With gasoline prices continuing their wild fluctuations, many consumers are demanding more fuel-efficient cars and trucks. Automakers have responded by offering gas-sipping subcompact cars and gas-electric hybrid vehicles. But what are consumers to do when they have four years of payments left on a gas-hogging, V8-powered SUV? Surprisingly, there are a number of ways that new or used vehicle owners can improve overall fuel economy by as much as 20 percent. For a vehicle that averages 18 miles per gallon, that's an improvement of almost 4 mpg and an annual fuel savings of $400 or more. Consumer Guide's® fuel economy improvement tips don't just apply to vehicles that use the most gas. Even if you have a fuel-efficient vehicle, you can still use these guidelines to get more mileage between fill-ups, thereby keeping more money in your pocket.
