Whether you’re wondering how you can save fuel while driving on hills or how to improve gas mileage with preventative car maintenance, we have plenty of tips for you! Read on to learn how to improve your gas mileage, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions along the way.

How to Improve MPG: Practice Fuel-Efficient Driving Habits

There are several fuel-efficient driving habits you can practice as you drive around :

  • Accelerate gradually
  • Drive the speed limit
  • Drive at a consistent speed
  • Remove unnecessary weight or cargo
  • Limit idling 

How can you save fuel while driving on hills? The harder you accelerate, the more gas you’ll burn through. That said, accelerate slowly uphill until you have reached the top. As you start to descend, remove your foot from the gas and let your vehicle’s momentum coast you downhill. 

How to Improve MPG: Bring Your Car in for Regular Maintenance

While it can be tempting to postpone car maintenance, such as an oil change or tire rotation, it’s not a good idea if you’re trying to improve your gas mileage. If certain components of your vehicle are neglected or not working correctly, your engine will have to work harder, thus decreasing your fuel economy. 

Here are just a few ways to guarantee fuel-efficient driving in and beyond:


  • Keep your tires inflated properly
  • Get oil changes regularly
  • Change spark plugs regularly
  • Get air filter replacements regularly
  • Have your brakes checked for drag
  • Make sure the wheels are aligned properly
  • Replace a broken or missing spoiler
  • Replace the thermostat when needed
  • Replace the cabin air filter regularly
  • Replace oxygen sensors regularly
