How to Save on Gas This Summer

There’s nothing quite like driving a Porsche sports car such as the 2018 Porsche 911, is there? That feeling of exhilaration mixed with the roar of a powerful engine and the latest features at your fingers simply is unlike any other driving experience.

While operating a Porsche vehicle is unlike anything else, the owners of Porsche cars are just like everyone else. This means they have to pay for gas, too. Right now, everyone’s paying a bit more for gas than they were at this time last year thanks to rising gas prices that are starting to seem like they’re limitless.

Luckily, there are some very easy steps you can take to avoid paying more than you have to for gas regardless of what the current gas prices are.

The first thing you should do is get caught up with your car’s routine maintenance schedule if you’ve fallen behind. Staying current with your vehicle’s routine maintenance schedule is an effective way to improve your automobile’s fuel economy. If your car is due or past due for some routine maintenance, make an appointment to bring it into our Porsche service center near Fishers, IN now.

Making some adjustments to your driving habits is another thing you can do to keep your fuel expenses to a minimum. Adhering to the speed limit or driving slightly under it and resisting the urge to accelerate quickly are good ways to improve your gas mileage and avoid having to fill up as often.

Driving with your windows up is a simple step toward better fuel economy. When you travel with your windows down, it creates drag that decreases your car’s fuel economy. Similarly, traveling with a bike or luggage rack that you’re not using affixed to your vehicle also creates drag. If you’re not going to use it soon, remove whatever rack you have attached to your automobile.
