If the cost of fuel has you worried about your summer travels, there are a number of things that you can do when you are behind the wheel of your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport that will help. Our team at Kearny Mesa Hyundai talks with customers just like you about the ways that they can save money on fuel costs throughout the summer and beyond. Doing so will add up and free some of your funds to use on other things, such as a road trip behind the wheel of your Hyundai car.

Mindful Driving – Whenever possible, try to limit the amount of accelerating and decelerating as you drive. Staying at a steady speed and within the speed limit will cut back on the amount of fuel that you are using by around 5 percent.

Use Your Features – When you have a vehicle that includes cruise control, you simply set it to maintain your speed without overuse of the gas pedal. If you are driving and the temperatures are on the rise, use your air conditioner instead of rolling the windows down as this can cause your engine to drag and use more fuel.

Tire Check – Always inspect your tires for safety and proper inflation. Failing to do so could make it so that you are putting more wear on your engine, using more fuel, and leaving you susceptible to breaking down on the side of the road with a flat tire.

Regardless of your summer plans or the model that you own, you can count on our trusted staff in our Hyundai service center to take care of any and all maintenance needs you have. Not only can we inspect your vehicle and perform service but we will be glad to give you fuel-saving advice. Call us today in the service center at Kearny Mesa Hyundai at (844) 528-5607.
