With summer around the corner the public is turning their attention to the rise in gas prices. Here are a few tips from Comedy Driving, Inc. to improve mpg (miles per gallon).

AAA is reporting that gas prices have spiked once again earlier than previous years and at the highest rate of increase. If the thought of high gas prices leads to a stomach ache, then consider mpg in any future car purchases. Car makers know consumers like high mpg and there are so many different styles of vehicles to choose from. Read consumer reports and a lot of research before making a purchase to see what vehicle best fit the desired fuel efficiency.

There are many drivers that walk into Comedy Driving’s classroom courses with the habit of the heavy foot or other bad driving habits that can have an outcome on mpg. Accelerating at a quick rate may reduce the fuel efficiency. Try to ease of the accelerator and try not to break frequently when driving. Maintain a constant speed for best mpg. It’s hard to not use the breaks during traffic, so simply use the highways when they are less congested if at all possible. Also, when traveling for long distances try using the cruise control. This way the vehicle is at a constant speed.

What is put in a vehicle may affect what comes out. Make sure proper maintenance is done at the frequency the owner manual recommends it. Maintenance is crucial to a vehicle to ensure it performs like it is built to. Also try using different gasoline brands to see which one gives the best mpg output. How can anyone tell what results produce better mpg output?

Use the trip odometer in the vehicle to measure what kind of fuel efficiency is being accomplished. By doing this action, it is possible to see how many miles the vehicle can actually travel on a full tank of gas. The best way to calculate how many miles were traveled is to simply divide the number miles that were traveled by the number of gallons it takes to fuel up the vehicle at the next fill up. So, let’s say a previous trip was 380 miles and the next time the vehicle is filled it takes 15 gallons to fill it. This means 380 miles/15 gallons which amounts to 25.33 mpg.

Additionally, check the tire pressure on the vehicle. The best time to check the air pressure is in the morning when the temperature is cool. When temperatures get warmer air in tire expands and the reading on the gauge will be much higher.
