With gas prices increasing, Bartow, FL drivers are seeking ways to maximize their dollar. At Lake Wales Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we know many local drivers depend on their Dodge Journey or Chrysler Pacifica for both local errands and long-range road trips. Our Dodge dealership serving Bartow, FL has some great tips for getting the most out of your vehicle.

The mpg of your car is only a fraction of what you should take into consideration when it comes to conserving gas this summer; there are other strategies to ensure that you’re not wasting fuel. One simple strategy is applying steady pressure to the gas pedal when accelerating. Although it is tempting to “floor it,” doing so uses a great amount of fuel. Your dashboard is also a great indicator of fuel, allowing you to monitor your vehicle’s overall efficiency (including tire pressure), and using cruise control during long trips. Many mobile applications are available that can help you monitor fuel efficiency in your vehicle, making it easier for you to save money.

Another way to promote optimal fuel economy is to bring your vehicle to our Jeep service center. Our highly trained, qualified technicians will examine your RAM 1500 to determine if there are potential issues. Whether you need your tires inflated or oil changed, our service center can help you stay on the road and conserve fuel. Maintaining your car is critical to ensuring that it runs smoothly and efficiently, and our service team is more than willing to provide expertise to keep you roadworthy!
