Price of gasSaving money is on the minds of everyone today. While it’s true that fuel costs are lower than they were this time last year, fuel is still one of the largest expenses Colorado citizens pay every month. There are many different ways you can save at the pump. Here atFreedom Honda, these are some of our favorite ways to save on gas this summer.

Slow down! The faster and more aggressive that you drive, the harder your car has to work, and the lower your MPG will be. Slow, gentle accelerating to a stable, legal speed is the most efficient way to drive, which saves you money. Also, slowing down won’t just save you on fuel – it will also save you from having to repair excess wear on your vehicle from driving it very hard. Not having to pay for traffic fines and increased insurance premiums is also a plus.

Track your gas mileage. When you track your gas mileage, you can get an idea of when you are most efficient, and adjust your driving habits to reflect this new-found information.

Get your vehicle maintained. From a clean air filter to proper air pressure in your tires, treating your Honda to regular maintenance is a great way to ensure it’s always running at its most efficient.

Get rid of the junk in your trunk. Are you hauling around junk in your vehicle? From camping gear to clothes, you’d be surprised just how much clutter you have in your vehicle. It’s time to get rid of it! Getting rid of the clutter won’t just be good for you mentally, but also for your pocketbook. An extra 50 pounds of junk can alter your MPG by a small percentage, but over time that can really add up.

And lastly, buy a new, efficient Honda! Of course, one of the biggest ways to save at the pump is to drive an efficient vehicle. Are you sick of driving something that gets subpar gas mileage?
