Check out our energy efficient driving tips from MINI of Santa Monica, so that you can improve MPG and save more at the Culver City gas pumps.

  1. Don’t gun it. – Driving fast around West Hollywood can be enjoyable, but doing so can increase your gas bill. Accelerate more slowly to save on fuel.
  2. Slow down on the freeway. – Although you may want to drive quickly on those Los Angeles highways, it’s not a bad idea to try to avoid that temptation. Most vehicles are built to get their best fuel economy at around 55 MPG.
  3. Cruise in your highest gear. – When you’re on the freeway with cruise control engaged, make sure the vehicle is in top gear for the best MPG results.
  4. Shut off the AC. – Mar Vista sure can get blistering. But if you encounter one of the more temperate days in southern California, you may want to just prop open a window, or turn the AC down a bit.
  5. Perform regular vehicle maintenance. – Vehicle maintenance is important to maintaining your vehicle’s health and value, but it also improves fuel efficiency. Following your maintenance schedule is crucial. Regular oil changes, tire pressure checks, tire rotations, tire changes, wheel alignments, and even the use of high-quality motor oil will all help improve your fuel economy.
