How to get the best MPG possible


Improve your MPG.

Fuel efficiency has been on everyone's mind since the gas crunch of the 1970's. Luckily, there are few easy things you can do to squeeze every drop of gas from your tank.


There are things that impact your car's MPG you can control, such as regular maintenance and driving habits. In fact, keeping up on your car's maintenance is one of the most important things for better MPG and will even make your car last longer. Keeping your car tuned up, getting regular oil changes using the proper oil, replacing dirty air filters, keeping your tires inflated properly, and removing excess weight from your car can make a significant difference. Failing to maintain your vehicle can result in a 10%-40% loss of MPG!


The second factor under your control is your driving habits. Fast starts and stops, speeding, aggressive driving, and short trips all reduce your car's MPG. Most vehicles get the best MPG around 55 MPH on the highway. Going just 10 MPH faster will decrease your MPG by almost 10% and going 20 MPH over can decrease MPG by almost 25%! Accelerating and braking smoothly and gradually can increase your city MPG by up to 15%, without really adding time to your drive.


As you can see, you have a huge impact on your vehicle's MPG and therefore the amount of money you spend on gas. Slowing down a bit and keeping up on the maintenance for your vehicle make the biggest differences in the pain you feel at the gas pump. Although regular maintenance costs money, it will be more expensive to skip it. Easy Street Oil's goal is to help you keep your vehicle running at its best, keeping it out of the shop, and saving you money over the life of your vehicle.
