Four Tips to Help You Pass More Pumps
When it comes to running a successful business, being efficient with every dollar is key. Fortunately, your NV200® Compact Cargo is built to give you a great head start. And with these additional efficiency tips, you can take your business and your dollar even further every time you hit the road.
You may remember a time not so long ago when gas was much cheaper than it is today. Well, those days are probably gone forever. So finding ways to conserve fuel is pretty important. Fortunately, your NV200 Compact Cargo gets you off to a great start with its 25 combined MPG. [] (That’s just one of the reasons why it was named Vincentric “Best Fleet Value in America" [] for 2017.) Now, here are some other great ways to save fuel:
WATCH YOUR SPEED
If you’re making deliveries in the city, this should be easy. But if you’re out on the road, it’s a different story. Just remember that the faster you go, as aerodynamic drag increases, the more fuel it will take to power your vehicle to your destination.
MAP IT OUT
One great way to conserve more fuel is by avoiding traffic and finding the quickest routes to the next job. NissanConnect® with Navigation [] can help. It offers real‐time map updates so that your GPS [] can help you find the best way to get from point A to point B. It also offers detailed traffic updates with SiriusXM® [] Traffic so you can avoid that gas‐burning gridlock.
You can improve gas mileage by 0.6% on average — up to 3% in some cases — by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Under‐inflated tires can lower gas mileage by about 0.2% for every 1 psi drop in the average pressure of all tires. In addition to the fuel savings, properly inflated tires are safer and tend to last longer. Helpful hint: in the colder winter months, it’s a good idea to check your tire pressure often.
Here’s another reason to always use the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil. You can improve your gas mileage by 1%‐2%. Also, be on the lookout for motor oil that says “Energy Conserving” as it contains friction‐reducing additives that also help conserve fuel.
We encourage you to take these money‐saving tips into consideration the next time you’re out in your NV200 Compact Cargo. We think you’ll see a big difference, both in your fuel tank and your wallet.
