New Kia Sportage

The 2016 Kia Sportage will provide you with a lot of things. A powerful, turbocharged engine, quick and responsive steering, lots of features, and overall a truly fun time behind the wheel. But like most SUVs, fuel economy isn't nearly as good as that in smaller cars. Luckily, there are some things you can do to improve your fuel economy. Here's how.

 

Drive the Speed Limit: Being a speed demon may get you places faster – sometimes – but it can also cause a big decrease in fuel economy. Driving over 55 mph will burn through gas much more quickly. One reason for this is that aerodynamic drag greatly increases the faster you drive because it takes more fuel to power your car through the air. It may require more patience to drive slower, but obeying the speed limit is better on fuel economy, and much much safer.

 

Avoid Aggressive Driving: Did you know that how you drive affects fuel economy? For instance, if you are an aggressive driver, your fuel economy will decrease. In fact, frequent bursts of acceleration and braking can reduce fuel economy by two to three mpg. To avoid this drop in fuel economy, opt for maintaining a steady pace when on the highway.

 

Reduce Unnecessary Drag: When driving at fast highway speeds, 50 percent of engine power goes to overcoming aerodynamic drag. To avoid this, don't carry cargo on top of your vehicle when not necessary. This even includes bike racks, which can reduce fuel economy by five mpg when empty and up to 35 percent when equipped with bikes.

 

Clean Out Your Car: Take a look at your car's interior. Now look in the trunk. Are you toting anything around that you don't truly need? Hauling extra weight around in your car is an easy way to burn gas more quickly. This is especially true for items over 100 pounds. If you can clean out your car and remove heavy items, go for it! You'll definitely be rewarded in improved fuel economy.

 

Avoid Excessive A/C Use: As summer gets hotter and hotter, it's easy to get carried away with the air conditioner. It's understandable. After all, nobody likes to be uncomfortably hot and sweaty. Unfortunately, excessive A/C use in summer will quickly lower fuel economy. Try only using the A/C when truly needed and also don't have the temperature lower than necessary.
