Even as the price of gas keeps dropping, fuel economy is still on a lot of people’s minds, and it’s certainly a selling point for auto manufacturers. Is it something you’re thinking about?
I’ve actually noticed over many years of driving cars that are a least a couple of years old, that you don’t need the latest brand new compact car to get good gas mileage.
A few things that can help any use car reduce fuel consumption:
- New tires (and proper inflation)
- A clean air filter
- New spark plugs
- Smooth driving
Then again, if you’re driving an old Explorer, buying a new Corolla will help with the monthly gas tab. Have you bought a new car—or are you considering buying one—to get better MPGs?
