If you’re anything like us here at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, you’ve been waiting all year for a summer road trip or vacation. The kids are out of school and the whole family is ready to go, but your car needs to get ready to. That’s why we’re ready to help with our fuel-saving tips that ensure you’re not spending all your money and time at the gas station this summer.
When you get on the highway, try not to drive too fast; no matter how tempting it may be. Pushing your engine harder can increase fuel consumption, in addition to raising your risk for getting a pricey ticket. This can also help you avoid hard acceleration and braking. Being more steady helps reduce fuel usage and avert constant stops at the gas station.
Whether you’re driving a 2019 Jeep® Cherokee or a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, it always pays to take good care of your vehicle. That’s especially true if you’re trying to save fuel. The experts in our service center can make sure that your car is operating at peak efficiency. They’ll check your tires to make sure that they’re properly inflated; tires that are under-inflated increase fuel consumption, while over-inflated tires create a more unstable ride.
You can also reduce fuel usage by packing light. Heavy loads weigh down your vehicle and increase how much gasoline you need to get to your destination, as the engine needs to work harder. Think about what you really need for a trip, and leave behind the things that aren’t actually required.
