how to improve gas mileage?
my new bmw 1 series convertible is averaging 17 mpg . can any adjustments be made? my mileage is 600 miles.
1) Keep your car well maintained. 2) Properly inflate tires. 3) Dont follow the concept "Pedal to the metal". 3) Purchase gasoline in the evening or at night. 4) Take highway and highway like roads where not many trafic lights. 5) Keep the car empty, NO heavy tools etc. 6) Dont over fill the car with gasoline. 7) Keep the windows closed. 8) Speed up slowly and drive at the speed limit. 9) Dont be frasturated. 10) Dont turn on off on off on off the engine because everytime u turn on the engine it uses larger amount of oil. 11) Drive 10 cm behind the semi-truck (NOT RECOMMENDED) 12) Get a savings card. 13) Buy motor oil, and other fluids from whole sale. Im tired but these are quite a few ways to higher mpg.
Well the whole sale wont actually raise ur MPG but you can save up quite a lot of money and redirect it towards gasoline.
Your car should do 9 liter per 100km or 26 MPG You need a good tune-up unless you do only city millage
