Summertime is great for making priceless memories with the family that you’ll look back on for years to come. As Kia dealers, we want to do what we can to enhance that experience, so we’re offering some of our best tips regarding fuel efficiency. We hope you enjoy all of your summer travels this year!

Tip #1

Visit our Kia service center. Proper care and maintenance can go a long way towards better fuel efficiency. According to carsdirect.com, spark plugs, air filters, oxygen sensors, fuel injection systems, and tires are the parts most likely to affect fuel efficiency, and we’d be happy to help with any parts replacement or repairs you may need.

Tip #2

Be mindful of your driving and take fewer, shorter trips when possible. When driving, try to coast more often, rather than holding in the gas pedal constantly. Utilize cruise control on the highway and stay at or below the speed limit to find that efficient sweet spot. Avoid that pesky rush hour traffic and you’ll save gas there, too.

Tip #3

Cut down on the extras. Roof racks and other exterior storage systems can make your vehicle less aerodynamic, so if you’re not using them, you might consider removing them. Even driving with the sunroof open and windows down can cause extra wind resistance your vehicle will have to fight against. You’ll likely want to run the AC to combat the heat, but keep in mind that is detrimental to your mpg count as well.

We hope these tips introduce a little more room in your budget so you can make the best of your time with family this summer. If you live in or near Florence, search for “Kia dealer near me” and you’ll find our dealership. We look forward to working with you.
