Drivers’ priorities change, and at Maserati of Omaha, we find that fuel efficiency is a top-of-mind concern for many of our customers. The good news is that you need not buy new to find a vehicle that goes the distance without stretching your finances too thin. Our selection of used cars in Omaha has plenty of alternatives.

What to Look for Instead

You may be tempted to shop by EPA fuel economy estimates. But you can also examine the kinds of things that save gas in real-world use.

Vehicle Size and Weight

A truck or SUV can provide plenty of space and a lot of power. That comes at a price, however. Going smaller saves not only space in your garage, but money in your wallet as well.

Vehicle Technology

We don’t suggest looking for the oldest and cheapest used car you can find. Newer engines often deploy tech like turbochargers or engine stop-start features to wring more power out of lower displacement. A Maserati Certified Pre-Owned vehicle can help you save gas.

Hybrid and EV Options

As newer hybrids and EVs come to market, you’ll have opportunities to upgrade to greener and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Hybrids combine electric motors with gas engines for a bit more security on long-distance jaunts. EVs, meanwhile, let you forego trips to the pump entirely while offering lower maintenance and zero emissions.

Driving Habits

How you drive is as important as what you drive.

  • Good tires with proper pressure save fuel; rotate and change your tires regularly
  • Maintenance helps gas mileage, so visit our Maserati service center on schedule
  • Drive the speed limit
  • Remember that hard acceleration, excessive idling, and even warming up your vehicle all waste gasoline
  • Stop-and-go traffic takes its toll on your gas tank and your nerves alike; plan your trip’s route and time to avoid it as best you can

We want you to enjoy every drive, and we’re equipped to help. Visit our Maserati dealership in Omaha for quality used cars, great trade-in values, and much more.
