The Best Tips To Maximize Fuel Economy in Los Angeles

The Best Tips To Maximize Fuel Economy in Los AngelesWith gas prices in Southern California at an all-time high, getting the most out of your tank is crucial. Following the simple tips below will help your car get better gas mileage. Routine maintenance is a great way to improve mileage. When you need repairs or maintenance to enhance your ride, stop by Complete Automotive Systems in Los Angeles.

Be Defensive, Not Aggressive

Frequently braking and accelerating hard will reduce your fuel efficiency because it causes the vehicle to burn more fuel. To maximize your fuel efficiency, drive below 55 mph on the freeway. By using cruise control, you can often save up to 14 percent more fuel.

Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated

Tires that are underinflated reduce gas mileage because they make the engine work harder to move the car. Gas mileage can be improved by 0.6 to three percent with properly inflated tires. Ensure you are filling your tires to their correct PSI according to your owner's manual.

Don’t Idle

Turn off your car's engine if it idles for more than three minutes to save fuel. Modern vehicles do not need to warm up their engines like older models. Many of today's models have a stop-start system that cuts off the engine when the vehicle is stopped and turns back on as soon as it accelerates. When used in heavy traffic, this feature can save your car up to ten percent on fuel.

Schedule Routine Maintenance in Los Angeles

Oil changes make engines run more smoothly, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. Regular oil changes keep old, dirty oil out of the engine. During an oil change and checkup, we will replace the oil filter and perform a multi-point inspection.

Don't take your car to just anyone for an oil change.
