Help Your Car Be More Efficient This Summer
Summertime is made for long road trips and quality time with the family. If you’re planning a memorable summer vacation this year, we have a handful of tips that will help make this year your most efficient one yet. Trust us to be your Pinckney, MI Chrysler dealers and we will be here to help every step of the way.
Firstly, and most importantly, make sure your vehicle is up to date with all of the necessary routine maintenance. A simple oil change or tire rotation can do a lot to improve your vehicle’s efficiency. According to carsdirect.com, spark plugs, air filters, oxygen sensors, fuel injection systems, and tires can all impact the efficiency of your car, and we will gladly take a look before you hit the road.
When you’re driving, you can conserve gas by coasting when you can, rather than switching from gas to brake constantly. Using the cruise control helps, as well as limiting your use of the air conditioning. If you can carpool, that’s even better!
Plan your route ahead of time. Make sure you’re taking the fewest trips and shortest route to save every drop that you can. If you can, avoid travelling during times where you’ll be sitting in traffic for long periods of time because your engine will soak up extra gas while idling.
If you can, make your car more aerodynamic by removing roof racks or other exterior storage when not in use. Extra wind resistance can make your engine work harder, and therefore, less efficiently.
