increase fuel efficiency

With hybrid options like the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, outstanding fuel efficiency is becoming more accessible than ever. But did you know that there are changes you could be making to your driving habits right now that will increase fuel efficiency no matter the vehicle? These tips will help you save on fuel starting today.

 

Don’t Idle

 

Letting your car idle is bad for the environment and bad for your fuel consumption as well. If you know that your vehicle will be inactive for more than 10 seconds, turn it off to make the most of your fuel.

 

Cool Off Efficiently

 

If you’re driving in the city, windows down is the most fuel efficient way of cooling your car in the summertime. On highway driving, however, using the air conditioning is the better option as windows down decreases aerodynamics at high speeds.

 

Brake and Accelerate Slowly

 

Heavy braking and rapid acceleration use up gasoline that you could otherwise be saving. Get in the habit of accelerating slowly and letting off the gas to slow down rather than braking last minute.

 

Lighten the Load

 

Extra weight in your car takes away from fuel efficiency. If you want the most from your car’s performance, keep it free of clutter both in the cabin and in the trunk.

New Outlander PHEV Makes U.S. Debut

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi has been holding back one of its niche favorites from U.S. shores for years. While the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport have been making a splash in the American market, the Outlander name has also been earning green car credibility elsewhere with a plug-in hybrid model. The new Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has finally made its way to the U.S. for the 2018 model year, bringing with it affordable efficiency like you’ve never seen.

 

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has all the bold, modern design and adventurous elespirit people have come to expect from the standard Outlander Sport, with the five-passenger design and upscale driving dynamics reflecting the vehicle on which it’s based. However, the powertrain provides a convenient plug-in hybrid system – one of the few on the market to also come with All-Wheel Control and amenities like DC Quick Charging. Quick charging allows drivers to get the Outlander PHEV back to an 80% charge in as little as 25 minutes. It’s even rated at 74 MPGe.*

 

The new Outlander PHEV is like nothing else on the market, and the few hybrid SUVs that come close are far above its price point. If you’re looking for an affordable and capable way to drive green, check out the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV at Pantili Mitsubishi.
