This is where our fuel-efficient new Toyota in Orlando can help! With a fuel efficient ride, you can save a ton of money on your road trip. However, even with fuel efficient new Toyota, like the Orlando Toyota Corolla that gets an estimated 37 highway mpg, you’ll have to do some of the work. If you want to save the most money at the pump, check out our tips!
Save money on gas for your Fourth of July road trip
We hear that the Fourth of July gas prices are going to be the highest they’ve been in six years! This is why it’s important that you get the most out of every drop of gas when you hit the road. Buying a fuel efficient new Toyota or Toyota hybrid is the most effective way to save money on gas, but not everyone is ready to buy a new ride just yet. This is why our Toyota dealership in Orlando is sharing a few savvy fuel efficiency tips that can help save you money!
- Time your trips to the pump: Like we said, gas prices are set to rise drastically this Fourth of July, as it usually does on every holiday. This is also true for weekends, as gas is typically cheaper on a week day. This is why we suggest filling up your new Toyota in Orlando before the weekend arrives. Don’t buy gas right before hitting the road on Friday!
- Find the lowest prices around: It’s the most convenient to just choose the closest gas station to fill up while on the road; however, this isn’t the most cost-effective method. We know most people have smart phones now, which is why we suggest using apps like GasBuddy. It can compare gas stations in the area and find you the one with the lowest price. The most convenient gas stations will most likely charge a premium, which is why you want to be picky about which one you use to fill up your new Toyota!
- Use and don’t use certain car features: We all know the summer can get extremely hot, but don’t crank the air conditioning in your Orlando Toyota. Using too many car accessories can end up draining your gas tank. One accessory we suggest you use is the cruise control – especially when you’re on a long and flat stretch of the highway. Keeping a steady pace can help improve fuel efficiency!
