We love spending time with our family and friends as much as you do, especially on those memorable summer road trips. If you’re prepping up to hit the road, make sure to check out our quick tips that will help you conserve fuel all summer long.
- Get your vehicle serviced at our Lincoln service center. Oil changes and occasional part replacements can do wonders for a vehicle’s efficiency. We can check your spark plugs, air filters, oxygen sensors, fuel injection systems, and tires, all of which are common culprits when it comes to lagging fuel efficiency, according to com.
- Drive with a purpose and conserve when possible. Taking fewer trips and shorter routes is a no-brainer for saving fuel. However, you’ll also want to try to avoid rush hour traffic and any other time your vehicle is idling for an extended period of time.
- Be mindful of your driving. Rather than pressing the gas pedal all the time, coast when you can and stay at or below the speed limit. Thanks to cruise control features, you can also find that sweet spot on the highway and let it save you on gas as well.
- Make your vehicle as aerodynamic as possible. Avoid wind resistance from roof racks, storage boxes, and even rolled-down windows. You can run the AC, but it also makes a dent in fuel use, so keep it to a minimum when you can.
Lastly, make sure that gas cap is on tight and your tires are properly inflated when you fuel up and hit the road this summer.
