Tips to Improve Fuel Efficiency in Your Ford

November 14th, 2016 by

In any vehicle, fuel efficiency is an important factor to keep in mind. As you drive your Ford around Conroe, we here at Gullo Ford Conroe-The Woodlands would like to offer just a few tips to improve your fuel efficiency:

  • Cut down on cargo weight: Extra weight means your engine uses more fuel to power your vehicle. Try bringing only what you need for your trip.
  • Get an aerodynamic rooftop cargo box: Strapping cargo to your roof can lower your fuel efficiency by up to 10 mpg. To reduce that number, purchase an aerodynamic rooftop cargo box.
  • Routine maintenance: Regular oil and filter changes keep your engine clean, and a clean engine is an efficient engine. Also, routine tire rotations and balancing help to reduce uneven tread wear, and make sure that your tires are properly inflated. Evenly worn, balanced, and properly inflated tires increase your fuel efficiency.

The factory-trained experts in our Ford Quick Lane would be happy to perform the routine maintenance above, as well as brake and cooling system inspections, battery testing, and belt and hose tightening. The best part? No appointment is needed!

Stop in today to help boost the fuel efficiency in your Ford!
