Tips to improve your gas mileage

Gas mileage is an essential factor when it comes to staying within budget and being environmentally conscious here in the Vernal, UT area. Here are some tips to help you improve your gas mileage from us at Perry Insurance Agency: 

1. Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated– Ensure your tires are properly inflated, as underinflated tires can increase the fuel needed to keep your car moving. You should check the tire pressure at least once a month and adjust accordingly. 

2. Avoid Unnecessary Idling- When you’re stuck in traffic or waiting for someone, try to turn off your engine if possible. Idling wastes fuel and increases pollution, so only idle when absolutely necessary. 

3. Drive More Efficiently- Accelerate and brake gradually to reduce wear on your brakes and conserve fuel. Pay attention to the speed limit and try not to drive faster than necessary, as this wastes fuel. 

4. Plan Your Trips Ahead of Time– Planning out your trips ahead of time allows you to optimize driving routes, saving time and money on gas by avoiding heavy traffic zones or roads with stop signs frequently placed in a row; both cause more need for acceleration and braking resulting in wasted fuel, plus more time stuck in traffic which increases emissions that harm the environment! 

By following these easy tips, you can maximize your gas mileage while keeping costs low and reducing air pollution! For more information, give us at Perry Insurance Agency a call today. We proudly serve the Vernal, UT area and would be glad to help you find a policy that meets your needs and budget.
