(ARA) — If your family has started to rethink your travels because of fuel prices, you may be looking for ways to save a few dollars at the gas pump when you fill up your truck. And if purchasing a new, more fuel-efficient truck isn’t an option for your family, here are some ways you can save gas money now. * Fuel choice: The first place to start saving is at the pump. Choose the fuel with the lowest octane level possible for your vehicle. Passing on pricey premium gasoline could save you hundreds of dollars a year, according to the Car Care Council (CCC), while using it won’t boost your truck’s performance. Once your tank is filled, make sure you tighten your gas cap to prevent fuel from evaporating. Loose, missing or damaged gas caps cause 147 million gallons of gasoline to evaporate each year, according to the CCC. * Driving style: The less you drive, the less you’ll spend on gasoline. When you must get behind the wheel, consider your driving style. If you like to get up to speed quickly, and slow down at the last minute for a stop light or sign, you’re likely burning extra fuel. Instead, stop

MILEAGE Continued from Page 2 and start gently, use cruise control when possible and reduce the amount of trips you make each day to reduce your gas consumption. * Reduce drag: Smooth out the aerodynamics of your truck with a truck bed cover, or a tonneau cover. Such covers, like the Access RollUp Cover, manufactured by Agri-Cover Inc., a North Dakota truck accessory company, are the easiest step you can take to see immediate gas mileage improvement. The roll-up cover is lockable, so not only does it help reduce your drag while traveling at high speed, it also protects your gear and improves the look of your vehicle. This cover installs easily with a clamp-on installation and can be rolled up behind the cab when not in use. For more information on the Access Roll-Up Cover and to find out how much gas money you could save, visit www.accesscover.com. * Maintenance: Checking and changing your oil is one of the most overlooked maintenance items, according to most auto body technicians. Oil is responsible for reducing wear caused by friction between moving parts in your truck’s engine. It also helps to remove harmful substances from the engine. But if your oil isn’t clean, it can’t do its job appropriately. Also make sure the oil, air and fuel filters are clean as well. Once you’re finished checking your truck’s engine components, check your tires to see if they have the proper air pressure as recommended by your truck manufacturer. Proper inflation can improve your gas mileage by up to 3 percent.

How your credit score drives your auto insurance rates

(ARA) — You know that where you live, what you drive and how you drive can affect how much you pay for auto insurance. But did you know that your credit score can also influence how much your insurance company charges you for coverage? Most vehicle insurers now use your credit score as one of many factors when determining your level of risk, and how much to charge you for insurance. Generally, the higher your credit score the more likely you are to be eligible for an insurer’s best rates. If your credit score is low, you could get auto insurance quotes that are thousands of dollars higher than those given to consumers with high credit scores. While some consumer advocacy groups object to the practice, insurance companies say research supports the use of credit scores as a predictor of potential risk. The practice is rooted in the idea that people who manage personal finances responsibly are more likely to be responsible in other areas as well — including behind the wheel. If you plan to buy a car, apply for new insurance or just want to lower your auto insurance rate, here are some things you should know about vehicle insurance and credit scores: * Most vehicle insurance companies do consider your credit score when determining your auto insurance quote. Don’t forget, however, that your credit score is just one factor; your driving record, the type of vehicle you drive, where you live, how many miles you drive each year, your gender and age, even your education level are all other factors that insurance companies consider. * A vehicle insurer looks at your credit score differently than the way a potential lender might. For example, an insurer is likely going to be more interested in how reliably you pay your bills than in how many different types of credit are on your credit report. Insurance companies try to use your financial reliability and sensibility, as reflected in your credit score, to predict how reliable and sensible you’re likely to be as a driver and vehicle owner. * Your credit score is a fluid number that changes. Whenever a change occurs in your credit report, your score can change — going up or down, depending upon the change and its impact on your finances. If your score has improved significantly since the last time you applied for auto insurance, it may be worth it to see if your improved score will qualify you for a better rate. The Motley Fool website recommends you check your credit score to see how it might be affecting your auto insurance rates. * Checking your credit score is fast and easy, thanks to online resources like Freecreditscore.com. The website allows you to access a credit score when you enroll in credit monitoring membership. While this score is not the specific scoring model an auto insurer may look at when reviewing your policy application, it can help educate you about your credit standing. By monitoring your credit you’ll be able to see how changes in your credit report can affect your score, and you’ll receive credit score alerts whenever your score changes. One of the main complaints consumer groups have made about the practice of using credit scores to set auto rates is that credit reports may contain errors. By monitoring your report regularly, you can help ensure it remains error-free and that your insurance company is looking at the most accurate possible snapshot of your credit history.
