Gas-saving Tips from AAA Arizona
AAA's five fuel sipping tips:
1. Avoid additives
2. Choose the right ride -- consider public transit, carpool or if you have two cars change to the most fuel efficient one.
3. Combine errands
4. Change your driving -- save 5 to 33 percent by avoiding speeding, aggressive accelerating and braking. This can result in savings of 19 cents to $1.24/gallon.
5. Track your mileage -- know what your consumption looks like tank to tank. If you notice a significant drop in what you're getting, that's a red flag that something may be wrong under the hood.
AAA's tip to switching to a newer, more fuel efficient car:
Do the math. You might find yourself paying a lot more up front for better mileage only to find out the initial high cost will take years to recoup down the road. For example, one new hybrid gets a combined MPG of 50 and has a starting price of $18,950. But an idea would be to go with the $13,600 car that gets a combined 34 MPG. The lower price means you would have to own the hybrid a good 10 years to make it a better buy.
Other vehicles on AAA's fuel sippers list: VW Golf TDI, Ford Mustang, Honda Fit, Mazda 2 and Chevrolet Cruze Eco.
If you're interested in one of these fuel sippers give AAA Car Buying a call. This is a free service AAA offers as one of our many automotive solutions.
