To get the most mileage from every gallon of gas, take these simple maintenance steps. First, maintain your tires at the recommended pressure levels. Every 1 psi drop in pressure decreases gas mileage by 0.3%. Next, use motor oil with the correct viscosity for the season. It takes more energy for internal engine components to push through thick oil than thinner grades. It also pays big dividends to replace a faulty oxygen sensor, which monitors the amount of oxygen in the exhaust and leads to adjustments in the air/fuel mixture. Replacing a damaged oxygen sensor can improve fuel mileage by as much as 40%. It also pays to replace or adjust sticky brake calipers, which place unnecessary drag on wheels.

HINT: Take a look at the driver's side doorpost sticker or the owner's manual to find the minimum tire inflation pressure. The maximum pressure printed on the tire's sidewall is the maximum allowable pressure, not the recommended pressure.
