CAN DRIVING HABITS AFFECT MY MPG?
There are other factors to consider that affect your battery charge and fuel costs. This can include the amount of time you spend idling, whether you drive on the highway more often or the city streets and the type of fuel that you put into your vehicle. Premium fuel often gets you better fuel efficiency numbers. Properly maintaining your vehicle is also important when it comes to good fuel efficiency numbers and a proper battery charge.
