5 Tips to Better Fuel Economy

Jennie McRae - Tuesday, October 07, 2014

When it comes to fuel economy, going green isn’t just a fad—it’s a necessity that will ultimately save you and your customers money. At Central Oil & Supply, we work hard to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in motor oil and fuel technology to help you and your customers stay “in the know.” Here are 5 tips to get better fuel economy from a personal vehicle:

1. Change driving habits. Avoiding doing things like braking suddenly, driving too fast, or revving your engine can help you get more bang for your buck at the pump. Being mindful of the load you’re carrying, driving smoothly and changing gears efficiently will help you burn less fuel.1


2. Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Checking that your tires are properly inflated is very important to not only keeping your family safe in your vehicle; it will ultimately let you drive longer on that tank of gas. 2 

3. Use the best vehicle for the trip. This seems like a no-brainer, but considering which vehicle you use on an everyday basis could ultimately save you big dollars.  Taking your gas-guzzler to work every day will not be as fuel-efficient as taking your smaller car that gets better gas mileage.3    

4. Keep your engine tuned up. Staying on schedule with regular oil changes is imperative to getting better fuel economy. Using Pennzoil Platinum with Pure Plus Technology® could allow you to drive an extra 550 miles versus an engine that’s dirty.4

5. Fill up with a premium fuel. Think what you put in your gas tank doesn’t make a difference? Think again!  Filling up with a fuel such as Shell’s V-Power Premium® gasoline will remove an average of 60% of performance robbing gunk on intake valves left behind by lower quality premium gasoline. 5
