When it comes to getting the best gas mileage from your car, proper maintenance is one the biggest factor. But let's look at a few simple tricks you can use to get the most out of each fill-up.

Don't Carry More than Needed
Random junk in your trunk can weigh down your vehicle, and in so doing, force it to work harder. So always do what you can to lighten your car's load.

Keep Up with Maintenance
Consistent check-ups with oil changes, tune-ups, and tire pressure monitoring will keep your car in tip-top shape while churning out maximum MPG.

Track Your Mileage
Having your current mileage as a baseline can help you keep track of any dips in your MPG. To calculate this, divide the number of miles traveled on a full tank by the number of gallons consumed. If you see this mileage dip significantly, it could be signs of an engine problem.

Drive Conservatively 
High-speed driving and acceleration can bump fuel consumption by up to 20%. Slower, gradual acceleration, as well as braking, can help you get the most out of your fuel.

Park in the Shade
This prevents the sunlight from evaporating fuel in your tank.
