How To Get Better Gas Mileage?

There are many things that you can do to get better gas mileage on the roads of Clarksville! These fuel-efficient driving techniques require a little adjustment on how you’re accustomed to driving but you’ll still enjoy your vehicle to the fullest while driving through Nashville. Check out the tips on what may help drivers conserve gasoline:

  1. Accelerate Softly: Gently press the gas pedal; the harder you press, the more fuel you’ll use. Accelerate smoothly and take five about seconds to bring your vehicle up to 10 mph from a standstill. 
  2. Plan Ahead for Traffic: Stop-and-go traffic is an inefficient use of your fuel, and it can put mechanical stress on your car’s drivetrain. To avoid this problem, leave about 15 minutes early, and look for any shortcuts to get to your destination earlier. 
  3. Avoid High Speeds: Since cars use more fuel when driving at higher speeds, you’ll get the best possible fuel economy on the highways, driving between 55 and 65 mph, just follow the speed limit.
  4. Coast to a Stop: Don’t apply your brakes constantly, simply look at the road ahead. If you don’t see any drivers ahead of you and you need to come to a stop, take your foot off the gas pedal and allow your car to coast to a stop. How can you save fuel while driving on hills? Lower your speed as you venture uphill, and again, use your car’s forward momentum to coast downhill. 
  5. Use Air Conditioning Sparingly: Using your vehicle’s air conditioning system increases fuel usage by up to 20%. When you turn the air conditioning on, use the recirculate function instead of having it on full-blast.
