People are constantly looking for ways to get the best gas mileage possible for their vehicle. Jiffy Lube® is here to help you learn how to get more miles per gallon on the road so you can stretch gallons and dollars further.
The best way to improve fuel efficiency is to pay attention to driving habits. Aggressive driving is not only unsafe, but it also puts strain on the engine, which causes it to burn fuel faster. You can pay up to an extra $0.24 per gallon for every five miles per hour you drive over 50 mph. One way to avoid letting speed creep up and get better gas mileage on the highway is by using cruise control.
Other things to consider:
Regular visits to your local Jiffy Lube® can also help with fuel efficiency. Our technicians can ensure your tires are properly inflated on each visit. Underinflated tires may lower gas mileage by .3% for every 1 psi drop in pressure in each of the four tires. You don’t have to reach for your calculator; what that means is that if all four tires were low, once properly inflated, you’ll see a significant improvement in fuel economy your very next tankful. Plus, properly inflated tires are safer and last longer.
