Basic Ways to Improve Fuel Economy

Fuel economy is the simplest way to get more value out of your vehicle and save money as you use it. Frugality is music to the ears of team members at Autobahn South, Inc, so we compiled these tips on how to improve fuel economy to help you save money as you enjoy your ride.

Use Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control is standard on most vehicles these days. It enables your vehicle to utilize fuel more efficiently in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Inefficient stop-and-go driving decreases gas mileage by up to 40 percent, so make use of this feature on your vehicle.

Slow Down

Speeding is a bad idea, period, but it also wrecks your car's fuel economy. Gas mileage goes down at driving speeds above 50 mph, costing approximately $0.18 extra per gallon for every 5 mph over 50 mph. Observing speed limits isn't just about safety and common sense. It also makes cents.
