Improving your car's fuel economy saves you money and saves the environment. It sounds harder than it really is, which is why our team at Choice Auto decided to offer these tips. Here are some basic ways to get more bang for the bucks out of your ride.

Don't Drive With Tired Tires

Optimal tire pressure improves your car's fuel economy by up to 3 percent. Your vehicle's optimal tire pressure info is usually in the owner's manual, on a sticker in the glove box or on a sticker in the driver's side door jamb. If your vehicle has a Tire Pressure Monitor, get to know it intimately and try to get your tires re-inflated the moment that the monitor indicates that you should.

Respect and Preserve Engine Health

An out of tune engine sabotages your car's fuel economy in a big way. A well-tuned, functioning engine increases vehicle mileage by up to 40 percent, meaning you spend significantly less on gas over the course of a year and you extend the overall life of your vehicle's engine.
