How to Spend Less Time at the Pump

When driving, fuel efficiency is definitely something we all think about. How can you maximize your gas tank, spend less time filling up, and more time on the roads in Elk Grove, Woodland, Vacaville, and Davis? University Honda would like to offer Sacramento drivers a few tips to make your drive more fuel efficient.

  • How fast are you going? The faster you go on the highway, the more fuel your engine uses to break through the wind resistance. Try slowing down a bit.
  • What are you packing? Extra weight from cargo means your engine has to work harder to keep you rolling. Try packing only what you need for the trip, and leaving the extras at home.
  • How's your engine? A clean engine is an efficient engine. Get a routine oil and filter change to remove dirt and debris, and reduce friction in your engine.
  • How are your tires? Underinflated or unevenly worn tires take more energy to get moving. Regularly check the air pressure, and have your tires rotated and balanced so they wear evenly across all four.

The expert service technicians here at University Honda would be happy to maximize the fuel efficiency of your Honda by performing routine maintenance, like oil changes and tire rotations. We can also address any other issue that might come up. Schedule an appointment today, and spend less time at the pump! (Don't forget to check our Service Specials!)
