S&L Motors Offers Fuel-Saving Tips for Dodge Cars in Green Bay Green Bay Dodge Dealer Helps Save Fuel for Wisconsin Drivers
GREEN BAY, Wis., July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The cost of fuel continues to rise, but drivers should not feel discouraged from enjoying the power and performance of their Dodge cars in Green Bay. S&L Motors, a leading Dodge dealer in Green Bay, WI, offers a series of fuel-saving tips that will keep drivers behind the wheel of their Dodge all summer long.
Regulate speed – according to Dodge and the U.S. Department of Energy, for every 5 mph drivers accelerate over 60 mph, fuel economy reduces by a staggering 7 percent. Accelerating too abruptly also wastes shocking amounts of gas. Irresponsible acceleration can lower fuel efficiency by 33 percent during highway driving. Slowing down and driving at consistent speeds will ultimately conserve fuel and save money.
Adjust tire pressure & check fluids– when tires are underinflated, vehicles have to work a lot harder, which increases fuel consumption and reduces efficiency. Check the vehicle's manual for proper inflation guidelines. Also use consistent, manufacturer recommended fluids. Regular maintenance will keep vehicles in top performing shape.
Lighten the load – excessive cargo or luggage can add unnecessarily large amounts of weight to a vehicle. Dodge reported that for each 100 pounds added to a vehicle, its fuel economy can reduce by approximately 2 percent. Leaving the baggage at home will help the vehicle maneuver properly and improve fuel efficiency.
Run errands wisely – smartly planning errands and avoiding multiple trips will save gas. Small trips consist of starting, stopping, braking and accelerating. Grouping tasks together will save on the vehicle and the driver's budget.
S&L Motors strives to make the lives of its customers easier with tips that will save them maintenance and money. The dealership also offers Dodge in Green Bay, WI, as well as efficient new and used cars in Green Bay, WI.
