Fuel Economy Tips

June 3rd, 2019 by

We all know that summer driving can be hard on a vehicle, and it can also really affect your fuel economy. Every one of our team members at Barnes Crossing Kia want you to be as informed as possible regarding summer driving. Here are some fuel economy tips for driving in extreme temperatures.

Make sure the vehicle is in good condition. You might choose to go for a more fuel-efficient vehicle or drive as conservatively as possible. How can you accomplish this? Do not let the vehicle idle for longer than 30 seconds; it will warm up faster when it’s on the road. Park the vehicle in a shaded location and make sure your battery is fully charged. Avoid using the fans in your vehicle as much as possible, and don’t use 4WD unless necessary. Finally, you can also combine short trips into one long trip.

Give us a call or stop in at Barnes Crossing Kia and let us service your vehicle so it gets the best possible gas mileage.
