Visit us at Peterborough Mitsubishi and explore our new Mitsubishi EV/PHEV inventory, featuring models with electrified powertrains that will save you money on fuel. Driving a fuel-efficient model from our selection and following the fuel-efficient driving techniques will allow you to reduce your fuel usage significantly.

Tips For Saving Fuel:


Accelerate Gently

Accelerating gently from a stop is the best way to conserve fuel and keep your vehicle's engine operating within its most efficient power band, allowing you to reach cruising speed without wasting fuel.

Maintain A Steady Speed

Once you reach the posted cruising speed for the road, avoid passing vehicles or changing your speed since that can cause more fuel to be used. Instead, you will want to maintain the same driving speed to use minimal fuel while travelling to your destination.

Anticipate Traffic

Always anticipating upcoming traffic is a great way to reduce fuel usage. Be sure to avoid accelerating when approaching slower-moving traffic and avoid driving in rush time if possible.

Avoid Speeding

Speeding requires your vehicle's engine to operate at a higher RPMs and will likely put you in situations where you will need to brake more often, causing your vehicle to use more fuel than cruising at the posted speed limit.

Coast To Decelerate

Once you see traffic starting to slow down or stop, you will want to coast and take your foot off the gas to reduce fuel usage. Following this tip will also help you avoid getting to the light too quickly and idling.
