Today’s Sound Money Tip is a list of common-sense ways to improve your gas mileage:

  • Keep your vehicle in good repair.
  • Check and replace your air filter at regular intervals.
  • Keep your tires properly inflated.
  • Use the recommended grade of motor oil.

You can further improve fuel economy by driving at a constant, moderate speed. Many people have forgotten that the old nation-wide maximum speed limit of 55mph was a government-mandated measure designed to impose fuel efficiency. By driving a constant 50-50mph on highways and 60-65mph on freeways, you will conserve fuel.
