Beat the Heat for Greater Fuel Efficiency!

With the warmer months sneaking up on us, it is time to start thinking about what the heat means for your car. Though you may look forward to not having to defrost your windows or warm up your engine, there are other ways that you can be getting the most out of your vehicle when the weather turns hot. One of the most obvious, simplest of these is parking in the shade.

When you park in the shade, you’re not just making the car more comfortable for when you return. You’re also helping your fuel efficiency. The warmer your car is, the more the gas in your tank is going to evaporate and escape. With this in mind, seek out the protection of overhanging trees or buildings whenever you can, and invest in an effective windshield shade.
