With rising fuel costs around the country, drivers are looking for ways to get the most of their gas tanks. Here are some tips from Genesis of Wilkes-Barre for upping your gas mileage.

1. Tires

Underinflated tires are a big part of wasted gas when driving. Ensure your tires are properly inflated and rotated regularly to avoid losing any fuel efficiency. Our Genesis Service Center can schedule this for you easily.

2. Accelerate Slowly

An easy way to waste gas is to be aggressive with your pedals—both accelerating and braking. Going easy on the pedals is a simple way to improve your gas mileage and avoid burning through fuel unnecessarily.

3. Lose the Weight

Any added weight your vehicle is carrying means you’re using more fuel to go the same distance. If you have any extra items weighing down the car that you don’t need, it’s best to remove them before driving to make the most of your gas.

4. Avoid Traffic

It’s a known fact that sitting in traffic eats up more gas than driving on the open road. This is the reason why fuel efficiency is always lower driving in the city compared to your highway MPG.

5. Turn It Off

Idling is another big reason for wasted gas. While it can’t always be controlled—like when you’re sitting in traffic—oftentimes folks leave their Genesis cars on while sitting parked without thinking about it. Turn your car off whenever you can to save on costs.

6. Cruise Control

A great way to improve your fuel efficiency is to use cruise control whenever you can. Cruise control helps to maintain your speed, but it also saves on gas.

7. Regular Service

Lastly, the best way to up your fuel efficiency is to stay up to date on routine maintenance, such as oil changes. Schedule Genesis service at our Pennsylvania dealership today to be sure you’re saving as much as possible.
