A forgotten maintenance step that impacts gas mileage is wheel alignment. Getting a proper four wheel alignment not only improves handling and ride feel, it also increases gas mileage. When your vehicle’s wheels are not perfectly aligned they cause additional friction with the road lowering your gas mileage. You should always make sure your tires are properly inflated and your wheels aligned to gain the most from your fuel economy. Spring for the four wheel alignment instead of just the common front wheel alignment only. The two rear tires are often neglected when doing alignments. However the extra effort of aligning all four tires only increase your gas mileage.
