Sharp Acceleration is Lowering Your Fuel Economy

Most drivers have all been guilty of accelerating very sharply. Whether this is at a frustrating stop light or after a rough day at work, most people will take off very sharply. This might sometimes feel therapeutic but it could be causing you to lower your vehicle's fuel economy dramatically.

Instead of accelerating sharply, drivers should always smoothly accelerate. The effect of accelerating sharply is that your engine will work much harder to catch up and burn a massive amount of gas. To avoid this, press your foot down smoothly on the accelerator. This will burn less gas and is also a much safer practice. Over time you will save much more money in gas expenses than if you sharply accelerate your vehicle every time you take off.

Follow this simple driving tip to improve your vehicle's fuel economy and in turn save a ton of money at the gas pump!
