Toyota of N Charlotte's tips for better fuel efficiency


N Charlotte Toyota drivers: Increase your fuel efficiency today! 

Prices at the pump have been on the rise for quite some time, and filling up your gas tank can really take a toll on your wallet. While Toyota of N Charlotte offers a good deal of fuel efficient new Toyota near Charlotte, we know that a new car purchase isn’t always in the cards. That’s why we’re pleased to be able to offer you a few tips to increase your fuel efficiency and lighten the burden on your bank account! 

First of all, drive like your driver’s ed instructor taught you for better fuel efficiency. Don’t put too much stress on your N Charlotte Toyota (you’ll also thank us when it comes time for routine maintenance at our auto repair center in Charlotte). Try to push the gas and brake pedal s as smoothly as possible, and coast to a stop when you can (this also cuts down on the wear-and-tear your brakes will face). Also, shut down your new Toyota in N Charlotte when you come to a stopping point, like a long traffic light or a railroad crossing – believe it or not, this has an effect on your fuel efficiency!  

Slow your new Toyota in N Charlotte down and save big money!

Also, stop putting the pedal to the metal in your new N Charlotte Toyota. We know life gets busy and you feel like you have to get where you’re going as quickly as possible, but speeding through N Charlotte can actually cut into your fuel efficiency a great deal. Toyota of N Charlotte’s advice? Slow it down – even if you drop your highway speed from 70mph to 60mph, you can save 2-4 mpg in that journey alone! 

You know those cold N Charlotte mornings? A lot of NC Toyota drivers have been taught that you need to let your car warm up accordingly to get the best performance. In fact, you really don’t need to warm up for more than 30-60 seconds! Additionally, at our N Charlotte Toyota dealership we know that it can be pleasant to cruise N Charlotte with your windows down, but this can eat into your fuel efficiency by creating drag on your new Toyota in N Charlotte.
