Tips to maximize fuel efficiency on your next road trip

by | Aug 1, 2023 | Automotive

After long winters, Canadians want to make the most of the warmer days, and a road trip is often on the summer bucket list.

There are a lot of considerations at play when planning a road trip with friends or family, from gas mileage to environmental impact. There’s no hiding the fact that gas-powered vehicles have an impact on our climate and are expensive to fill up. Here are some tips on how to plan a perfect road trip while cutting down on gas consumption.

Take shorter road trips:
Consider exploring local areas close to home; this results in a lower carbon footprint and gives you the opportunity to support small Canadian businesses.

Plan your route:
Mapping the most efficient route will not only prevent you from getting lost, but it will also save on gas and fuel emissions.

Drive electric or hybrid:
You can significantly reduce your fuel consumption by driving a hybrid vehicle, or eliminate gas entirely with a pure electric one. Volvo Car Canada’s Recharge line-up of electrified vehicles provide luxury and comfort perfect for road trips.
