Things to Consider when Purchasing a Fuel Efficient Vehicle

Purchasing a Fuel Efficient Vehicle
Most car-buyers can agree that one of the top things that they look for in a vehicle is fuel efficiency. Below are a list of factors you should consider, in order to get the best fuel economy possible for your new car.
The first thing you should look for is the vehicle’s EnerGuide label. While this may not be entirely accurate (your driving habits, weather, etc. will affect your fuel efficiency), it will give you a good indication of what you can expect your car’s fuel economy to be.
Next, you should be aware that manual transmission is not superior to automatic transmission in today’s day and age. However, it would be a good idea to find a car that has semi-automatic transmission, since they take the best features of both.
Be aware that smaller cars are typically more efficient than larger ones. If you buy a vehicle with a loads of cargo room and passenger space, prepare to pay for it at the pump.
Finally, find out if you can get a discount from your insurance company, as some may be willing to support environmentally-responsible driving.
