gas-saving tipsAre you planning on taking a road trip this summer? If some long-distance driving is in your plans this summer, be sure to check out these gas-saving tips. At Ewing Buick GMC we want to help you keep more money in your pocket during your trip to the beach or city this summer.

  1. Schedule maintenance at Ewing Buick GMC. Our trusted service team will make sure your fluids are topped-off, your tires have plenty of tread, and your oil change is up-to-date. Before you take any long journey, be sure to have your car checked out by the professionals.
  2. Relax and slow down, you’re on vacation after all! The higher the speed, the more gas/fuel you’re using. Slow down and take in the scenery while you are cruising down the interstate. You never know what you might see!
  3. Use cruise control when you can. If you are doing some major highway driving, cruise control will help you maintain a consistent speed while keeping you from wasting gas.
  4. Pack only the necessities. Extra baggage means extra weight which will definitely hurt your wallet when it comes to gas prices. When packing, try to keep your luggage within the vehicle as storing overhead can cause extra drag.

From the team here at Ewing we sincerely wish you safe travels this summer!
