Beating Winter Woes by Learning to Drive Warmer in Cold Weather

Get the most out of your driving dollar on even the coldest - MPG stealing days. We want you to know how to cure the cold, or at least increase your efficiency despite the winter's cool regard for your car and its engine.

Although you cannot turn the cold off, there are solid measures you can take to save gas. Combining trips ensure that your engine will be operating at a more optimal temperature for longer periods of time. Short single trips are bad for fuel efficiency, but also doesn't give the fluids in other areas like the transmission to warm up - which increases overall resistance. Also, if you are not already parking in your garage, consider doing so as it will allow your car to warm up faster.

The service department at Route 15 Used Car Center can help you find other areas where you can cut cold weather costs.
