Maximizing Your Toyota's Fuel Efficiency

For drivers who want to save a little money at the pumps by opting to purchase a more fuel efficient vehicle, there are few manufacturers better than Toyota. From their subcompact cars to their large pickup trucks, it is tough to beat their impressive gas mileage.

Of course, if you want to get the best possible fuel economy out of your Toyota, the experts here at John O'Neil Johnson recommend that you try to avoid excessive hard acceleration - or putting your "pedal to the metal." Instead, you should try to accelerate as gently as possible. Ideally, it should take you around 5 seconds to take your car from 0 to 15 miles per hour.

Of course, once you do get your car up to speed, you should try your best to keep it at a consistent speed. Unnecessary braking and accelerating can increase your gas usage by up to 20 percent - something you definitely want to avoid.
