Winter

Drive Time

Drive time. Shorter trips in the winter are not ideal as it takes a while to warm up your car. You are wasting more gas warming your car up than you are to get from point A to point B. If you need to run some errands, do multiple together, that way you’re getting the best out of your fuel and not wasting more fuel warming your car up.

Check Your Tires In Winter

Checking your tires. Make sure your tire pressure is always filled. If you want a great fuel economy, you’re going to want to make sure that your tire pressure is at the correct amount at all times. This not only will help with your fuel saving, but also ensure that you have great traction for the winter roads ahead of you.
