FTC Consumer Alert: "Saving Money at the Gas Pump: A Bumper-to-Bumper Guide"
Saving Money at the Gas Pump: A Bumper-to-Bumper Guide
Whether driving cross-town or cross-country, everybody wants to save money at the pump. Regardless of the make and model, your car’s estimated gas mileage is just that — an estimate. An important variable is how you fuel, drive, and maintain your car. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, offers these bumper-to-bumper tips to help you drive down the cost of driving:
The Gas TankMaking the right choice at the gas pump is an important first step to keeping your car running efficiently — and economically.
The Steering WheelWhen it comes to stretching your gas budget, how you drive can be almost as important as how far you drive.
The TiresKeeping your tires properly inflated and aligned can increase gas mileage up to three percent.
Under the HoodYou don’t have to be a gearhead to keep your engine purring at its fuel-efficient best.
The TrunkAn extra 100 pounds in the trunk can reduce fuel economy by up to two percent. Removing non-essential stuff can save you at the pump.
The Driver’s SeatThe only sure-fire “equipment” guaranteed to get more from a gallon of gas is a fuel-conscious driver behind the wheel.
