Fall Gas Saving Tips for Phoenix Drivers

Fall has finally arrived, meaning Phoenix families will be spending more time in the car for school activities, work events and holiday traveling. Below we’ve listed out a few tips to help you save a little gas and a little money this fall.

Check Under the Hood

One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the best gas mileage out of your new or used Hyundai car is to make sure everything under the hood is working properly. This includes making sure you have a clean air filter and updated spark plugs, which can greatly impact your fuel economy if you haven’t changed them out in a few years. We recommend taking your car to our Hyundai service center in Phoenix, where our certified technicians will give your car a good once over, so that it always runs and performs as it should.

Check Your Tires

People tend to not think too much about their car’s tires, but tire maintenance is one of the most important efficiency and safety areas you’ll need to pay attention to. Not only can an improperly inflated tire be very dangerous, causing blowouts or lack of traction, it can also cause you to burn way more gas that you would normally.

Keep Calm and Carry On

Aggressive driving and speeding are two of the biggest ways people waste gas. It may seem minor, but constantly slamming on your brakes and revving your car’s engine will decrease your efficiency by as much as 33 percent. Speeding also causes your car's fuel economy to go down by at least 10 percent, meaning drivers who are aggressive and go over the speed limit tend to waste nearly half of their fuel.
