How to Maximize the Fuel Efficiency of Your Mazda

Reduce Weight When Possible
Do you have a bunch of extra gear in your trunk that you leave in there just in case? Take it out! Storing unnecessary weight like golf clubs, boxes from your last move, or any other heavy items will cause your Mazda to use up more gas.
Utilize Cruise Control
Whenever going on longer drives, try to use cruise control when driving on flat terrain! This can help make your Mazda much more fuel-efficient. However, cruise control on hilly terrain won’t be beneficial because your Mazda will be trying to maintain a set speed while on a slope.
Do Routine Checks on Your Tire Pressure
Make sure you’re keeping tabs on your Mazda’s tire pressure in order to maximize fuel efficiency. Driving around with under-inflated tires will use up much more fuel than those that are properly inflated!
One of the easiest things you can do to maximize your Mazda’s fuel efficiency is to drive it smoothly and calmly. Things like revving your engine, hard breaking or starting, and even tailgating will waste fuel. While this always can’t be avoided, make an effort to practice smoother driving on all of your outings.
