With fuel prices hitting record highs area and across the entire country, drivers are looking for ways to save at the pump. First of all, you have made an excellent choice by purchasing a Lexus car, as the automaker is known for its fuel efficiency technologies and increasing fleet of cars.

Beyond purchasing a fuel-efficient car, there are certain steps that you can take to save gas. Here are some tips from our Lexus service experts at MotorWorld Lexus.

Accelerate Gently 

Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to fuel economy. The harder you push down on the accelerator, the more fuel you use, no matter what type of car you’re driving. In the city especially, you can save on fuel by not slamming down on the gas the moment the light turns green.

Avoid Excessive Idling 

Consider turning off the engine if you’re stopped for more than 60 seconds, except when in traffic. The average vehicles wastes over a cup of fuel for every 10 minutes of idling, so do not start up the car until you’re ready to leave.

Maintain a Steady Speed 

When your car’s speed dips and bursts, you use more fuel, which causes you to spend more money than you need to. Tests have shown that varying the speed of your Lexus car between 50 and 60 miles per hour every 18 seconds can increase fuel use by 20 percent. When driving on the highway, consider using cruise control.

Avoid Speeding 

In addition to keeping you safe, avoiding speeding will save gas. Most cars are most fuel-efficient when they are driving around 55 miles per hour.
