How to Get Better Gas Mileage Out of Your Lifted Chevy Truck
If you’re driving one of our Chevy lifted trucks around, we’re sure that you appreciate its versatility and power. What you may not be appreciating these days, thanks to rising gas prices, is your truck’s fuel economy numbers.
Fortunately, trucks have become more fuel-efficient over the years. There are also more than a few ways to improve your gas mileage. Here are some of the top tips from the service experts here at Moritz Chevrolet.
Ditch Extra Cargo
Our trucks can carry a lot, but if you don’t need some gear or equipment for your current trip all it does is weigh you down. More weight means more gasoline used, so driving around with all of that excess cargo in your bed or backseat is going to cost you extra. Keep your truck clean and don’t carry around anything that you don’t need.
Keep Up with Service
Properly maintaining your truck can keep it running as efficiently as possible, so don’t delay an appointment at our Chevy service center if you need an oil change or another essential bit of maintenance.
Check Your Tires
Improperly inflated tires can actually hurt your gas mileage. To be more specific, you can end up wasting a lot of gasoline when your tires are underinflated. Check the pressure on all four tires occasionally and make sure that they are at the proper psi. If they’re not, go and fill them up with air.
If you stop your truck somewhere, turn it off. Letting it run can waste a surprising amount of gas, and no one wants to do that with these prices. Avoid idling whenever you can.
