How to Improve Gas Mileage in 3 Easy Steps

So, what are the best ways to improve gas mileage on your Orland Park drives? Some of the most common methods of optimizing your fuel consumption are: 

  1. Schedule Regular Car Maintenance
  • Broken connections, dirty spark plugs, and clogged air filters can all negatively affect your MPG ratings. When you follow your Buick maintenance schedule, you increase your model’s fuel efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint. Schedule a service appointmentin conjunction with your next repair interval to get your tires rotated, motor oil changed, air filters replaced, and more!
  1. Keep Your Tires Inflated
  • Underinflated tires can increase your fuel consumption by as much as 4% and wear down your tires at a much faster rate. Consult your owner’s manual for the correct PSI for your tires. If they’re underinflated, stop by ourChicago Service Centerfor tire service today. 
  1. Maintain a Consistent and Safe Speed
  • At speeds exceeding 45-50 mph, your Buick begins to lose fuel efficiency, worsening the faster you go. Immediate acceleration and braking burn through fuel. The best counter against this reckless fuel consumption is to drive under the speed limit and utilize cruise control on the highway.
