Here at Acura of Peabody, we know that many local drivers love a good summer road trip. Unfortunately, a summer road trip can also get expensive if you have to keep stopping off at the gas station. Whether you’re driving a sedan like the 2018 Acura ILX or an SUV like the 2018 Acura MDX, we have some gasoline saving tips that can help you spend more of your money on fun than fuel this summer.

Before you hit the road, make sure you give your tires a closer look. Properly inflated tires can help you achieve better fuel economy. Under-inflated or over-inflated tires could hurt your gas mileage or even present safety hazards!

We also suggest that you accelerate and brake smoothly. This may be hard to do in say, stop-and-go traffic, but taking the extra effort to avoid harsh braking can dramatically boost your fuel economy. Plus, the ride for you and your passengers will be much smoother.

You can also save fuel by closing your windows. This simple step helps because an open window creates drag, especially when you’re driving at highway speeds. If you’re just running a quick errand in town, you may not have to worry about your windows. However, during a road trip, it pays to close them.

There’s also a feature found in our Acura vehicles that can cut down on your costs at the pump. Cruise control can help you stay a safe distance away from other vehicles while maintaining a constant speed. Staying at one speed over a long distance can save gasoline.
