Whether you drive a 2018 Lexus ES 350 or Lexus RX 350, you’re probably curious about ways you can lower your gas bill. With prices on the rise, saving money at the pump is something that interests many motorists these days.

While you can’t control the price of gas, there are some things you can do to lower your fuel consumption. One simple way is to keep up with your automobile’s routine maintenance schedule. Changing your oil and your filters regularly, monitoring your tire pressure, and having your engine tuned are just a few of the routine maintenance tasks that assist in optimal fuel efficiency. If your car is due for upkeep or repair, make an appointment to bring it into our Lexus service center near Fruit Cove, FL.

In addition to adhering to your routine maintenance schedule, tweaking some of your driving habits can lead to even greater savings. If you like to drive fast, consider driving at or just below the speed limit instead. Driving slower and resisting the temptation to accelerate quickly enable your vehicle to use gas more efficiently, which can lower your overall fuel costs.

Many motorists don’t realize that braking excessively also wastes fuel. You can limit the number of times and pressure you have to brake by leaving plenty of room between your car and the vehicle in front of you. This is particularly important when you’re stuck in heavy traffic.

We know there’s nothing quite like the feeling of having the wind tousle your hair as you drive along the highway, but open windows create drag. Whenever you can, drive with your windows closed to keep your fuel costs as low as possible.
