pumping-gasFuel costs tend to fluctuate, and you never know when the price to fill-up is going to break the bank. As such, it’s important to save on gas whenever you can by doing the following:

  • Carpool or ride a bike to work to cut the car out of the equation completely.
  • Lighten your car by removing heavy items from your trunk. This can help improve your car’s overall fuel economy.
  • Avoid long idles. Idling for just one minute consumes the same amount of gas as starting your engine.
  • Stay up to date on oil changes.
  • Drive slower. You can improve your fuel economy by approximately 20 per cent by reducing your highway speeds.

If you are in the market for a new car, be sure to compare fuel economy ratings of the vehicles that interest you. An insurance broker at Cornerstone can also provide you with free, no-obligation quote on car insurance. Contact a broker today at 1-888-768-8001.
