How to Get Better Gas Mileage for Ford Expedition

by Alicia Bodine

Ford Expeditions are known for getting low gas mileage. It is important to be aware of this before you buy one of these. If you have already bought one, though, don't lose heart. There are some things you can do to help your Ford Expedition get better gas mileage. It won't get as good gas mileage as some other vehicles, but you can improve on what you already have.

Keep your Ford Expedition as empty as possible. The more items you store in your Expedition, the heavier the vehicle becomes. This causes you to use more gas.

Go the speed limit. If possible, use the cruise control button. Increasing and decreasing the speed often causes you to use more gas.

Use Techron fuel additive. This fuel additive will clean the fuel line, which will help your Ford Expedition run more smoothly and efficiently.

Make sure the pressure in your tires is correct. You want your tires to have an equal amount of air in them at all times. Most gas attendants can check the air pressure for you at no charge.

Use premium gas when at the pump. This will keep your engine clean and improve your overall gas mileage.

Get a tune-up. Make sure they check all of your fuels and replace your oil every 3,000 miles. Not performing proper maintenance on your Ford Expedition will cause it not to perform up to its capability. If you want the best gas mileage, you have to get the vehicle up to its top performance.

Tip
