Simple Ways to Save on Gas

June 16th, 2018 by

If you’ve filled your tank recently, you’ve probably noticed that you’re paying a bit more per gallon these days. While that’s the case, there’s no reason for you to pay any more than you have to for fuel. As Honda car dealers serving Berea, KY and nearby areas, we can tell you that there are some simple things you can do to keep your fuel costs as low as possible even when you’re grappling with rising gas prices.

One thing you can do is change a few of your driving habits. A study conducted by Edmunds.com revealed that aggressive driving is what wastes fuel the most. Accelerating rapidly, cruising at high rates of speed, and braking sharply when you don’t have to are all habits that fall into the category of aggressive driving. If you’re guilty of doing these things consistently, you’re driving your own fuel costs up unnecessarily. By switching to a calm driving style, you can save as much as 33 – 38 percent on fuel.

To lower your cumulative fuel bill, we encourage you to visit our Richmond, KY Honda dealership. When you do, we’ll help you find a Honda car that’s fuel efficient. Driving a fuel-efficient automobile instead of a gas guzzler will certainly help to keep your fuel costs low.

If you have a smartphone, it’s wise to download an app like GasBuddy or Fuel Finder. Gas apps like those will tell you where you can find gas at the most affordable prices in the vicinity of your current location. Because gas apps use geo-location technology, they can tell you where the cheapest gas is relative to your current position no matter where you are.
