Tips for trimming your gas bills (and winning free gas)

Show us the love and win $100 in free gas
Just go to our Facebook page and complete this comment: “I don’t just like USC Credit Union; I LOVE it because…” Everyone who posts will be entered in a drawing for a
$100 gas card. Now that’s fuel-efficiency!

Filling your car’s tank is probably taking more and more out of your wallet. A few simple changes could reduce your gas consumption and save you money.

Don’t let your engine warm up too long
30 to 45 seconds should be enough.

Don’t make jackrabbit starts
Accelerate slowly from dead stops, pushing the gas pedal down only about 1/4 inch.

Drive steadily
Constant braking and accelerating wastes gas and can be unsafe.

Buy gas when it’s cool
Gas is denser during the morning and evening, so you’re getting more of what you’re paying for.

The brand makes a difference
Test your mileage using different brands. Some fuel blends may cost a little more than bargain brands, but they give you better mileage.

Regular Maintenance
Keep your car in top shape, paying special attention to the air filter; a clogged filter can restrict air flow, which wastes gas.
