If high gas prices are a big concern for you right now, we get it. That's why our Alfa Romeo service center experts are ready to share their top fuel-saving tips! Follow this advice from Ken Pollock Alfa Romeo and start saving.

Avoid Speeding

Speeding around, stopping short, and otherwise driving aggressively can actually end up wasting a lot of gasoline. When you're traveling at speeds of more than 50 miles per hour, you're generally going to start seeing fuel economy numbers decline as you go faster.

Get Rid of Excess Cargo

Maybe you have some camping equipment or other gear in your car because you needed it a few weekends ago. Now it's just in your vehicle, weighing you down and causing a drop in gas mileage. If you don't need to have it in your car right now, ditch that excess cargo.

Roll the Windows Up

Your car is designed to be aerodynamic at highway speeds, but some things can cause drag and end up reducing your gas mileage. One of these things is opening up the windows.

Don't Put Off Oil Changes

Fresh oil keeps your engine running more efficiently. If you skip oil changes, your engine has to work harder and uses more gasoline than normal. There are also important parts, like the engine air filter and the engine oil filter, that help your car run efficiently. These Alfa Romeo parts wear out over time and need to be replaced, so skipping out on routine maintenance is always a bad idea.

Keep an Eye on Your Tire Pressure

Under-inflated tires can actually cause your car to use more gas than normal. Check the driver's side door to see the proper psi on your tires, and keep a tire pressure gauge around so that you can keep your tires inflated.
