How to save on fuel cost

Tips for fuel economy from O'Meara Ford

Improving your fuel economy is simple and won't break the bank. By using these three helpful tips in conjunction with each other, you can go from your vehicle guzzling gas to using it most efficiently, which saves you money at the pump. Follow these three simple rules and you could see a 15% improvement in your fuel economy.

Slow Down

By driving 60 miles per hour instead of 70 on the highway, you can save two to four miles per gallon during the duration of your trek. Also, go easy on the throttle. Avoid accelerating quickly or stomping on the brakes. And close those windows. Driving on the highway with your windows open can lower your fuel economy by up to 10%.

Maintenance is the key

Always check that your vehicle's tire pressure is set to the recommended pressure. This can increase your fuel economy by 3.3%. Also, keep an eye on the air filter. Having a clean filter can save as much as 10% on fuel costs. And don't forget the regular tune up. By keeping your vehicle in top running order, you can see up to a 4.1% increase in fuel economy.

Modify your mentality

Make an effort to combine trips if possible, park in a central location and walk. If you can avoid driving and your destination is close, try walking or riding a bike to conserve money and gas. And lastly, fill up on cool mornings. Fuel is denser in cooler temperatures, and since pumps measure in volume, you can get more gas for your buck when it's cooler outside.

Eco-Boost Challenge at O'Meara Ford

Ford Eco-Boost Challenge is on at O'Meara Ford

This year, Ford is taking on the competition – head to head!  In this exciting campaign Ford found current owners of competitive vehicles who were in the market for a new vehicle and invited them to a road course to drive Ford cars, trucks and SUVs side-by-side with the best that Honda, Toyota, Chevy, Jeep, etc., had to offer. 

Hosted by Motor Trend, professional driving instructors helped “real people” put Ford vehicles through the paces so they could truly experience the superiority of our Ford products.

And, wow, were they impressed!

The power of EcoBoost technology and the superior driving dynamics of Ford vehicles amazed people and when they learned about Ford's great fuel efficiency they were simply blown away. Ford also demonstrated other leading edge technology features like BLIS, hands-free lift gate and park-assist. 

Ford has the best product line of any full line manufacture and is ready to prove it! Come in today and take the Eco-Boost Challenge for yourself.
