How to Increase Fuel Efficiency and Get More for Your Money

increase fuel efficiency

Mitsubishi takes pride in offering efficient, affordable vehicles. No matter which model you have, no matter what year, you can almost always find ways to increase fuel efficiency even more with some basic changes to your driving and commuting habits.

Accelerate and Brake Slowly

Sure, it can be fun to step on the gas when given the opportunity. But is it efficient? Not so much. Accelerating swiftly is a sure way to use up gas faster than needed, and the same goes for braking suddenly. If you can become more gradual in the way that you stop and go, you’ll find yourself headed to the pump less often.

Clean Your Car

The more weight your car is carrying, the more it has to work to accelerate, which means the more fuel it is using per mile. Remove large items from the trunk or the back seat to decrease weight and increase fuel efficiency. You’ll want to leave important stuff like tools and spare tires, but otherwise you’ll do well to cut as much unnecessary weight as you can.

Get Oil Changes

Engine oil lubricates the engine and its parts, so that they can work smoothly and efficiently. Older and dirtier oil means that your engine is working harder to operate and thus less efficient. Stop into Mountaineer Mitsubishi for your regularly scheduled service and do your part to boost your fuel economy. If you’re in the market for a vehicle that gets great gas mileage at a low price, look no further than the selection of efficient vehicles right here at Mountaineer Mitsubishi.
