Improving Your Driving Habits

Improving your driving habits is one of the easiest ways to minimize fuel consumption on your daily commute. Driving at a steady speed, coasting to a stop, and accelerating gently can make a big difference when trying to save up on gas, even if they seem like minor adjustments. Additionally, learning to coast to a stop can help your brake system to be in good shape for longer, which is an added bonus to saving up on fuel. Another tool many newer model cars have is cruise control, a great way to reduce fuel consumption, especially if you’re driving on highways. Cruise control works by setting a cruising speed that helps you drive steadily and avoid sudden acceleration, which can make you consume more fuel than you realize. That being said, when learning to use cruise control, it’s essential to be cautious and adjust your cruising speed to the one you feel comfortable with.

Plan and Check Your Route Before Leaving

Planning your route is another important part of reducing your fuel consumption. For your daily commute, try choosing a route that is direct enough for you to avoid traffic jams and long ways around. Using traffic apps on your phone is an excellent way to map out the correct route and see live updates that can help you adjust in case of traffic, road repairs, or other delays that might happen when you leave for your destination.

Don’t Idle Your Car

Adjusting your driving habits also means changing how long you idle your car in your daily commute. According to people that study fuel efficiency, one thing you can do to reduce your fuel consumption is to avoid idling your car. Idling your vehicle for more than 10 seconds can consume much more fuel than turning your engine off and restarting it once you’re ready to go. Of course, turning off your engine when in a traffic jam isn’t a great idea, but doing so when waiting for someone in the car can help you save up on fuel.

Heavy Loads Impact Your Fuel Consumption

Nowadays, cars are manufactured with lightweight materials, which allow them to be fuel efficient, but constantly carrying heavy loads can cause that efficiency to drop. Of course, carrying heavy loads a few times a month, like groceries or other items, might not make much of a difference, but if you do so daily, you’ll notice your car consuming much more fuel than usual. Check your vehicle for any heavy items you can unload, and make sure to avoid driving around with heavy objects you don’t need to carry daily.

Choose products like AMSOIL’s Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil for better engine performance and to reduce your fuel consumption. For this and other excellent products for your vehicle, call Advanced Filtration Technologies at (701) 572-3780 or get to know AMSOIL’s entire catalog in their online store.

Be Consistent With Your Maintenance Routine

Besides improving your driving habits, staying consistent with your vehicle maintenance routine is essential to keep its performance at its best and help with your car’s fuel efficiency. There are four areas you should focus your efforts on to minimize fuel consumption, these are:
  • Check your car’s battery charge levels and performance.
  • Replace your car’s fluids with new, clean ones.
  • Ensure your tires are at the indicated air pressure level.
  • Change your air filter to ensure your engine is getting clean air.
Schedule one soon and ask your mechanic to focus on these four components if it's been a while since your last maintenance check. For future reference, your owner’s manual can also guide you on how often you should schedule your car’s maintenance.

Use Only Recommended Products

As the last suggestion, every car needs different products to perform at its best; that’s why it’s a good idea to check your owner’s manual for the suggested products for your engine.
