One of the most important factors into improving fuel mileage is to use the correct kind of gasoline. Never put Kerosene or Diesel Fuel into any gasoline engine vehicles. Running the wrong type of fuel through the system can cause catastrophic engine damage. The best thing to do to improve your gas mileage is to properly maintain your vehicle. Dirty air filters will cause air flow restriction resulting in the vehicle using more gas.

Replacing your air filter at a regular interval will help improve your gas mileage. Tire pressure is also essential to improving your gas mileage. Having under-inflated tires creates drag that the vehicle's power train must overcome, wasting fuel. Having over-inflated tires causes a rough ride as well as decreases gas mileage.
