Heavy cargo could be doing more than weighing down your car; it can be weighing down your wallet too. If you can reduce how much you haul in your vehicle, your car can be more aerodynamic and fuel-efficient.

Keep Up with Maintenance
When your vehicle is properly maintained and on time, it will become more efficient and last longer. By keeping up with your tune-ups, oil changes, and other checkups, you can save money on fuel and extend the life of your vehicle.
