Things to Remember to Improve Fuel Economy

If you’re interested in getting the most out of your vehicle in terms of its miles per gallon, the following tips are intended to assist you in doing just that:

  • Try not to speed. If you tend to do a lot of speeding, your vehicle’s fuel economy might suffer due to the resulting stress it puts on the engine. Consider keeping the needle on the speedometer at lower cruising speeds to see if that helps your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
  • Change the engine air filter. It’s the job of the air filter to ensure that no dirt enters the engine. Changing the filter regularly is a big help. Otherwise, all that unwanted debris will impair the engine’s overall performance.
  • Clean the cabin. Generally, you want to make sure your vehicle’s interior is free of unnecessary items. Doing so will help alleviate any extra weight that might put added stress on the engine. This particular situation can definitely impact your vehicle’s fuel economy.

Keeping everything in top shape also helps make sure your vehicle’s engine is always performing at its most efficient. Even having the right amount of air pressure in the tires can help improve your car’s overall gas mileage. Luckily, it’s easy to know if the tires of your Mazda CX-3 have the right amount of air in them.

The moment any one of them becomes underinflated, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System will alert you. That way, you can quickly fill one or all of them back to the appropriate PSI and continue to enjoy efficient performance.
