How to Make Your Car More Fuel Efficient

Many fuel efficient driving tips are just common sense, and adding just a few of these techniques can make your Thousand Oaks driving experience better than ever. Not only will you enjoy lower fueling costs, but also a smoother ride on the Westlake Village roads. Take a look at some of our top tips:

  1. Accelerate Gently (and Only as Needed)

    Your vehicle operates the most efficiently when operating at a steady, moderate speed. Try to accelerate slowly, and then maintain your speed with options like cruise control for highway driving. This ensures that your car doesn’t work harder than it needs to, which means less gas burned.

  2. Coast to a Stop, and Don’t ride the Brakes

    Braking stops your forward momentum in an instant, while coasting makes the best use of your car’s energy in motion. When it’s possible to safely coast to a stop, it’s a good idea to take the opportunity. You’ll waste less fuel and enjoy a more comfortable ride.

  3. Take Care of Your Tires & Spark Plugs

    Tires play a huge role in your car’s gas mileage, so one of the best fuel efficient driving tips is simply to take care of your set. This includes:

    • Regularly scheduled tire rotations
    • At-home tire air pressure checks
    • Tire replacement when tread is low

    Did you know that expired spark plugs can reduce your fuel economy by up to 30%? Replacing these components on time can help to ensure that you never burn more fuel than necessary.

  4. Plan Ahead When Possible

    Today’s vehicles are more tech-savvy than ever before, so it’s easier to find up-to-date navigation information with just the tap of a screen. Avoiding road construction sites and traffic accidents prevents unnecessary idling – which can tank your gas mileage. Plus, you can often find quicker routes with a little bit of research.

  5. Lighten the Load

    The lighter your car, the better your fuel economy. A good cabin cleanup can help shed excess weight, which can boost your mileage. If you have roof or bicycle racks, you can also remove those to increase your aerodynamics on the Westlake Village road.
