How to Get Better Gas Mileage

Proper vehicle maintenance doesn't just help extend the life of your vehicle – it can help you achieve better fuel efficiency. Check out a few tips about how to help boost your mpg and fuel economy.

  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Making sure your tire pressure isn't too low – or too high – can improve your fuel efficiency by up to 3.3 percent*
  • Get the recommended grade of motor oil. Quick Lane® offers high-quality oil and filter products from Motorcraft.® Using the one that's right for your vehicle can help improve fuel efficiency by up to 2 percent
  • Get an engine tune-up. Making sure all systems are running right can help improve fuel efficiency by up to 4 percent

Tips that can help boost your gas mileage

  • Avoid aggressive driving. Constant speed changes and quick stops and starts waste a lot of fuel. Taking it easy behind the wheel can improve your gas mileage by as much as 33 percent
  • Remove excess weight. You can improve fuel efficiency by about 2 percent for every 100 lbs. of weight you remove from your vehicle
  • Use cruise control. It's almost always more fuel-efficient to travel at a constant speed
  • Avoid idling. It's more fuel-efficient to turn off your engine when you're waiting in your vehicle
  • Don't speed. Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph
