Great experience

I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.

5 Fuel Economy Tips for Hybrid Vehicles

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 12, 2016 at 08:35AM by Michelle Bogle)
used autos vancouver bc hybridFuel economy is a hot topic for drivers looking to save at the pumps and go further on less. While many fuel economy tips for conventional gas-powered cars and trucks also apply to hybrid vehicles, there are a number of additional tips that hybrid owners should be aware of.
 
At Key West Ford, we are your premier retailer of new and used Ford vehicles – including hybrids, plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles – and we’re here with five easy tips to help you boost your hybrid’s fuel economy:
 
1. Read Your Owner's Manual
With so many hybrid vehicles on the road these days, it’s important to remember that different brands and models can vary significantly – what may apply to one hybrid vehicle may not apply to the next. That’s why it’s important to read your owner’s manual to understand your specific vehicle’s fuel economy, battery life and driving range.
 
2. Avoid Hard Braking
By stopping and braking gently, your vehicle’s regenerative braking system can recover energy from the forward motion and store it as electricity. Hard braking causes hybrid vehicles to utilize the friction brakes, which do not recover energy.
 
3. Use Accessories Sparingly
Heating, cooling and entertainment systems can take a toll on a hybrid vehicle’s fuel economy. Use these accessories sparingly to help maximize efficiency and electric range. 
 
4. Opt for Economy Mode
To maximize your hybrid’s fuel economy, utilize the “economy mode” whenever possible. This mode limits certain vehicle functions, like acceleration rate, to help you conserve fuel and improve efficiency.
 
5. Charge Your Battery
For plug-in hybrids, a fully charged battery will ensure your vehicle uses as much electricity as possible without having to rely on fuel. Less fuel means fewer visits to the pumps.
