Here are some tips to help make your engine run as efficiently as possible.
 
Don't Overload the Roof

At highway speeds, up to 50% of engine power is used to overcome aerodynamic drag. Things like bike racks, cargo boxes, and loaded roof rails can significantly increase air resistance and your gas mileage. You can limit this issue if you store items inside the cargo area of your vehicle instead. 

Slow Down; Brake Smart

The faster you go, the less efficient your car gets. Acceleration can hurt fuel economy, and hard braking can waste the energy you spent getting up to speed. Using cruise control on the highway can help you drive more efficiently, so you can extend the time between visits at the pumps. 

Keep Up With Regular Maintenance

Dirty spark plugs, worn-out tire treads, blocked air filters, and contaminated motor oil can all hurt fuel economy. Follow your vehicle's maintenance schedule, and keep appointments at your service centre. These regular tune-ups can also increase the lifespan and your enjoyment of your auto, as well as its safety.
