fuel unless its absolutely necessary. Check your owner’s manual, but chances are your vehicle can run fine on regular gasoline.

*CARPOOL. Yep. The old-fashioned carpool.
