Regardless of the Current Gasoline Price - 20 Easy Ways to Cut Your Gasoline Bill 25% to 50% (OR MORE) Right Now
Yes – I know that headline might provoke you a little bit. That’s OK. This article will show you how to cut your gas bill right now – TODAY – if you’ll simply pay attention to these tips and now begin using them. Of course, you’ll probably see a few tips you might have heard before. Why? Because they still work, always work, and are even more important now that gas is approaching $3.50 a gallon (or more) in many places.
In fact, you might have at some point heard most of these tips before now. The real issue is “Are you faithfully doing every one of these?” The average person is probably not doing 1/3 of them. Remember – even though some of these have a direct associated cost savings – how much ‘associated cost’ is filling your gas tank these days? OK – let’s get started . and these tips are in no particular order . 1.
Get your car tuned – Sure – everyone tells you to do this. But have you done it? Poor tuning wastes gas. This can improve your gas mileage by 10% or more. 2. Regularly check the air pressure in your tires – Another one you’ve probably heard before. The fellow who sold me my new tires told me that tires lose 2 or 3 pounds of air per month by themselves. Low air pressure wastes gas. Look on the door in your car for proper tire pressures, and keep it to the ‘high’ side of the range you’re given. This can be another 10% savings. 3.
Regularly change your oil – Another one you’ve probably heard. Whatever your manufacturer recommends, pay attention to it. Personally, I used to change my car’s oil every 3,000 miles. Once I switched to synthetic oil, I was told to increase the frequency between changes. Also try to use synthetic oil. Rarely will your auto manufacturer say not to use synthetic oil, but be sure you understand before you begin. Synthetic oil costs more, but lasts longer, and reduces friction in your engine better. You’ll treat your engine better while getting higher gas mileage. In my car, now I go 6,000 miles between oil changes instead of 3,000, and enjoy all the other benefits for basically the same cost. 4.
Carefully plan your errands – This is one tip lots of people miss, and it ties into another tip below. Basically, don’t run any errands that aren’t mandatory today. Put them off till you need to do them. Use the phone when you can, instead of driving somewhere. Avoid high–traffic hours, days, and other times of congestion (see below.) Add in errands when they are part of your regular daily commute to and from work. 5. Try to avoid rush hour – I’ll get some heat on this one. If your employer allows flex time, investigate that. Otherwise, if it helps you to go to work 15 minutes early and/or leave 15 minutes ‘later’ – do it, even if you don’t get paid for the time.
Why? You can either sit in traffic, get frustrated, use your gas for nothing, and maybe even overheat your car . or you can sit like a ‘dedicated employee’ at work and be comfortable. This one can save you perhaps 25–50% of your gasoline by itself. 6. Always turn right when possible – I hadn’t thought of this one before I read it somewhere. Consider that when you turn left, you sit in the turn lane and wait for a break in the traffic or the light to change. In many places you can turn right on red, and you’re not turning ‘against’ the traffic when you turn right. This tip takes some thought, but can make a significant difference in time and gas savings. 7.
