Tips on Saving Gas

Although gas has lowered in price, it still can cost a pretty penny to fill up your tank, especially if you have a larger vehicle or use premium or mid-grade gas. For those of you who like to save a little extra money, here are a few gas saving tips.

Avoid excess idling

Sitting still in your vehicle while its running can be detrimental to your wallet. Sitting idle for ten minutes is equal to drive five miles. You’re better of turning off your car and restarting it.

Lose the extra weight

This isn’t referring to you in particular, but rather all the extra unnecessary items in your car. We’re all guilty of it, your trunk becomes “storage space” of any and everything that can fit inside. Take time to rid your trunk and your car of any type materials that you aren’t using.

Shop around

Before, you would have to burn gas by driving around looking for low gas prices. Kind of counter productive, don’t you think. Luckily, there are so different apps that helps you find the lowest gas prices. So simply pull out your phone, take a look, and be on your way to savings.

Utilize cruise control

This helps you keep a steady speed and instead of having to keep pressing on the gas to occasionally accelerate.

No one likes to waste money, burn unnecessary gas, or in worst cases, run out of gas. But if you ever find yourself stuck on the side of the road without gas, Pippin Towing and Recovery has a gas delivery service available to you 24 hours a day. Make sure you give us a call at (636) 937-0797.
