How to make your gas go farther in Phoenix

mechanic near me Phoenix

Hasn’t it seemed like gas prices have been all over the place lately? So how can you make your gas go farther in Phoenix?

Don’t drive with a lead foot.

Pretty simple one here. When you stomp on the accelerator you use a lot of gas. But accelerating as slowly as possible and coasting up to red lights instead of jamming on the brakes can save you a fair amount of gas in the long run.

Keep your tires inflated.

This one takes a little more effort, but it’s well-worth routinely checking your tire pressure and even keeping them slightly over-inflated for optimal gas mileage. Your vehicle will ride a little rougher, but your wallet will thank you for it.

Get your vehicle tuned up (or repaired).

If your vehicle is limping in virtually any capacity, it can have a severely detrimental effect on its gas economy. Some problems that can have a detrimental effect on your MPG’s include:

  • Old oxygen sensors
  • Old spark plugs/fuel injectors/ignition components
  • Clogged/dirty fuel filters
  • Old air filters
  • Alignment issues
  • Internal engine and drivetrain damage

As you can see, there’s a lot that can go wrong on your vehicle that can cause bad gas mileage. It’s always a good idea to track your mileage every time you fill up, as this can help indicate where and when your problems may have started.
