Tips to Save Gasoline:
-The use of air conditioning increases fuel consumption by 20%
-The aerodynamics of the cars is designed to cut the air when moving forward, so having the windows open increases the resistance of the air with the car, increasing with it the consumption, since it costs more work to move the car.
– It is necessary to try to load gasoline very early in the morning, since the cold of that hour will avoid that the gasoline evaporates and we will load a little more than what we would load with the same money to the heat of the half day.
-The pressure of the tires below normal increases consumption due to the greater friction of the vehicle with the ground, in addition to wearing more of them. (for each 0.3 pounds less pressure, consumption increases by 3%)
-Avoid high speeds. A 20% increase in speed produces 44% increase in consumption. Better use the “Cruise Control” as long as there is no snow in the streets.
