Keep Driving Further for Longer
There’s no reason that the great mileage that comes with the 2017 Ford Explorer has to end a few years after owning the vehicle. There are plenty of ways that Middletown drivers can ensure that they are able to keep a fuel-efficient vehicle for years to come. One way to do this is to make sure that the vehicle always has the correct tire pressure and that it doesn’t get too low, low tire pressure can greatly affect the vehicle’s ability to reach its full potential. Avoiding quick stops and braking more consciously is another way to increase fuel economy, because when a vehicle comes to full stops less, it uses less fuel having to rev back up again. One of the best ways to ensure that you’re getting your money’s worth is by driving sensibly and not aggressively, making sure to follow the speed limit and traffic flow.
