Driving Habits That Save You Money

Uniroyal Tire is excited to be partnering with the Road & Travel Magazine blog as part of our “More Mileage for Your Money” campaign. Uniroyal’s posts will help you save money on everything from gas to vacations. Enjoy our first post!


Have you ever thought about how your driving habits affect your wallet? The way you drive can significantly decrease your gas mileage or cause other costly problems for your vehicle.


Here are some tips to make sure you are getting “More Mileage for Your Money”:

  • Drive the speed limit. Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 miles per hour.
  • Don’t be an aggressive driver. Aggressive driving (excessive speeds, accelerating quickly, abrupt stops/braking) can lower gas mileage and wastes fuel.
  • Go easy on the air conditioning. Roll down your car’s windows and let in the summer breeze. Using the gas-hogging air conditioning as sparingly as possible will give your car’s fuel economy a real boost.
  • Clean out your trunk. Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially heavy ones.
  • Park in the first spot you find. If you wander all over the parking lot looking for the closest parking space, you’ll use more gas. Even if you have to walk a little, it’s good exercise.
