While choosing an efficient model like the Chevy Trax can help you maximize your fuel savings, you can also employ some tweaks to your driving style to boost your vehicle’s efficiency. Here are a few fuel-saving driving tips to get you started.
Capitalize on cruise control: Using your car’s cruise control does more than take some stress out of highway driving — it helps you save on gas. You’ll love the ease of using advanced adaptive cruise control, available on popular models like the Chevy Equinox. It makes cruise control even safer by helping you maintain a safe following distance — all while saving fuel.
Streamline your ride: For more efficient driving, remove unnecessary heavy cargo from your trunk, cargo bay, or truck bed. Also, avoid carrying cargo on top of your roof.
Ignore the urge to idle: Turn off the engine in situations when you’d normally idle. Some Chevy models take care of this for you — the remarkably efficient Chevy Silverado features smart stop-start technology on its powertrains.
Be a smart, safe driver: Aggressive driving isn’t just dangerous — it wastes gasoline, too. Habits like speeding, jackrabbit starts, and hard braking can reduce your efficiency by up to 40 percent.
Regular maintenance also helps your car run more efficiently. Take your vehicle in for a checkup at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow today.
