Save your gas money!

Posted on: December 15, 2011

This time of year is especially tough on your wallet.  If you are lucky enough to live in one of Lobos Management’s buildings with a T stop or bus stop nearby, try public transportation.  If that, or a car pool are not an option for you, here are a few tips from Lobos Management on how to save some money by getting better gas mileage on your vehicle.  Review your driving habits and save yourself some cash.

  1.  Don’t ignore this light… (!).  You get better gas mileage if your tires are properly inflated to the correct pressure.  Right now you can really get a good deal at Get Go… they have free air!
  2. Don’t keep junk in your trunk.  Excess weight reduces your fuel efficiency, so don’t do things like cart your golf clubs around during the winter or leave your bowling ball in the back seat all week if your league only meets on Wednesdays.
  3. Drive smart.  A few examples are to avoid idling, speeding, and rapid acceleration or braking.
  4. Service your engine.  Ignoring service to your engine could have a terrible effect on your gas mileage and your safety!
