5 Best RV Fuel Saving Tips

5 Best RV Fuel Saving Tips

Adventure awaits in the beauty of Ontario, but sometimes the price at the pump can curb the excitement. But don't fret! The Hitch House is here with five essential tips to make the most of your fuel budget on your RV travels.

 

1. Tap into Grocery Store Discount Fuel Programs

 

In Canada, grocery chains such as Loblaws offer PC Optimum points that you can use to save on fuel at participating gas stations. It's straightforward: sign up for the loyalty program, shop for groceries, and accumulate points. Watch for promotions on their app or website, purchase gift cards, and complete surveys for added effectiveness. Remember to use the points before expiration - they are as good as cash!

 

2. Utilize Discount Fuel Programs and Apps

GasBuddy, a free app, can help locate the most affordable fuel prices in your vicinity. The app has a 'Pay with GasBuddy' card option for further savings. You save on every litre purchased, and it's usable at thousands of gas stations across Canada.

 

3. Leverage Credit Card Points

3. Leverage Credit Card Points

 

Some might call it travel hacking, but collecting credit card points is a simple strategy to save on fuel. Many Canadian credit cards offer lucrative rewards programs, with some providing extra points for travel-related purchases, including fuel. Depending on the card, these points can be converted into cash or applied as credits on your statement.

 

4. Opt for Local and Regional Travels

 

With its scenic beauty and a wide array of attractions, Ontario offers ample travel opportunities. Exploring local and regional areas helps save fuel, reducing those long cross-province drives. If you desire an extended journey, ensure it fits your budget, and find other ways to balance the added fuel cost.

 

5. Drive Efficiently and Plan Your Travel Pace

5. Drive Efficiently and Plan Your Travel Pace

 

The way you drive your RV has a significant impact on fuel consumption. Maintaining a consistent speed, ideally below 105 km/h (around 65 mph), can dramatically improve fuel economy. Also, plan your travel times to bypass heavy traffic and avoid toll roads, unless they offer a more fuel-efficient route.
