Fuel prices can be a brutal enemy when you are planning any sort of long road trip or vacation in the summertime. Whether you are taking a road trip or carpooling to camp, our staff would like to share a few tips to ensure you have a super-efficient experience. At Sansone Auto Group, we have a professional staff ready to assist with all your automotive needs.
Packing up Your Vehicle – Whenever possible, avoid loading up your vehicle with heavy items or packing items on the roof. Adding excessive weight can bog down the engine and make it so that you are using much more fuel. Experts say that even putting 100 extra pounds on your vehicle can cut back your gas mileage by around two percent.
Tire Checks – Always make sure that your tires are properly inflated and that your wheels are aligned. Having anything out of balance with your tires leads to your engine having to work a lot harder.
Driving Habits – While brakes are necessary, braking too much can be wasteful in terms of fuel. Braking hard at the last minute when you come to a stop sign or red light will cause you to use more gas than needed as well. Instead, try coasting safely instead of having to do a hard stop.
You can bring your vehicle to the service technicians at Sansone Auto Group for all your automotive needs. We are available to check your tires, change your oil, and make sure that everything is running optimally for your daily driving or road trip plans. You can find us located at 90-100 US Highway 1 North in Avenel, NJ. Give us a call at (866) 328-3333 to learn more about our new or used cars for sale or service offerings.
