Good Business doesn’t focus only on Corporation but also in personal business. Below is a tips of facts which are recommended in order to help manage your personal income in terms of your vehicle. These facts will help you save even more money on Gasoline, and maintenance.

  1. Don’t continuously turn your car on and off. In traffic, most new cars turn off/on automatically to save on Gasoline
  2. Most people argue that you don’t need to warm up your car before driving it but I’m a bit different.
    • It is true that, newer vehicles can be driven within seconds of being started however it’s best to waste a few pennies worth of Gasoline and warm up your vehicle for 3 minutes every morning, rather than stressing your vehicle.

    • Wait out until you’ve hit 5,000-10,000 miles on the vehicle before hitting 90 to 100+mph. This can wear out your engine and hurt your wallet down the road.

    • This helps your engine and especially with sustaining the MPGs of your vehicle.
  5. Be careful where you fill your Gas tank.
