With the price of gas seemingly rising with no end in sight, I wanted to pass along some frugal ways you can get the most bang for your buck in terms of better gas mileage.

~ Properly Inflate Your Tires. Under inflated tires will lower your gas mileage.

~ Don't Be Cheap on Car Maintenance. Use quality motor oil, change oil filter regularly, keep air filters clean. Follow your car's recommended maintenance schedule. Not only will these tips keep your car efficient but it will add to your engine's life.

~ Drive Efficiently. Avoid fast accelerations and drive the speed limit. Both of which will help significantly to help you get the most miles per gallon of gas.

~ Sell The Gas Guzzler. Let somebody else fill up your gas tank! Get rid of it and buy a more fuel efficient vehicle. Seems obvious but I know plenty of people who just keep driving their big SUV and keep complaining about the high price of gas. I don't get it.

~ Get Some Nice Shoes! Start walking more, start riding your bike to work or the grocery store. Also, start utilizing your local bus service a couple days a week. This is not an option for everybody, but if you have local bus service, use it.

If you are in need of a new air filter, oil filter, tire pressure gage, or something related, here are a couple online coupons that can help you save some money on purchases for your car. Also, if you don't have a car, I have thrown in some coupons for comfortable walking shoes! Not only will you avoid the high prices at the pump but you will get in great shape.
