Considering how expensive that can be among the many costs of everyday life, it is best to save what you can, where thrift does not interfere with quality. In that spirit, here are 15 ways you can save a lot of money on your car:
1) Check Your Tire Pressure
Not only will maintaining proper tire pressure make your commute safer—it can save you money in various ways, as well. When your tires are inflated properly, your gas mileage may be improved by 3.3%. Since the price of gas can get high and is a regular cost associated with driving, even a relatively small mileage improvement can help save a good amount of money. Additionally, tires that are properly inflated last longer than partially deflated ones. This is ultimately very beneficial, because buying new tires is quite expensive in itself, and having to replace them more often due to something as simple as wear from improper inflation seems a waste of money. One of the good things about tire pressure maintenance is that with the use of a gauge, you can check the pressure yourself, and you can also buy an air pump or fill tires at some gas stations when pressure starts getting low.
