Gasoline Conservation Tips

  • Combine errands
  • Share a ride with friends/family
  • Remove excess weight in your vehicle. More weight means your engine must work harder.
  • Drive conservatively. “Gunning it at the green light” or slamming the accelerator makes the engine work harder and wastes gasoline.
  • Perform routine maintenance.
  • Ensure tires are properly inflated. Under-inflated tires reduces your mileage and increases the wear on your tires. Team
