What’s the Best Way to Improve Your Gas Mileage?
While gas prices seem to have come back down from the stratosphere, at least for the moment, many people are still interested in improving their gas mileage because prices will inevitably rise again. According the Fuel Economy web site , the best way to improve your mileage is to replace your air filter. This can result in a 10% improvement in fuel economy. The next best solution – keeping your engine properly tuned can save you another 4%. This is followed by proper tire inflation (up to 3%), and using the recommended grade of oil gets you another 1-2%. My Jeep just had it’s 15k service this week and I’m hoping to see a gas mileage improvement of about 10-15%. I’ll be keeping track.
