10 Life Cheats For Saving Money On Gas
Should you upgrade your vehicle?
Many vehicles are getting worse fuel economy than vehicles of the past. Auto manufacturers are putting larger engines in bigger vehicles, which results in unsatisfactory fuel economy. Many SUV’s get 15-20 MPG (some even worse). A new wave of hybrid gas/electric vehicles are on the market, and some of them get 45+ MPG. Although their manufacturers say that they get nearly 60MPG, the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius actually get around 45MPG in real world tests. This is still 3 times the fuel economy on some of the big SUV’s and can lead to huge savings. Keep in mind that unless you do a lot of driving, it may be difficult to save enough money to justify paying the premiums that these vehicles command at the dealership. There are a number of other non-hybrid vehicles available that can save you a lot of money at the pump.
