A lot of changes can happen in a span of eight years. The internet, clothes, hair, social media, the economy and gas prices.
In 2005, WKVI aired a story that dealt with how to get the most out of your car as the price of gas was up to $1.70 a gallon. Fast forward eight years and we’re talking about how to get the most out of your car as the price of gas is over $4.00 a gallon.
The same rules apply:
- Slow down – if you travel five miles above 60 mph, it’s like paying an additional 10 cents per gallon. Get your car tuned up and replace your air filter. A clogged air filter can rob your car of the ability to run properly.
- Keep your tires properly inflated. If your tires are not properly inflated, you could lose a mile or two per gallon of gas.
- Check your gas cap to make sure it’s fitting properly and not allowing vapors to escape. If you don’t have a gas cap, it would be costing you money.
- Finally, remove any excess garbage or other items that may be weighing down your car.
