With gas being $4 a gallon ...enough said! Here are my helpful tips to save you at the pump!
1. AIR IT UP!
Make sure your tires are inflated correctly. Tire pressure is important to gas mileage.
2. GOT JUNK IN YOUR TRUNK?
Having extra pounds of junk in your trunk can burn up the gas, so clean out that car.
3. GOT A LEAD FOOT?
Stick to driving the speed limit! Driving over the speed limit does take a toll on your gas mileage.
4. GOT SPARK?
Replace your spark plugs regularly because this can cause you to waste gas too!
5. HOT MOMMA?
If your just driving across town leave the air conditioning off! Believe me your not going to melt.
6. GET IN & GET GONE!
Before you start your car make sure you have what you need (purse, sunglasses, drink etc) so you don't leave it running idle while you run inside the house 3 times because you forgot something.
7. SHADE TREE WHERE ART THOU?
If your able to park in the shade so the inside your car does not heat up as fast and take longer to cool down when you get back in.
8. FILL 'ER UP!
If your able to fill up your car so you don't make extra trips to the pump!
9. THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKIN'!
If you live in an area that you can walk then girl get out there and work it! If you live a block or two from the grocery store then don't drive to get that loaf of bread or gallon of milk just walk. If you live close to your lil chicks school then just walk instead of driving.
10. HITCH A RIDE!
If you have a friend or neighbor close to your that is driving to Walmart or whoever you might need to go then just tag along. And if you have a coworker that lives near you trade off driving days and carpool.
MOST IMPORTANT TIP:
PUT OFF TODAY WHAT YOU CAN DO TOMORROW!
If you know you have an appointment the next day then put off your errands for the next day. Consolidate those trips so your not on the go everyday burning up that
liquid gold gas! Make every trip worth it!
I hope these tips help to make spending your time at the pump a little less scary as you watch the price go up!
