This summer we are always on the go-go-go. We have taken several day trips, a couple overnight and it seems like we are always heading somewhere each day. With that being said it is impacting our budget. Instead of driving on our vacation we opted to fly because it cost us less too! I decided to do a little research on how we can conserve fuel and save on gasoline.
1. Reduce your speed – Set your cruise control. By reducing your speed you can actually save yourself gasoline! Also, by driving at a steady spead you can too!
2. Skip the luggage rack – if you remove the luggage rack from your car you will actually save yourself on mileage!
3. Pack lightly - the more you take the more it will effect your fuel economy.
3. Tune-up – It is important that your car is working to its highest efficiencies. Get a tune-up before have out of town and make sure that tire pressure is good. This effects gas usuage!
4. Fill up in town - Drive a couple of miles in from the exit when you are traveling. Prices seem to be higher by the interstate. Taking the extra couple of minutes may save you in the long run!
5. Wax your car before you travel - My neighbor swears by this. He says he increases the fuel efficiency when he waxes his vehicle before he travels.
Do you have any money saving tips? I would love to hear them!
