Fuel-Efficient Driving Habits

Fuel efficiency is the name of the game for West Columbia drivers. Whether they drive a new Mazda or some other type of car, they want to know how to stretch their dollar and go as long as possible between trips to the pump. With the use of these handy habits courtesy of Midlands Mazda, you’ll have the inside scoop on how to be fuel efficient during your daily drive in Irmo.

Is it time for a new Mazda? You’ve got options in the area, but none are better than the winning team at Midlands Mazda. The advantage of coming to us for your new or used Mazda needs is in our superior service and commitment to every part of the process, from sales to financing to service.

How To Be Fuel Efficient

When you want a more environmentally friendly drive, there are a few fuel-efficient driving habits you can follow. Here are some of those steps, conveniently listed:

  1. Accelerate slowly. Press the gas pedal gently as you speed up. Accelerate smoothly and take a few seconds to go from 0 to 10 mph.
  2. Try to avoid traffic. Getting into stop-and-go traffic is a drain on your vehicle’s resources. If you can get around traffic, it would be best if you did so.
  3. Avoid high speeds. When you travel beyond a speed of 65 mph, your car will need more fuel. As a result, when on high-speed roads, stay between 55 and 65 mph and follow all speed limit guidelines.
  4. Coast to a stop. How can you save on fuel when driving on hills? Lower your speed as you go uphill and use the forward momentum of your car going downhill to coast. It’s best to coast to a stop rather than pressing on the brakes going downhill.
  5. When you can, don’t use the air conditioner. When your car’s air conditioner is on, it can use up to 20 percent more fuel. When you put the AC on in your car, don’t put it at full blast. It’s better to use the recirculate function.
