Tips & Tricks to Save Money at the Pump

Save Money at the Pump
If we’re being honest, one of the things that we dislike the most is shelling out money on gasoline. Although it can seem that gas is getting more and more expensive, we have compiled a list of great tips that will help you save money at the pump.

1)      Slow and Steady Wins the Race: well…sort of. By slow and steady we simply mean don’t slam your breaks and accelerate like you’re a drag racer every chance you get. If you’re driving on the highway, spending extra time on cruise control can cut down on fuel consumption

1)      Know when and Where to Fuel Up: Smartphone apps such as GasBuddy can really help you save money at the pump. In addition, gas prices begin to rise the closer you are to the weekend or a holiday.

2)      Proper Maintenance is a Must: Routine maintenance can sometimes be a hassle, but a perfectly running car gets better gas mileage.

4)      Don’t Carry Extra Baggage: extra weight in the back of your car can really cause your gas mileage to decrease. Make sure your car is a little lighter to help make your wallet a little heavier.

We know this is only a few, but we really hope that these tips will help you save money at the pump. If you’re looking for an even bigger way to save you some cash, stop by Dick Dyer Toyota and take a look at our Toyota hybrid inventory.
