2014 will be here in about a week – are you ready to make the most of a new year? Many Orlando Toyota drivers come up with resolutions about their drive time. Some want to make sure they stay on top of their routine auto service, while others try to curb bad driving habits or make their driving experiences more eco-friendly (which is more than possible with all of our new Toyota hybrids). However, one resolution that we hear pretty often is to make the new year more fuel-efficient (and to cut back on wallet strain at the same time)!
Make fuel-efficient drive time a New Year’s Resolution for 2014!
Toyota of Orlando is here to help! Like we said, we’ve got a huge selection of new Toyota hybrids that can help you both go green and save at the pump in one swoop. We also have other fuel-efficient new Toyota and new Scion for sale, like the 2014 Scion iQ and the new Toyota Yaris. However, if you’re not in the market for a new ride and just want to improve the fuel efficiency of the one you’ve already got, we can help out there, too! Here are some tips on how to enhance your fuel efficiency in 2014!
How can you enhance your Orlando Toyota’s fuel economy?
- Combine your trips! Carpooling is an easy way to save gas if you live near people who work with you or go to your school. You can also try and condense trips more – instead of taking your new Toyota in Orlando on different errands all weekend, pack them all into one trip and knock them out at once. You’ll save gas if you combine your various trips, trust us!
- Empty our your trunk! Still hauling around old textbooks or the bag of stuff you’ve been meaning to drop at the thrift store? Empty out your trunk – getting rid of that extra weight will definitely help bump your fuel efficiency up a notch.
- Alter your driving habits! This means no putting the pedal to the metal, unfortunately. In order to enhance fuel efficiency, you should accelerate at a slow and even pace, and not slam on the gas or brakes when you’re out on the road. Using cruise control when you’re out on the highway can help as well.
- Get that routine auto maintenance taken care of! It might seem like a pain to schedule an oil change when you’re busy (hey, did we mention at our Toyota Service Center we’ll get it done quickly AND at a cheap price?) but keeping up with routine auto care and ensuring your vehicle is in excellent running shape will help take your fuel efficiency to the next level. This also applies to tires – make sure they’re properly inflated, as under-inflated tires will take a toll on your fuel economy.
