Tips to improve your gas mileage

We all want to save money on gas and improve our gas mileage here in the Lafayette, IN area.

Here are some tips from us at Blevins Insurance Agency for doing just that: 

1. Make sure your car is properly maintained.

This includes changing the oil, checking tire pressure, and making sure your air filter is clean. Taking care of these small maintenance tasks will help to ensure maximum fuel efficiency. 

2. Slow down!

Driving at a slower speed will help you get more miles per gallon, as well as reduce the risk of having an accident. 

3. Use cruise control when possible.

This helps you keep a consistent speed, which in turn helps with fuel efficiency because it means your car doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain that speed level. 


4. Limit weight in the car where possible.

The more weight in a vehicle, the harder it has to work and the less efficient it becomes with regard to fuel usage. 

5. Drive during off-peak hours.

When traffic is lighter, and roads are less congested, this can also help with fuel efficiency (as opposed to driving during rush hour when everyone seems to be on the road at once).
