How to save money with gasoline: What to look for and avoid

As the country gears up for the Thanksgiving holiday and as the price of gasoline continues to drop, it is important to know how much gas you should use for your car, said James R. Anderson, a vice president at AAA.

The answer, he said, depends on where you live and how much fuel you have.

The more gas you have in your vehicle, the better the fuel economy, he added.

So how much is enough?

If you have a family of four, that’s enough to fill up your car for two or three days, he explained.

For those of you who are smaller, a family size of two or less is probably not enough.

If you drive a hybrid, it’s best to use less fuel, said David R. Lueck, president and chief executive of the National Association of Manufacturers.

The average family gas mileage on a hybrid vehicle is about 55 mpg, compared with 65 mpg for a gas-powered vehicle, Lueks spokesman Tom C. Wurzer said.

A more modest fuel economy is also better for fuel efficiency.

A car with a hybrid can get an average of 20 miles per gallon, while the average fuel economy for a gasoline-powered car is around 25 mpg.

It’s also a good idea to buy more than one car per year, as the average family vehicle gets about 2,000 miles on a single fuel cell vehicle, according to AAA.

You may be able to use more fuel if you have an automatic transmission or a battery that can keep up with the vehicle’s speed.

But if you drive your car daily, a hybrid engine is a good bet, Lues said.

Most cars that use gasoline, like the Chevrolet Cruze, get their fuel economy from the engine’s compression ratio, said Todd W. O’Toole, chief engineer at GM and president and CEO of American Petroleum Institute.

If that ratio is too high, the car will run hotter, and the engine will start to leak fuel.

But in the Cruze and others, that leak is rare, he noted.

And when it happens, you may not notice it.

A hybrid engine makes a car more fuel efficient than a gas engine, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be better off with a gasoline engine, Loes said.

For example, a gasoline car is lighter and more powerful, so it makes sense to buy a bigger, heavier, more expensive gasoline car, O’Reilly said.

And a diesel car, which can be driven a lot less, may also be a better choice, he pointed out.

If your car’s not a hybrid but still has a gas generator, you could buy a hybrid for that purpose.

A typical car can get around 60 miles per tank of fuel.

For comparison, a Chevy Camaro or Ford Fusion will get around 20 mpg with a standard diesel engine, according, Lueders.

The only other vehicle on this list that’s a hybrid is the Chevrolet Volt, which uses two engines and can get up to 75 miles per charge.

A diesel car is much less efficient than gasoline, but it’s still a good choice, said Robert S. Miller, a professor at the University of California, Davis, who studies fuel efficiency and sustainability.

And even though you might be able get more mileage with a gas car, it still means you’ll get more fuel mileage for the same price, Miller said.

You’ll probably pay more for gas if you buy a vehicle that doesn`t have an electric motor, but you’ll save more fuel by using a hybrid.

That’s true whether you buy gas- or hybrid-powered vehicles.

Some gas stations don’t accept electric vehicles, Miller noted.

But you can still get a good price by buying a fuel-cell car, according the AAA report.

And many car dealerships will take the hybrid and convert it into an electric vehicle.

In the future, gas prices may be a factor in buying gas- and hybrid-electric vehicles.

A few years ago, gas was expensive.

Today, it`s not.

But the price may be rising again.

The National Association for Clean Transportation said in December that the price for a gallon of regular unleaded had fallen by about 15 cents to $2.19 per gallon.

The gas industry has been trying to reduce that by a large margin, said Alan S. B. Brown, president of the AAA.

That is a huge step forward, he told the AP.

But there is still much room for improvement, Brown said.

“The gas tax is the biggest impediment to adoption of new technologies,” he said.
