Since the recent eclipse gas prices have been going up in Central Oregon and have been the highest in the nation so just about everyone wants to save money at the gas pump right now.
If saving money on gas has been one of your priorities, this article will provide you with tips you can use to save money on gas each month.
Buy A Lighter Vehicle
Vehicles today are at least 1,000 pounds (or more) heavier than vehicles that were produced 20 to 30 years ago; auto makers like Mazda are aware of this and are making the effort to produce more vehicles that come in at 2,500 pounds or lighter. If you’re in the market to buy a new or used vehicle, so you can save money on gasoline expenses, the first way that you can realize that savings every month is by buying a vehicle that weighs less than 3,000 pounds and has more carbon fiber and aluminum than steel.
For those drivers who don’t want to get rid of the vehicles they may be driving right now, the easy solution to making a vehicle lighter is by the changing rims or wheels on that vehicle from steel to aluminum and investing in a carbon fiber body kit if the owner is thinking about customization.
The next way to save money at the gas pump is by investing more money into engine maintenance by getting a tune-up at least once per year, using fuel system cleaner at least once every six months and buying a higher octane gasoline at least once a month because, a higher octane gasoline will burn hotter and rid the engine of any carbon buildup.
