Tips on How to Maximize Your Ford Fusion's MPG

There are plenty of ways that you can get even more out of your sedan's fuel, regardless of whether you have a gas engine, an electric engine, or a hybrid. There's a variety of factors to focus on with your Ford Fusion to improve its MPG efficiency. Follow these helpful tips:

  • Get regular oil changes, air filter changes, and, when applicable, spark plug replacements.
  • Factor in your cargo's weight-the less weight your vehicle carries, the less fuel it uses.
  • Keep an eye on your tires-if one or more of your tires isn't properly inflated, it can affect the performance as well as the vehicle's fuel efficiency.
  • Drive reasonably-don't speed or slam on your brakes since this can greatly reduce your vehicle's fuel economy.
  • Don't idle for too long (look into getting a Ford Fusion with auto stop/start technology).
  • Park in the shade-this can help reduce fuel evaporation.
