One of the most common reasons that people are stranded on the side of the road is from running out of gas. It may seem like not a big deal since there is a gas station on just about every city corner. The fact is that most people are busy and have lots on their plate. It means that your schedule is so busy that sometimes when you have to stop for gas it can interrupt the day. This can end up getting you behind schedule so most people try and stretch it out as far as they can. Most cars will start to tell you when they are in need of gas by a ding or a light. This gas lights means you are close to empty and should start making your way get filled back up. The problem is that most people also have a countdown to empty and will use that as the guide. The issue is that this is not always accurate since the way that your vehicle uses the gas that you put in the tank is used differently depending on many factors. You want to make sure you know the best way to get the most out of your gas tank so that you are stuck on the side of the road calling for a tow truck. Citywide Towing Service offers tips for how to get the most out of your gas.
How Do You Drive Your Car?
The vehicle that you are driving should be getting a certain miles per gallon as an average that the manufacturer says. The problem is that this is only true if all the stars align and you are driving the car the same way that is was when it was tested. This means that you need to make sure that if you want the most out of the gas you need to drive more calmly. The calmer you drive the better you will be. The car should not accelerate quickly so you want to find the best way to accelerate to keep up with traffic and not over rev the engine. You want to keep your RPM’s down to ensure that you are getting the most out of your gas. The smoother you drive the better your gas mileage will be. This will save you money and if you are at trying to stretch it out to get to a gas station it is the best option. This is also a good way to get the most out of your tank whether it is full or at the end of the tank.
Don’t Overuse Car Interior Accessories
The other thing that you may not know is that when you are running your air conditioner in your car the miles per gallon will go down. You will not get as much because the use of the AC is going to use some of the energy that the gas is used for. You want to make sure that you only use your AC and heater when you need it. The more you are able to shut them off the better you will be on gas mileage. This is especially important to know if your gas light comes on and you need to get to a gas station.
Does Rolling Down the Windows Waste Gas?
If you are driving you should know that the less drag on your car the better it is for gas mileage. This means that if you are trying to conserve your gas you should leave your windows rolled up. The windows up will create a smoother surface for the air to run across creating less drag and getting you more for your gas.
