Fitness professionals often work at several locations, which can entail a lot of driving. These days, that means high gasoline bills. Here, courtesy of www.howtoadvice.com, are several tips to help you improve fuel efficiency and reduce your payments at the pump:
- Purchase gas in the morning or evening. When outside temperatures are low, gasoline is dense.
- Keep your tires full of air and be sure to make regular visits to the mechanic to have them rotated and balanced. Consult your car’s manufacturer for air pressure recommendations.
- Move at a steady pace. Constantly changing speeds reduces fuel efficiency. Keep a good distance between you and the car in front of you, and avoid sudden stops and starts.
- Limit your warm-up. Unlike exercisers, cars require only 30–45 seconds to get primed for travel. Any more and you’re wasting gas.
- Make sure your windows are shut while on the freeway. Open windows increase drag and can reduce your mileage by 10%.
