You don’t have to buy a new, fuel-efficient car to get great fuel efficiency. No one wants to trade a fuel bill for a car payment, so take a look at our top 5 ways to save on fuel and you may just be able to pocket a little extra money at the end of the month.

1. Change Your Driving Style - If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the rush of hard acceleration, typically runs 10 mph over the speed limit and brakes abruptly, we’ve got bad news: you’re hurting your vehicle’s fuel economy, and your wallet, in a big way. Depending on the kind of vehicle you drive and just how extreme you are with the throttle and brake, tempering your driving style can up your vehicle’s fuel economy by more than 5 mpg. That’s a serious bump. Scaling back the speed by just 5 mph means you’ll also see an increase in fuel economy.

Whether you drive a Ford, Chevy, or Ram diesel pickup, it’s especially important that you always seek high-quality repair and maintenance from qualified professionals. At Tom Quirk Automotive in Albuquerque, NM, we specialize in diesel vehicles and the ins and outs of diesel servicing. There are plenty of shops out there that can replace a part or perform a job, but it’s important that the technicians doing the work know what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and are doing it right.
