Find in-store savings before shopping the sales and make a tank of gas go farther by planning the best route.
Valhalla, NY (PRWEB) April 7, 2011
With gas prices continuing to increase, SaleLocator, a local retail sales search engine, is offering the latest technology tips to help consumers maximize fuel efficiency.
“Making multiple cross-town or cross-region shopping trips while looking for the best deal or running errands burns a lot of wasted fuel and cash, so consumers need to plan efficient driving routes to make the best use of their gas station fill-ups,” said Michael Falkson, co-founder and CEO of SaleLocator. “With SaleLocator, consumers can find added in-store savings before hitting the stores and make a tank of gas go farther by planning the best route.”
Tip #1: Check out online gas price sites like gasbuddy.com and fuelmeup.com to get the cheapest gas in town without stepping foot in the car.
Tip #2: Rather than driving around town checking out the local sales, search sale focused sites and shopping search engines like SaleLocator.com to see what's on sale in malls and stores nearby before you hit the road.
Tip #3: Use fuel economy apps on iPhone and Droid smartphones like Car Care (available on iTunes) to calculate fuel economy while at the pump and track the performance of different fuel types.
Tip #4: Avoid stop and go traffic with the latest GPS technologies like Garmin GPS ecoRoute. Also, take note that aggressive driving and speeds above 60 MPH decrease gas mileage.
