Additional Ways To Save on Gas
The price per gallon fluctuates but never seems cheap enough. Therefore, you should be judicious in how you use it. Driving habits such as speeding or quick acceleration burn more fuel. Ditch the lead foot, and you’ll save the equivalent of $0.30/gallon. Turning off your engine while waiting in traffic or long lines can save up to $0.03/minute.
Keeping your car tuned and tires properly inflated can also save money through more efficient driving. Old spark plugs can reduce efficiency by 30%, and underinflated tires lower efficiency by another 10%. Refueling late at night or in the early morning can save you even more money because you pay by volume. In cooler temperatures, gas becomes denser. As a result, you get more gas for your money.
