• Take the fuel efficiency in your N Charlotte Scion to the next level!


    If you haven’t noticed the rising gas prices at the pump, we don’t know where you’ve been! It’s getting more and more expensive to fill up your tank and Toyota of N Charlotte wants to help you tackle the problem head on. A great way to increase your fuel efficiency is to purchase a hybrid, like the new Toyota Prius in N Charlotte. However, not everyone is on the hunt for a new car and Scion doesn’t currently offer any hybrid options. Thus, we’ve got tips straight from our Toyota Service Center to help you increase the fuel efficiency of your new Scion! 

    How can you make the most of your fuel efficiency? 

    First of all, you’ll need to tailor your driving habit when you’ve got your new Scion out on the road. Stomping on the gas and brakes not only puts unnecessary wear and tear on your car; it also decreases your fuel efficiency by a great deal. Drive as smoothly as you can, and try to avoid accelerating rapidly! Some other tips include: 

    • Take it down a notch on the highway – slowing your speed to around 50-55mph can help jack up your new Scion’s fuel efficiency!
    • Empty out the backseat and the trunk of your new Scion! Less weight means greater fuel efficiency, so get all of the unneeded items out of your trunk and travel light whenever you can!
    • You can also condense your trips to increase the fuel efficiency in your N Charlotte Scion. Run all of your errands at once instead of making three separate trips – you’ll save gas by avoiding as much traffic and cutting down on distance traveled. 
    • Get your new Scion near Charlotte maintenance on a regular basis! Get your oil changes, get your tuneups when necessary, and be sure to maintain your tires. Tires that don’t have enough tread on them tend to decrease fuel efficiency in addition to making your driving experience a whole lot less safe.
