In articles like "10 Ways to Save Money on Gasoline," the writers and automotive experts at Carseek.com help drivers to examine their habits behind the wheel, tend to key points of automotive maintenance, and shop discriminately for the best gasoline prices.
"This summer drivers faced prices hovering around $3 a gallon nationwide," said Wes Mayder, CEO and President of Carseek.com. "There are ways to make sure you're getting all the value possible out of that gas money. We want our users to have that information and anything else they need to drive safely, save money, and make the best automotive choices."
Unless drivers stay on top of tire pressure, required engine tune-ups, and increased drag on the auto's exterior, their gas dollars may be going to waste. Simple things like driving the speed limit, making slow accelerations, and understanding how to use the air conditioning system can dramatically improve gas usage.
By comparison shopping with online tools that locate the best prices in their area and really understanding gasoline grades, drivers are better prepared to make good choices about where they fill up and when.
"There are a lot of myths that get passed around from generation to generation of drivers about car maintenance and use," said Mayder. "Technology has changed. What worked for your father or grandfather may not work with today's automobiles."
