Fuel for Thought: Improving Your Vehicles’ Gas Mileage

Posted on 05/01/2013 by Adrienne Sallerson  |  0 Comments

Arguably, one of your greatest challenges as a business owner with a fleet of vehicles or as a fleet manager is getting a handle on your fleet’s fuel costs.  You know the most common culprits: excessively idling, speeding, unauthorized vehicle use and poorly planned routes. But what about your maintenance procedures?

Here are some tips from that can help improve your vehicles’ gas mileage.

  1. Keeping the Engine Properly Tuned – Fixing a car that has failed an emissions test can increase gas mileage by 4 percent. Other maintenance problems, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve mileage by as much as 40 percent.
  2. Keeping Tires Properly Inflated – Improve gas mileage by 3.3 percent by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in each tire of the vehicle.
  3. Using the Recommended Grade of Motor Oil – Improve gas mileage by 1-2 percent by using the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil.
  4. Replacing a Clogged Air Filter – A new study, “Effect of Intake Air Filter Condition on Light-Duty Gasoline Vehicles,” shows that replacing clogged air filters on cars with fuel-injected, computer-controlled gasoline engines does not improve fuel economy, but can improve acceleration time by 6 to 11 percent. If the vehicle is an older model, fuel economy can improve 2 to 6 percent or up to 14 percent in significant conditions.

All of these numbers start to add up. So be sure you have an automated maintenance schedule in place to ensure you have a healthy fleet.
