CAR FACTS
Fuel Mileage

One way to deal with increased gas prices is to drive less. Another is to improve your driving habits - easy on the gas pedal!  For every five miles per hour you press beyond 55 mph, you'll lose about one mile per gallon of fuel efficiency. A heavy foot when the light turns green also guzzles gas.  Track your gas mileage to be sure your car is using no more fuel than it was designed to use. 

There are several preventive measures you can take to keep your vehicle running efficiently:

1. If the engine needs a tune-up it is wasting fuel, due to misfiring spark plugs, an inefficient fuel delivery system or malfunctioning emission controls.

2. If tires are underinflated, not an uncommon condition, rolling resistance of the tires increases and wastes gas.

3. If wheels are out of alignment, another factor that affects rolling resistance, this will waste fuel and accelerate tire wear.

4. A cooling system thermostat stuck in the open position, causing the engine to run too coolly, can reduce engine efficiency.
