New Toyota fuel efficiency tips

Make the most of the fuel efficiency in your new Toyota! 

However, we know not everyone is in the market for a new Toyota hybrid, and some drivers aren't even looking for a new car - they just want a way to maximize the fuel efficiency of their current ride. We're here to help! If you're not ready to invest in a more fuel efficient new Toyota in Orlando, we want to help you make the most of what you've got? so we've gathered some tips! 

Don't idle! Many Orlando Toyota drivers are under the misconception that idling is better than turning the car off and starting it again, and that it'll conserve more fuel. They're wrong on both accounts - turn your ride off when you're waiting around! 

Keep your windows up
when you're out on the highway - having them down will create more drag, which slows you down and dings your fuel efficiency. It can actually reduce it by up to 10% if you're not careful! 

Get rid of your lead-foot tendencies
! The key to fuel efficiency is taking things slowly when you're behind the wheel of your new Toyota. This means avoid slamming on the gas to accelerate, and avoid stomping on the brakes to stop. Slow and steady definitely wins the race in this case! 

Even reducing your speed when you're not accelerating can have an impact on your new Toyota's fuel efficiency; if you drop it from 70mph to 60mph, you can save between 2-4 more mpg!

Maintain your new Toyota
in Orlando with regular car maintenance - this means getting regular oil changes, making sure your tires are properly inflated, and all other routine auto service needed to keep your car in tip-top shape! You should also gas up in the morning, when it's cooler - gas is denser when it's cooler outside, so you're actually getting more bang for your buck. 

Empty out your trunk and backseat. Extra weight that's added to the equation will drag down your fuel efficiency so if it's not passengers, get rid of it to enhance your car's capabilities! 

Try to alter your drive time habits, too. Combine trips into one instead of making multiple forays out onto the road, try to take the shortest routes and avoid traffic, and carpool.
