3 Tips on Improving Fuel Efficiency on Brookings Roads

Interested in learning how to improve gas mileage during your daily drives? Some of the most effective tips for improving fuel efficiency are: 

  • Maintain a Safe and Consistent Speed: At speeds exceeding 45-50 mph, your Buick, Chevrolet, GMC car, truck, or SUV begins to lose fuel efficiency, worsening the faster you go. Immediate acceleration and braking burn through fuel. The best counter against this reckless fuel consumption is to drive under the speed limit and utilize cruise control on the highway. 
  • Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated: Underinflated tires can increase your fuel consumption by as much as 4% and wear down your tires at a much faster rate. Consult your owner’s manual for the correct PSI for your tires. If they’re underinflated, stop by our Brookings Service Center for tire maintenance today. 
  • Schedule Routine Car Maintenance: Broken connections, dirty spark plugs, and clogged air filters can all negatively affect your MPG ratings. When you follow your Buick maintenance schedule, you increase your model’s fuel efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint. Schedule a service appointment in conjunction with your next repair interval to get your tires rotated, motor oil changed, air filters replaced, and more!
