If youíre not sure, hereís a look at four parts that can be easily replaced and one that should be removed when not in use, as a starting point, to help ensure your car, SUV or pickup isnít drinking more than its fair share of fuel.

Nice to see it all in one place. I would add brakes, wheel bearings, and diff oil to the list, all of which can affect mileage if worn or mis-adjusted.

I used to lose 5mpg on my Toyota Tercel when I had the ski rack on top. It didn't weigh anything--it was the wind resistance!

I got an extra 5 mpg (city) from increasing my tire pressure from 30 psi to 60 psi.
