What Impacts Fuel Efficiency?

The fuel efficiency provided in this document is given by estimated values from the manufacturer and what you MAY expect to get on average. However, this isn’t the exact gas mileage you will necessary get when driving. So we will discuss some of the major factors

Cargo/Towing

With pickup trucks, it is not unusual to have excess cargo in the bed of your truck or be towing some kind of trailer.

This is probably going to have one of the biggest impacts on fuel efficiency.

The more power required to move the heavier load, the more gas will be consumed to go the same distance.

Driving Behavior

Driving behaviors such as accelerating speed, cruise control, and braking patterns can have an impact on mpg.

For example, a car that accelerates too quickly will use more energy to get up to speed.

Similarly, if you find yourself braking more frequently rather than cruising while driving, you will find yourself using more gas.

Road Conditions

Then of course the road conditions will have an impact on this as well. Hills, swervy roads, and even poor road conditions can impact mpg, usually reducing fuel efficiency.
