Getting excellent fuel economy should be a top goal for car owners. Fuel costs run into thousands of dollars per year. Improving fuel efficiency cuts down those annual costs. There's no mystery as to why vehicles might suffer from poor gas mileage. Several common factors contribute to weak efficiency.

A dirty air filter, for example, can cause fuel economy woes. So does dirty oil. Staying on top of these and other maintenance issues can improve fuel economy. Did you know low tire inflation causes the engine to work harder to carry the vehicle's weight? That also drives down fuel efficiency when driving in St. Louis Park, MN.

Similarly, too much cargo inside the vehicle has a similar effect to low tire pressure. Excess cargo in the trunk, the backseat, or on top of the roof adds fuel economy-impacting weight.
