What are the best way's to save gas while you are driving?
With gas prices moving up yet once again (Feb 2013), but people still needing to drive, what are some of the best ways to save on gas while still driving?
Personally..I like to map out my routes to and from work. I try to take Right Hand turns as it saves me time by going with the flowof traffic which means less drive time and equates into gas savings...also. .everything from properly functioning Air intake system, Air filter, Properly inflated tires, Sparkplugs, a fuel system cleaning to ensure unclogged injectors down to even just your oxygen sensors which tell your onboard engine management computer what your Air/Fuel mixture should be and if it were to fail, you engine would just be guessing and end up using more fuel than needed, theres tons of factors.
There are many ways to save fuel while driving. The biggest and most obvious, as well as most convenient is to avoid traffic. Stop and go is the worst for mileage. So lights would be a good thing to avoid. In the summer time, especially during highway driving using the air conditioning can save versus rolling the windows down because of the aerodynamic drag involved.
Shifting to a higher gear and running your car at a lower engine speed will increase mileage as well to a certain extent. As mentioned by Chris_L keeping your car properly maintained is of utmost importance in both mileage and reliability.
Also not having accessories on the outside of your car will decrease drag and increase mileage. For instance if you want a roof rack look for a detachable one and use it only as needed.
Those would be your most likely ways to save fuel but you could try things like a performance air filter to improve the engines efficiency. It can provide a mile or 2 per gallon depending on the vehicle and does improve performance slightly.
The best way. You do not listen to music or use anything that consume gas. Keep your windows down if it is hot. If it is cold. You need to use heavy clothes. Keep your car in good working condition. Or you buy a new car. A new car will save you gas while you are driving.
