How to Save on Gas

Utah has historically reasonable gasoline prices compared to other states. However, you may have noticed a recent increase in fuel costs. If you did not notice, you may not be concerned with saving money on fuel, and this list is not for you. If you do appreciate learning ways to save money, read on.

  1. Ride a Bike: Obviously, not buying gasoline is the most efficient way to save money on gas. This may also be most inconvenient on the list.
  2. Buy Early or Late: During the summer months, gasoline is denser from the heat. This can be counteracted by purchasing during the cooler times of the day. You will get a little bit more for your hard-earned money.
  3. Slow Down: If you want to turn any car into a gas guzzling tank, accelerate quickly and speed on the freeway. It may be difficult if your foot is made of lead, but you might as well fill your gas tank with cold hard cash if you prefer to go zero to sixty in 3 seconds.
  4. Coast: Gasoline is potential energy. When you drive, gasoline is converted into kinetic energy. When you break, kinetic energy is converted into heat. The heat from your car dissipates into the atmosphere. In short, avoid breaking suddenly. Use your car’s momentum efficiently by coasting to a stop whenever possible.
  5. Maintenance: General car maintenance goes a long way to improve fuel efficiency. Remember to change, filters, oil, and tires whenever needed. You can also use fuel injector cleaner.
