Factors That Can Affect Your Subaru Outback MPG

The best way to keep your Subaru Outback performing at its optimal efficiency is by following through on routine maintenance. This is especially true when it comes to the oil change. Oil ensures that your engine parts are lubricated so they can move fluidly.

When you’re due for an oil change, and your parts aren’t being lubricated enough, it can cause your engine to work harder. This requires your engine to burn up more fuel than usual to maintain its normal performance.

Another factor that can affect your Subaru Outback MPG is weight. If you have all the seats filled, or the cargo area packed all the way, it’ll put more weight on your vehicle. Like running on old oil, this can cause your vehicle to use more fuel to keep up with the performance that you’re looking for as you press the accelerator.
