More Tips On Improving The MPG Rates On Your Toyota Pickup

If you've got a Toyota Tacoma or Tundra pickup, chances are you could use a little advice on getting better fuel economy. We all remember- with a wistful sigh- what gas price used to be a decade or so ago. Ah, for the days of the $1.35 per gallon fill-up. With today's gas prices, and the ongoing possibility of future price per gallon increases, anything that can improve the mileage per gallon rate on your Toyota pickup is good to know, so check out the following tips for increasing your fuel economy:

* Keep Your Toyota's Engine In Shape: Besides keeping an eye on your Toyota pickup oxygen sensor, performing regular engine maintenance and tuning can have a huge effect on your mileage per gallon rate, so keep your engine in shape for optimal performance and fuel economy.

* Say No To Saggy Tires: As with most things in life, there's a balance to be kept with air in your truck's tires. While over-inflated tires leave you vulnerable to skids and blowouts, under-inflated tires can significantly lower your mileage per gallon rate. Although your tires should specify an air pressure maximum on their sidewalls, this is not the optimum air pressure for your tires. That can be found in the owner's manual for your Toyota Tacoma or Tundra pickup, and may also be posted on a sticker on your glove box or the doorjamb on the driver's side of the vehicle.

* Stick To Recommended Motor Oil: Car and truck manufacturers recommend specific motor oil grades for a good reason-engines are designed to achieve optimal performance with certain grades of motor oil. Using the wrong grade for your engine can reduce your effective mileage to gallon ratio, so stick to the grade recommended by Toyota pickup's manufacturer.

* Get A More Efficient Air Filter: Clogged air filters can reduce your Toyota's engine performance, and may affect your fuel economy by up to 14%. Likewise, replacing a standard air filter with a high performance model, such as the Toyota pickup K&N air filter model 33-2050-1 or E-2605-1, can improve both engine performance and fuel economy- and K&N's cleanable air filters have the added caveat that they are reusable- helping you save money and the environment. With the flack many of us get for driving a truck in today's eco-conscious culture, anything that helps lower your environmental footprint is a definite bonus.
