Do you dread refilling your car’s tank?
These tricks can boost gas mileage and save cash…
Turn off your engine when parked for over 10 seconds, as idling wastes fuel.
Avoid aggressive driving–like rapid acceleration and braking–which can lower gas mileage by up to 33 percent.
Don’t keep heavy items in your car. An extra 100 pounds could increase gas costs by up to $0.03 per gallon.
Combine errands. Several short trips, each taken from a cold start, can use twice as much fuel as one long trip with a warm engine.
Keep tires properly inflated to avoid slashing your gas mileage.
With these tricks, avoid pain at the pump!
