Keep reading to learn about some handy hacks to spend more time on the road and less time filling up.

  • Servicing Your Honda is Key

Ensuring your vehicle is in tip-top shape throughout the year will help improve gas mileage. Ensuring that your tires are properly inflated to reduce drag and your oil is changed to reduce excessive energy consumption can make a difference in your fuel economy. Visit our online service centre to schedule a service appointment if you need assistance checking your tire pressure or need an oil change.

  • Lighten Your Load

Carrying heavy or unnecessary weight in your car can bog down your vehicle and increase drag. Getting rid of anything heavy from the trunk is good practice to increase fuel efficiency.

  • Drive Smart, Not Fast

There are many ways you can adjust your driving habits to save on fuel. For one, you should accelerate smooth and light so that your RPMs are not jumping, causing more energy and power to be used. This also goes hand-in-hand with why highway driving is more fuel-efficient; when you suddenly change speed, you can increase your fuel consumption by up to 30 percent. It's good practice to avoid sudden starts and stops.

  • Don't Slam on the Brakes

Just as with our previous tip, slamming on the brakes can increase fuel consumption due to the sudden change in speed leading to more energy output. It's much easier on you, your car, and your fuel to coast towards a stop sign or red light rather than slamming on your brakes.
