Tips to Help You Improve Your Fuel Economy this Spring in Bedford

As spring is arriving we can finally look forward to warmer weather and nicer road conditions. It's likely that the wild weather and freezing temperatures took a toll on your vehicle this winter. If you found that all these elements reduced your gas mileage over the winter, you're not alone. To help you make up for all that lost fuel, DFW Distributors in Bedford has some tips to help you get the most out of your gasoline this spring.

Check Your Tire Pressure

Most people don't link tire pressure to fuel economy, but the truth is that it can make a large difference. Tires that are under-inflated  don't have the same traction as those that are at their proper air pressure. Not only do you lose traction, you also end up with extra rolling resistance that will waste fuel inefficiently. Cold winter weather will most likely cause your tires to lose pressure, so it's important that you check your tires periodically. Give your tires a good look every time you fill your tank just to ensure they're properly inflated. Check the tire pressure with a gauge at least once a month in order to get the best fuel economy.

Get a Tune Up

Having your car regularly tuned-up will not only ensure your car is in great shape, it will also positively influence your fuel economy. Fixing small issues your car is having will help prevent larger issues down the road and also ensure your vehicle is using gas more efficiently and creating less pollution.

Pay Attention to Your Gas Cap

It may sound silly but issues with your gas cap can be a contributing factor to reduced fuel efficiency. If your cap is loose, broken or missing you could be losing a lot of gasoline to vaporization. Surprisingly, this issue causes up to 147 million gallons of fuel to evaporate every year. Avoid losing your fuel to vaporization by getting your gas cap fixed this spring.

Get a Synthetic Oil Change

If you're planning on taking your car in for its scheduled oil change, consider making it a full synthetic oil change. One of the many benefits of a synthetic oil change is that it can help improve your vehicle's fuel efficiency. The synthetic formula is easier on your engine causing less strain and wear, which ultimately result in less fuel wasting. Not only will you be saving at the pump, the environment will also be better protected. Make the switch to a synthetic oil you can trust this spring. Contact DFW Distributors at (817) 267- 5693 for more information about AMSOIL's  quality synthetic oil and to find the best synthetic oil deals and specials in Bedford. For the best engine protection, check out AMSOIL's Signature Series oils in our online shop!

Lighten Your Load

A heavy car will burn fuel faster than a light car. To help your vehicle lighten up, remove heavy unnecessary items from your car. Avoid removing important items like the spare tire and emergency kits. Instead, clean out your car and remove items that you don't need to carry everywhere. Remember to remove items such as bike racks and luggage racks from your car as soon as you no longer need them. These items will make your car heavier and create wind resistance that will make you burn fuel faster.

Drive Efficiently

Driving efficiently is sometimes also called driving green. This driving technique basically means you avoid making sudden starts and stops and decrease aggressive driving habits. Sudden movements that cause your car to jerk are not only bad for your fuel economy, they can also cause added wear on your vehicle as a whole. Other driving green tips include combining errands into one trip that will reduce cold starts and make trips shorter as well as not idling your vehicle for longer than 10 seconds.

Using Your Air Conditioning

As the weather starts to get warmer you might be tempted to turn on your air conditioning. Now is a great time to turn it on and test it out. If you notice it isn't working great, get it serviced. If your air conditioning isn't working at its best, it could be wasting excess fuel. Keep in mind that anytime you use the air conditioning you are using fuel, so try to use it only when necessary. Use it while driving on the highway instead of opening windows and creating greater wind resistance. Combat the need for it by parking in the shade and using window shades to keep your car cool.
