Pinch Petroleum Pennies! (Fuel Saving Tips)

Posted August 25, 2019 11:56 AM

If you saw a dollar bill on the ground, you'd pick it up, right? Well, whether you find that dollar on the ground or in savings at the gas pump, money is money, and here are some ways to hold on to more of it.

Slowing down is the easiest way to save fuel, especially for every speed increase over 50 mph/80 k/hr.  Tone down the speed, turn up the cash savings.  Drive smoothly (not like a race car driver) and you'll also save money in fuel.  Aggressive, fast-start, jerky-stop habits are just pulling the bucks out of your wallet about a third more than if you drove just a little more gently.  Oh, and cruise control can help with that smooth, steady speed, so use it on the highway. Bonus!

Are you hauling around a set of dumbbells or a box of books? That extra weight is costing you dough.  Store them somewhere else.  When's the last time you checked to see your tires were inflated properly? That's another money saver and makes your vehicle safer.

An idle thought… don't idle any longer than you have to.  If you will be idling for more than 30 seconds you'll save money by turning off the engine and re-starting it.  More and more of the latest vehicles now do this automatically.

Some like it cold.  But air conditioning uses a lot of extra fuel.  If you can live with the cabin at 72 on a hot day rather than turned down to arctic freeze levels, you'll save some cool cash.  Turn off the A/C all together can save you from 5-20 percent

The key to a fuel-efficient vehicle is keeping it well maintained.  If your spark plugs are old, your belts frayed and your brake pads worn, you're just throwing away fuel.  Try a few of these gas-saving suggestions and while you're at it, you'll be helping to reduce your carbon footprint that will help everyone on Planet Earth.

I came into Bob's shop a bit upset because I was bringing my vehicle for a repair I had done a year ago but at a unrelated shop not associated with Bob, I explained to him the situation and brought my car the following day, after further inspection Bob was able to assure me he could get me right after hearing the noise that my undercarriage was making, after getting an estimate for the repair I saw the opportunity to add a transmission cooler to the list of jobs, Bob suggested we add a shift kit a long with this and let me tell you, Bob knows what you want and you just can't beat the prices so we just had to do it! I honestly do not let just anybody work on my car because it is my pride and joy, but I knew when I walked into Bob's shop that he is a certified professional and he truly delivers the best quality in town, Bob also made me aware that silicone was previously being used to stop a leak which I assume was done by the last shop I had took it in for this repair that kind of trustworthiness goes a very long way, thank you once again and I will definitely be coming back for all my transmission needs!
