Most everyone who is looking to buy a new car or maintaining a used one is concerned with fuel economy. Fuel economy, when measured in gallons, is a function of how far one gallon of fuel will get you down the road. Typically stated in terms of city miles, highway miles, and combined miles, the ratio of fuel to miles is a critical number for most drivers in today’s economy.
Green is Good
There are other reasons to care about gas mileage, in addition to the impact of what you pay at the pump . According to the Department of Energy (DOE), buying certain types of vehicles, electric or hybrid, could mean big tax breaks, and buying gas guzzlers means a potential penalty for manufacturers, which are no doubt passed down to buyers. The motivation behind these governmental penalties and incentives is a cleaner environment. So, let’s look at some important ways that you can increase that mpg and do your part for your pocketbook and the planet.
