Each season brings its own challenges in terms of driving. One of the challenges to navigate each season is how to optimize your fuel efficiency. As summer gives way to autumn, you may be wondering how to improve your efficiency this fall. Steet Ponte Mazda has a few ideas.
- Regularly check your tire pressure. Declining temperatures can mean a reduction in your tire pressure. Driving on underinflated tires is a sure-fire way to lower your fuel efficiency.
- Get your seasonal maintenance. Fall is the perfect time to get car maintenance—Steet Ponte Mazda can inspect crucial systems, but we’ll also change your oil to make sure you get optimal efficiency this fall.
- Slow down. Especially as it gets chillier outside, it’ll be tempting to get to your warm destination faster. But speeding is one of the worst habits to affect your fuel efficiency. By sticking to the posted speed limit, you can ensure you’ll burn through fuel at a slower rate.
- Clean out your car. During summer road trips, trips to the pool, and participation in various sports games, you may have collected a lot of gear and luggage in your car. By emptying out things you won’t commonly use in the fall and winter—such as your golf clubs—you can reduce overall weight and improve your fuel efficiency this fall.
