Are you planning on taking a road trip in Oregon this summer? If so, one of the most important things that you will want to do is save money on gas because spending more money on gas can easily eat into your road trip budget.
In this article we will share with you several tips you can use for saving money on gas during your next Oregon Road Trip.
The best 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.
Buy A Lighter Vehicle
If you plan on buying another vehicle before your road trip you should focus closely on the weight of the vehicle that you plan on buying.
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.
