Easy Tips to Save at the Pump

Would you like to have more money in your pocket without having to do extra work? Your vehicle‘s gas tank can actually help you save money between trips! There are literally dozens of things you can do to save gas and reduce costs at the pump.

If you are stuck in a drive-thru or other stopped traffic, turn off your engine to avoid excessive idling. Cars burn up to a half gallon of gas per hour of idling, and it only takes 10 seconds worth of fuel to start the engine back up. Removing excess weight in your vehicle will also improve gas mileage, too. Every extra 100 pounds reduces gas mileage by 1% and costs you plenty of money over time.

The Car Store will be happy to share more information with you about improving fuel economy. Stop by and we’ll also show you some fuel-efficient used cars to save you even more money on fuel.
