Having your vehicle properly maintained is import. By having it maintained, you can help it last as long as possible, as well as improving the fuel efficiency. The values that are given will cover a range and will be an average based testing.

Bad driving and speeding can result in poor fuel mileage. You should observe the speed limit and set your cruise control when it is safe to do so. When you idle, the vehicle can burn quite a bit of fuel. The weather can also affect the fuel mileage of your vehicle. If you are warming up your vehicle, it will use more fuel without moving. This results in worse efficiency, but really, your vehicle is not a poorly efficient vehicle. Make sure to drive carefully and responsibly in order to keep the vehicle operating correctly.

Things like jackrabbit starts and speeding decline the miles per gallon. If you slowly accelerate, then less fuel will be wasted. It will also save on the condition of other parts of your vehicle. The same is true for braking. If you slam on the brakes, it can cause the brake system to wear out sooner than it typically should. Instead, try to anticipate any stop you might have to make. Another way to safe on fuel is make sure to empty out the vehicle the best you can. Do not use the vehicle as a storage unit. This extra weight will cause poor mileage when you travel. If you notice poor fuel mileage with your vehicle, make sure to bring it in as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.
