Heavily loading a vehicle may reduce fuel economy at any speed.

Carrying unnecessary weight may reduce fuel economy (approximately 1 mpg [0.4 km/L] is lost for every 400 lb [180 kg] of weight carried).

Adding certain accessories to your vehicle (for example; bug deflectors, rollbars/light bars, running boards, ski/luggage racks) may reduce fuel economy.

Using fuel blended with alcohol may lower fuel economy.

Fuel economy may decrease with lower temperatures during the first 810 miles (1216 km) of driving.

Driving on flat terrain offers improved fuel economy as compared to driving on hilly terrain.

Transmissions give their best fuel economy when operated in the top cruise gear and with steady pressure on the gas pedal.
