Driving around Fond du Lac a lot? It can get pricey since you’ll have to regularly visit a gas station, and gas prices aren’t going down any time soon. As such, you might try to figure out how to improve gas mileage with your used vehicle. Our service department can help make your ride more fuel-efficient for every drive. We’ve compiled this helpful guide with our tips on improving fuel efficiency for your new or used vehicle



How To Improve Gas Mileage With Good Driving Habits

Simple driving habits that any Oshkosh driver can adopt can improve gas mileage. Those habits include simple steps like driving at a consistent speed and coming to stops gradually. Here are some ways to improve gas mileage simply by adjusting the way you drive in small ways:

  • Drive the speed limit
  • Drive at a consistent speed
  • Accelerate gradually
  • Get rid of unnecessary weight or cargo
  • Don’t idle the car any more than necessary 

Ways to Improve Gas Mileage by Keeping Your Car Serviced

Regular vehicle maintenance can improve gas mileage on your Sheboygan drives in many ways and through several simple tasks. Postponing your service appointments or not adhering to the recommended maintenance schedule will make your car’s engine work harder. The engine will end up using more gas. See some tips on improving fuel efficiency below:

  • Keep your tires inflated properly so your engine doesn’t have to work as hard
  • Changing spark plugs regularly for the proper firing of the pistons
  • Changing the air filter regularly for cleaner air reaching the combustion chamber
  • Make sure the wheels are aligned for less wear on the tires
  • Replace a broken or missing spoiler for better aerodynamics
  • Replace oxygen sensors regularly for proper airflow in the combustion chamber
  • Replace the thermostat when needed to keep the engine at the right temperature
  • Have your brakes checked for drag so your engine doesn’t have to work as hard
  • Have your oil changed regularly for ideal piston motion
