TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Essential Summer Car-Care Tips

Before hitting the road this summer, make sure your ride is in good condition.

1. Make a service stop. We'll leave it to your mechanic to tell you what needs to be done, but a quick tune-up before a long trip is a good idea -- especially because it could improve your fuel economy by 4% to 12%.

2. Ditch the junk in your trunk. No hip-hop reference here -- just clean out your car. The more you haul, the more fuel you burn. An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your mpg by up to 2%.

3. Prepare for the worst. You should keep an emergency kit with some necessities in your car in case you get stuck.

We don't want to be a drag, but keep in mind that driving faster than 60 miles per hour decreases your fuel efficiency -- each 5 mph over 60 is like paying an extra 24 cents per gallon for gas. That money is better spent on a snack at the next rest stop.
