One of the quickest ways to influence fuel economy is to check your tire pressure. We find that very often driver’s tires are not at the recommended pressure. If the pressure is too low and tires are soft the engine has to work harder to move the car and results in much lower gas mileage. However, over-inflated tires will affect the handling and safety of your car. With cooler temperatures your tires lose pressure as well so now is an important time to get your pressure checked.
Be sure you are using the correct grade oil. You can improve your gas mileage by 1–2 percent by using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil. Many of today’s motors have precise engine tolerance and require very light oil such as 0-W20 or 0-W30. If a thicker oil is used it takes more energy to push through eating up your fuel.
