2019 Acura TLX on road

Spending money on gas is a necessary part of vehicle ownership, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to keep your vehicle running efficiently on the way to your restaurants in Columbia. Whether you drive a MDX or TLX, we have plenty of tips on how to get the gas mileage out of your Acura.

Improved Acura Gas Mileage Tips

Be Light on Your Feet

Do you have a lead foot when you drive around Ellicott City? We understand the need for speed but easing up on the gas pedal and driving at a moderate speed is better for gas mileage. Every 10 miles per hour you go above 55 mph causes a drop in gas mileage. In some cases, you may see as much as a 15% drop. Not only should you obey the posted speed to avoid a ticket, but it’ll help you save money at the gas pump as well.

Watch Your Weight

A spacious interior and plenty of cargo space are great features, but when your vehicle is weighed down, it requires more power to go. The more power you use, the more fuel you burn. If your trunk is regularly filled with heavier cargo like golf clubs, musical instruments, or sports gear, it could be affecting your gas mileage. Consider removing these items when they’re not needed.

Check Your Tires

Properly maintained tires are important to the overall performance and safety of your vehicle. They also affect your gas mileage. Under-inflated tirescan cause a drop in fuel economy of up to 1.3 miles per gallon. Not only that, but they also compromise your vehicle handling and ability to brake properly. If you haven’t gotten your tires check recently, now is a great time to find out if you need a tire rotation or a new set installed.

Don’t be Idle

Sitting idle with the engine running for long periods of time burns fuel without going anywhere, which causes a decrease in your fuel economy. If you have to sit in your vehicle for a longer period of time, be sure to turn off the engine.
