Fuel economy tips for 2011: US Government guidelines

We have brought you various information in the past about how to save money on your car and which types of vehicle are specifically designed for fuel economy, but now we have some tips which come straight from the U.S Environmental Protection Agency.

They have come up with a series of steps for the average driver to follow, complete with useful diagrams to back up their recommendations, making it easier for the reader to digest.

Their first tip is to drive efficiently, and they have divided this into sub categories with information on driving sensibly, observing the speed limit, removing excess weight from your vehicle and using cruise control and overdrive gears.

Next up is keeping your car in good shape, and to do this you’ll need to ensure that your engine is properly tuned and that your tires are properly inflated. There is also some very useful tips on checking which type of oil you are using, and also evidence that changing your air filter can save money on fuel in the long run.

Two other important areas to consider in terms of fuel economy are commuting and travelling. Deciding when to travel to work and avoiding peak traffic times can often be the difference in saving a lot of money on fuel each month.

If you’re interested in reading more, head to the official government website here. Alternatively, if you have any ‘fuel-proof’ tips which have saved you money in the past, be sure to share them with us below.
