With gas prices skyrocketing to over $5 a gallon in some places, people are spending $50 to $100 or even more every time they fill up their tank.
If it goes any higher we might need to revert to The Flintstones mode of transportation!
But in all seriousness what can we do to make our tank of gas go further?
There’s nothing we can do about the price of gas, but there are ways to get the most out of a tank of gas.
Here at BestLine Racing we know that gas and fuel in general is a precious necessity these days and we need to do everything we can to keep our cars on the road and get to our jobs, school, the store and more.

We know that many of us like to flirt with E and ride on fumes but we highly recommend against that. You never know when you’re going to get stopped in traffic, or when there might be a gas shortage in your area, so it’s best to stay in the mid range of your gas levels. Plus, this gives you a little extra flexibility to find a place that has a more affordable price.
Free apps and websites like GasBuddy can help you find the best deals on gas wherever you are and fuel perks can give you a few cents off per gallon.
There are even some places like Sam's Club that have special gas stations that members can use that give them a larger discount.
Be aware of gas stations that are trying to use a water/gas line mixture to save money for themselves. Keep an eye out for online tips to give you insight and keep you away from those places.

In our last article, “Do Fuel Boosters Help Gas Mileage?” we discussed what fuel boosters are and what they do for your vehicle's performance.
