It's no secret that the majority or everyday motorist wouldn't consider themselves mechanics, and nor do they need to be for their everyday driving. However, this mentality also leads these drivers to think that there isn't much they can do to reduce their gas usage.

How to Reduce Your Gas Usage Without Studying to Be a Mechanic

Here at Amsoil Dealer - USA Synthetics, we know that it doesn't require a degree in motor mechanics to get better fuel efficiency from your engine, it just takes a bit of knowledge from a local who professional when it comes to a synthetic oil change in Midwest City. For this post, Amsoil Dealer - USA Synthetics has put together what we consider to be the most common changes to your driving style which can see a significant reduction in your gas usage.

Drive Less

Easier said than done is often the response when we suggest this, with motorists telling us that they can’t get out of their errands. And while we can’t help you in that respect, we can help you to drive less miles. Take some time on the weekend to plan out which errands you have to do the coming week and which routes you will be taking. Using an online mapping service, work out if you can save any miles by combining trips or moving errands to other times of the day or the week. For example, if your dry cleaner is close to your child’s sports practice, then instead of making similar trips on different days, move your dry cleaning pickup and do it on the way home from sport.

Drive Differently

This can often be the most personal of suggestions as every motorist drives differently. If your foot has a tendency to press the gas pedal against the floor as soon as the traffic lights change from red to green, you're going to use a lot more gas than you would like just to reach the next red light quicker. Instead, try moving from the lights at a slower pace, not a crawl, but something more comfortable for your engine. You’re still going to get to the same place you would, however, you will notice a reduction in the amount of gas it took to get you there.

Drive a Maintained Engine

Keeping your engine running smoothly has great benefits to your fuel economy and is something that doesn’t need a visit to the mechanic. Speak with Amsoil Dealer - USA Synthetics at (405) 388-6170 and find out about the right product for your car and give your engine a synthetic oil change in Midwest City. With the use of a high-quality AMSOIL synthetic oil, your engine is able to run smoother and require less gas to run.

Drive with the Breeze

Often the hardest tip to take on, turning off the air-conditioner can see a great decrease in your gas usage. Unless you’re driving at high speeds along the highway, your most fuel economic choice when it comes to keeping you and your family cool as you drive is going to be to lower the windows. You see, when you turn on the air-conditioner your engine has to work harder to operate your air-conditioning mechanisms. If you have noticed that your car loses power when you flip the switch, this is the reason.

Drive Light

If you still have a trunk full of your children’s sports team supplies that you don’t need until the weekend, take them out and store them in the garage. How about the camping supplies that you haven’t got around to taking out which have been in there for weeks? These all add to the overall weight of your car which has a big impact on the amount of gas your engine needs to use just to get around. Before you leave each morning, look through your trunk and your car and remove anything you don’t need. While the items may seem light individually, it can all add up.
