Summer is slowly starting to fade into fall, but the nice weather isn't completely gone yet. You still have time to squeeze in one more summer adventure. Why not make it a road trip? Long drives are fun and full of good moments, however before you embark on an adventure on the road, make sure your vehicle is in the best conditions. ALF Marketing in Hagerstown has some tips to help you plan a fun and safe end of summer road trip.

Plan Ahead

Get together with the people you plan on traveling with to establish a plan. Pick a destination and a route with interesting spots along the way. As you choose a route, take into consideration closed roads, road conditions and stopping points. Booking hotel rooms ahead of time will ensure you have a guaranteed place to stay. Try not to rely solely on electronic devices for navigation since batteries can run out and you might find yourself on a road without a satellite signal.

Listen to Your Body

If you're driving, it's important that you're alert and concentrated on the road. You should get a good night's sleep the night before you head out and eat a nutritious breakfast. Pack some snacks and water in your car just in case you get hungry or thirsty while driving. If you feel tired or drowsy, pull over and take a break. If possible, switch drivers and take some time to rest in the backseat. If temperatures are high, staying properly hydrated will help you fight fatigue and stay alert.

Get Your Car Inspected

Before heading out on your trip, make sure you have a reliable car that can get you to your destination and back. Choose a car that will fit you, your passengers and your luggage comfortably. When you decide on a vehicle, take it for a professional inspection. A professional will let you know what your car needs before your trip. Get your inspection at least two weeks before your trip because some repairs can take a while.Don't forget to check your oil and the other fluids in your car before heading on your trip.

Have a budget

Having a budget will allow you to distribute your money wisely and have enough for the things you really want to do. Budgeting will help you not only to identify the important things but also the situations where you might waste your money, it will also help you adapt to unforeseen events which are very common during long trips.And if we are talking about money, no one enjoys spending their hard earned money at the pump. The high gas prices can even make you wish didn't have to drive anywhere. To help you avoid wasting gas, ALF Marketing in Hagerstown has some simple tips that can help save you money at the pump.

Simple Tips to Help Increase Your Fuel Economy

Slow Down for Better Fuel Economy

If you're running late or are in a hurry, stepping on the gas is very tempting. However, slowing down and going the speed limit can help you save gas. Avoid accelerating quickly and coming to quick stops. Instead, drive at the speed limit and give yourself enough space to ease into a stop. Doing so will help you conserve gas.

Make Sure Your Tires Are Properly Inflated

Tires that are not properly inflated can cause your vehicle to use gas less efficiently. Find out the ideal tire pressure for your specific vehicle. Make sure your tires aren't under inflated or over inflated by checking their pressure weekly or even monthly. Having your tires at the appropriate pressure can increase your fuel economy by up to three percent.

Carry a Lighter Load

Make sure you aren't carrying unnecessary objects in your car that may be weighing it down. A lighter load will ensure you get better gas mileage. If you're going on a road trip, carry only what you need. Make sure you aren't carrying a roof rack on your daily commute if it's not necessary. Objects like roof racks can weigh you down and create wind resistance.Getting your car serviced and its oil changed regularly will also help improve your gas mileage.
