How to Save on Gas with 6 Fuel-Efficient Driving Habits

A lot of Delray Beach drivers have learned how to save on gas just by adopting some simple fuel-efficient driving habits. Most of these practices will become second nature after you’ve been doing them for a while. Here’s how to be fuel-efficient while driving:

  • Leave before rush hour. Some drivers could avoid the typical Lake Worth rush hour traffic completely by leaving just fifteen minutes earlier.
  • Slow down. Constantly speeding up or exceeding 65 miles per hour can burn up a lot of gas. It’s best to drive a consistent speed that does not exceed the speed limit for the most fuel efficiency.
  • Stop trying to break that 0-60 record. Accelerate to the speed limit gradually instead of “peeling out”. This uses the least amount of gas.
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Proper tire inflation can actually make a difference to your gas mileage and you won’t have to replace your tires as often.
  • Put your air conditioning on recirculate. Using your air conditioning on its maximum setting can burn a lot of gas. When you do need the AC, set it to recirculate.
  • Give yourself enough time to roll to a stop gradually. Slamming on the breaks right before you need to stop uses more fuel than is necessary.
