Five Tips For Improving Gas Mileage

1. When To Use The A/C

While driving in the city during hot summer days, you will want to utilize the windows to let air in for cooling. However, the A/C can be a better option when commuting on the highway since air drag from the open windows will negatively impact fuel consumption.

2. Reduce Weight Inside Your Vehicle

The vehicle's weight and everything inside it can alter its fuel economy. If you have unnecessary items weighing down your vehicle, consider removing those items to improve the fuel economy.

3. Clean Your Air Filter

Since your engine requires a perfect combination of air, fuel, and spark to achieve a perfect combustion cycle, you will want to ensure that your air filter is always clean to keep air to fuel ratios happy. By doing so, you will also allow your vehicle to stay fuel-efficient.

4. Choose The Right Gas For Your Nissan

Depending on the model of your Nissan, you will want to choose the right type of fuel to achieve its best fuel economy potential. There is usually no benefit to upgrading fuel type unless advertised otherwise, but there is a negative impact on performance and fuel economy when downgrading to a lower grade fuel.

5. Switch to Low-Rolling-Resistance Tires

Tires play a major role in fuel economy since they are the only point of contact between the road and the vehicle, making it vital to choose the right type of tires to lower friction that increases fuel usage. Consider switching to low-rolling-resistance tires and opt for the right size tires for your Nissan to maintain fuel economy and safety.
