Get More Gas Mileage

By: Carl Formby

It is generally thought that in order to get more gas mileage one has to buy a car which is more fuel efficient. This is not the only consideration for getting more mileage. It is also a fact that the driving technique and the behavior of the driver also goes hand in hand with the fuel efficiency of a car. There are latest technologies which offer higher mileage but one can also achieve the same in old technology cars with the help of rectifying the driving errors. One should drive at a constant speed, should use gears and cruise control in the right fashion, be cautious with the running of car air-conditioning and keep the car well maintained.

Driving at constant speed and not changing the speed very frequently helps one achieve optimum mileage. One must not go very fast so as to apply brakes every now and then. Accelerating in short distances will go against the fuel efficiency of the car. More frequent speed changes uses up more fuel and results in lower mileage. One must try to maintain a constant speed on highways also and help the engine in running with less fuel.

For getting better mileage one should use the cruise control properly especially when driving on the highways. This is a technology which makes sure that the car is running optimally and the driver can be assured of deriving maximum output and higher fuel mileage. Cruise control technology adjusts the running of the car in such a way so as to optimize fuel utilization and ensure best mileage for your car.
