Tips On How To Be Fuel Efficient

Many of our Braintree customers often ask us, “how can you save fuel while driving on hills?” or “how to fuel-efficient?” There are many steps that you can take to save money on your everyday drives. Use the following steps below to conserve fuel and get the most out of a full tank: 

  1. Accelerate Softly: Press the gas pedal gently; the harder you press, the more fuel you use. Accelerate smoothly and take five seconds to bring your vehicle up to 10 mph from a standstill. 
  2. Plan Ahead for Traffic: Sitting in stop-and-go traffic is not only an inefficient use of your fuel, but it can also put mechanical stress on your car’s drivetrain. To avoid rush hour, leave at least 15 minutes early, and try to find a shortcut to reach your destination sans the hassle. 
  3. Avoid High Speeds: Cars use more fuel when traveling at higher speeds. To achieve the best possible fuel economy on the highways, for example, keep your speed between 55 and 65 mph (just make sure you’re following the speed limit).
  4. Coast to a Stop: Rather than applying your brakes constantly, look at the road ahead. If there’s no one ahead of you and you need to come to a stop, take your foot off the gas pedal and let your car coast to a stop. How can you save fuel while driving on hills? Reduce your speed as you venture uphill, and again, use your car’s forward momentum to coast downhill. 
  5. Use Air Conditioning Sparingly: Using the air conditioning system can increase your car’s fuel usage by up to 20%. When you turn the air conditioning on, use the recirculate function instead of leaving it on full blast.
