Commercial trucks aren’t exactly fuel efficient, so you’ll need to do whatever you can to increase your fuel economy. In addition to keeping an eye on tire pressure and getting regular oil changes, the best thing you can do to improve fuel economy is to be a more fuel efficient driver. This means changing your driving behaviors to limit excess strain on the vehicle so you burn less fuel. Watch this video to hear more about what you can do as a driver to increase fuel efficiency.
