Tips for Becoming a More Fuel Efficient Driver

July 6th, 2018 by


Saving money on gas means more than buying one of the best fuel efficient cars around Stockton; it requires you to change your driving behavior. Check out our tips for improving MPG here at Mercedes-Benz of Modesto.

Steps to Take to Improve MPG Ratings

  • Don’t floor it off the line. – It can be fun to test your vehicle’s limits – especially while highway driving down SR 99 – but accelerating quickly can lead to poor fuel economy. Take it easy off the line to improve your fuel economy and extend the life of your Mercedes-Benz.
  • Use cruise control. – Slowing down and then speeding up repeatedly causes the RPMs to spike too often. Stay steady on the highway by engaging cruise control.
  • Get regular vehicle maintenance. – Your vehicle will get better fuel economy if it’s running its best. This means bringing your vehicle in for regular maintenance for tire rotations, tire inflations, transmission fluid replacements, and more.
  • Use Mercedes-Benz authorized parts. – Each part of every Mercedes-Benz vehicle is built for maximum performance and efficiency. It’s best, then, to equip your Mercedes-Benz with authentic, OEM parts.
