Getting the Most Out of Your Vehicle's Gas Mileage

No matter what type of vehicle you drive, you're probably looking for ways to save on gas. Getting the most out of gas mileage these days is crucial, especially during the warmer months when summer formulations cause gas prices to creep higher. Here is what you can do to help increase gas mileage in your vehicle.

Driving more efficiently can help increase gas mileage. Aggressive driving, characterized by speeding, rapid acceleration and sudden braking can lower gas mileage from 10 percent to 40 percent depending on your typical driving situation. Installing a driver feedback device can help you avoid aggressive driving.

Performing regular maintenance on your vehicle will also increase gas mileage. If your vehicle is out of tune or has other problems it can decrease gas mileage by 4 percent. A more serious problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can decrease gas mileage by 40 percent.
