DRIVE SENSIBLY

Rapid acceleration and braking wastes gas. Avoiding jackrabbit starts and stops can increase fuel economy by 5%.
MPG tips for Subarus

OBSERVE SPEED LIMITS

Fuel economy drops 2% for every mile per hour that you drive over 55. Just slowing down from 75 to 65 mph can increase mpg up to 15%.

REMOVE EXCESS WEIGHT

Avoid traveling with unnecessary items, especially heavy ones - for every extra 100 pounds that a vehicle carries, fuel economy drops by 2%.
MPG tips for Subarus

AVOID EXCESSIVE IDLING

Idling longer than 60 seconds consumes more gas than stopping and restarting. If your stop is going to take more than a minute, turn the engine off.

COMBINE TRIPS

Several short trips can use twice as much fuel as one long trip of the same distance. Save gas and time by combining your errands.
MPG tips for Subarus

FILL UP EARLY OR LATE

Gas has greater density at lower temperatures. Fill up during the cooler early-morning or late-evening hours, and you'll get more gas for your money.
MPG tips for Subarus

USE THE PROPER OCTANE

Higher octane gas won't boost mpg, so unless your vehicle requires it, it's a waste of money. Using lower octane gas in a vehicle that does require it can result in power loss and engine damage.

DON'T OVERFILL

Topping off a tank only results in gas sloshing around or seeping out. Don't waste the extra fuel dollars - stop pumping at the first click of an automatic fuel nozzle.>

TIGHTEN THE GAS CAP

A loose, damaged or missing gas cap can allow gas to evaporate and cause a loss of up to 2 mpg.

CLOSE THE WINDOWS

At highway speeds, open windows cause air drag that burns extra fuel. Rolling them up can increase fuel economy by 10%.
