When you are the proud owner of a luxury car or SUV such as the ones sold here at Land Rover Austin in the heart of Austin Texas, sometimes your wallet suffers due to the fluctuation of gas prices these days. You want your eyes staring straight ahead while behind the wheel and not constantly gazing at your fuel level, so here are a few tips that will ensure that you save some dollars the next time you visit the gas pump.
Having the correct amount of pressure in your tires is a very important and often overlooked factor when it comes to fuel economy. Tires lose air due to temperature (about 1 psi for every 10 degree drop); and time (about 1 psi per month). Underinflated tires can increase how much gas your car consumes due to resistance. If you are unsure of how much psi your tires need, check your owner’s manual or give us a call at Land Rover Austin in Austin Texas and speak with one of our highly trained service advisors.
Try and use cruise control if at all possible and not slam on the pedal as much. Also try leaving the house a little earlier so that you aren’t speeding and rushing to beat those early morning commuters. Not only will you be safer being the wheel by not speeding, but you will also save an exorbitant amount of gas work-week in and week out. .
Try not to burden you car with a heavy load. The more weight you have in your car, the more output it needs to perform, so try doing a clean-out of all bulky items in the backseat and trunk.
Be sure to change your motor oil on time and your engine will thank you for it. It will operate with less resistance, which means less fuel will be consumed. Invest in high-quality motor oil and keep up to date with the recommended oil changes for your vehicle.
If you live in a nice climate, then practice turning off the air and rolling your windows down. The more your compressor is used, the more gas will be eaten up, so if possible try connecting with mother nature a bit more and enjoy the breeze.
