Tips for Better Gas Mileage in Greer

Fuel efficiency is on every driver's mind in Greer. Not only does better efficiency keep you driving further without interruption, but it also helps you spend less money on gas. Your gas mileage isn't fixed, so try the following driving and maintenance tips for better efficiency in your Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, or Jeep brand vehicle.

Slow down: As you speed up, your engine uses more fuel to power through the extra wind resistance. If you have some extra time, slow down a bit.

Pack less: The more you pack, the harder your engine has to work to carry the extra weight. Try bringing only what you need for the trip.

Combine trips: Your engine is the least efficient when it's cold, so taking breaks between errands doesn't do you any favors. Try to combine all of your errands into one trip to keep your engine warmed up.

Get an oil change: As dirt and debris collect in your engine over time, friction is increased and efficiency is decreased. Get a routine oil and filter change to clean out your engine, and boost its efficiency.

If you're overdue for an oil change, schedule an appointment with the Mopar Service Center here at Benson Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Learn more about our Money Saving Oil and Filter Maintenance Programs for additional savings.

We hope these tips help to give your vehicle a little gas mileage boost!
