Part of being a one-stop-shop for all things automotive means providing our customers with expert auto-related knowledge. Today, we're highlighting a few ways in which you can optimize your fuel economy so you can get the most out of every last drop. With the prices per gallon on the rise, and the value of environmentalism as important as ever before, drivers around the world are looking for how to reduce their fuel consumption.

One of the best ways you can burn less gas is to stay on top of your motor oil maintenance. Motor oil is the central lubricant for your engine, ensuring that all of its various components operate smoothly. Although, motor oil isn’t permanent and can develop grime over an extended period. This grime can cause excess friction and heat, which can strain your engine, thus resulting in greater fuel usage. Oil changes should be performed roughly every 5,000 or so miles.

Another thing we suggest is that drivers stay on top of how hard and often you press on the accelerator. The harder you step on your gas pedal, the more fuel you’re likely to burn. By relying more on momentum and less on acceleration, you can dramatically cut how much fuel you burn. It is also worthwhile to utilize cruise control whenever possible, as this automated system will maintain your speed without excess acceleration.

Of course, when hoping to boost the fuel economy of your Honda, we recommend that you have a Honda parts and service team that can ensure that your vehicle is running at peak performance. At Heritage Honda, our goal is to help you make the most out of your driving experience.
