How Can I Maximize Fuel Economy?

  • Make sure tires are properly inflated to manufacturer’s recommendations
  • At highway speed, drive with your windows closed. Even with the air conditioner running, the fuel savings can be significant
  • Use your cruise control when conditions permit
  • Keep your engine tuned up, follow the recommended periodic maintenance schedule
  • Replace your vehicle’s air filter more frequently if you drive in dusty conditions
  • Keep the wheels in correct alignment. Improper alignment increases tire wear and lowers fuel economy
  • Don’t let your vehicle idle excessively during warm-up
  • Accelerate slowly and smoothly, maintain cruising speeds with a constant accelerator position
  • Drive at moderate speeds on the highway. Driving at high speed lowers fuel economy
  • Avoid unnecessary stopping and braking. Maintain a safe distance behind other vehicles
