Gas prices continue to increase across the country, and Ridgefield, CT is no exception. Because of this, motorists look for new and innovative ways to keep more money in their wallet by using as little gas as possible. Going to the pump can be painful, but if you follow some tips from Pamby Motors, you should be able to improve your RAM 2500 fuel efficiency this summer.
As you hit the open road, you likely want to drive with the windows down. When you are traveling at 55 MPH or more with the windows open you create drag. This puts a strain on your engine, which in turn causes the vehicle to use more gas. You will wind up having to fill the gas tank more often when you drive with the windows down at high rates of speed.
Think about changing some of your driving habits when it comes to braking and starting from a dead stop. Slamming on the brakes often will burn gas, as will conducting a jackrabbit start. If you eliminate these two habits from how you drive, you should see an improvement in your overall fuel efficiency.
It’s always a good idea to check your tire pressure at least once per month. Tire pressure is the main factor in how efficient your fuel is used. When tires are improperly inflated, you will notice that the vehicle does not handle as well as it should. This has a direct effect on your gas mileage.
