Tips On Improving Fuel Efficiency

Illuminated Fuel Gauge

The typical North Bend commute costs more than ever with gas prices on the rise. But did you know that there are ways to improve gas mileage that just about everyone can do? Our service department wants to help you keep your fuel costs down, so we’ve put together the helpful guide below on how to improve gas mileage with good driving habits and regular vehicle maintenance. Keep reading for our top tips for improving fuel efficiency.

Tips for Improving Fuel Efficiency – Regular Maintenance

One of the ways to improve gas mileage is to keep up with your car’s maintenance schedule. Waiting too long to get the oil changed or to perform other necessary maintenance can put an undue strain on the engine in your car. That will make it far less fuel efficient, as it has to work harder than normal, meaning you’ll be making more frequent stops at Bellevue gas stations. Schedule an appointment with our service center whenever it’s getting close to the time for scheduled maintenance on your vehicle. 

How to Improve Gas Mileage with Regular Maintenance

  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated
  • Keep your wheels properly aligned
  • Check your brakes regularly and replace the pads when needed
  • Changing spark plugs regularly
  • Keep up with your oil change schedule
  • Changing the air filter regularly
  • Replace a broken or missing spoiler
  • Replace oxygen sensors regularly
  • Replace the thermostat when needed
  • Replace the cabin air filter regularly

Tips On Improving Fuel Efficiency – Driving Habits

One of the best ways to improve gas mileage has to do with how we drive on our Issaquah roads. Here are some driving habits that anyone can adopt that will make an automobile more fuel-efficient:

How to Improve Gas Mileage with Good Driving Habits

  • Don’t speed
  • Keep the car at an even speed, instead of constantly speeding up and slowing down
  • Accelerate gradually
  • Remove any unnecessary weight or cargo from the vehicle
  • Don’t idle the car when you don’t need to
