How to Boost Your Car's Fuel Economy


Here at Fields Volvo Cars of Northfield we are committed to our customer’s satisfaction, whether that means providing a wide selection of Volvo cars or offering premium service at our Volvo service center. That said, we also understand how important it is to share our vast automotive knowledge, and few subjects are as much a center of customer focus as fuel economy.

As gas prices rise, fuel economy has never been a more important subject for Volvo drivers. This focus on fuel economy has only gained more traction in recent years as society begins to become more environmentally conscious. So, it should be no surprise that our team at Fields Volvo Cars of Northfield are often asked by customers how they can boost their fuel economy. 

For starters, boosting your fuel economy can be as easy as easing up on the gas pedal. The more you accelerate, the more fuel you use and accelerating less you can directly improve fuel. That said, regular car maintenance can do much more to boost your car’s fuel efficiency. Bald tires, low oil, and dirty air filters can all prove to be a dramatic hindrance to your fuel economy. These maintenance issues can make your engine work harder, which in turn, uses up more fuel. Lastly, smart refueling can stretch how long that fuel lasts in your tank. Fuel expands and shrinks depending on the temperature, while you may have filled up 12 gallons in the evening, cooler temperatures in the morning reveal it to have been less. 

When you visit our Volvo dealership, you can expect five-star service and the valuable automotive knowledge that can help you stretch the mileage of your car and improve your overall driving experience.
