HARDEEVILLE, S.C., July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ —

Unfortunately, gas prices have been on the rise recently and drivers have been feeling it in their wallets. With seemingly no relief in sight, more and more drivers are looking to upgrade to a new car with better fuel economy. Some though, may wonder if it’s really worth the savings. 

Now, at O.C. Welch Ford Lincoln’s website, drivers can calculate just exactly how much they can save from switching from their current car to a newer, more efficient car. The Calculate Fuel Savings feature is simple to use, all drivers have to do is choose a car that they may be interested in getting, then the fuel economy information for their current car. After that, the tool will calculate how much the driver could save by switching over a one, five and ten-year period. 

For instance, if a driver currently drives a car with an estimated 21 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, and annually drives about 12,000 miles a year and gas price per gallon is about $2.85, they could save over $700 in the first year by switching to the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE. Over five years, that goes up to over $3,500 and up to $7,000 in ten years. 

Those who are interested can visit the dealership’s website at www.goseeoc.com where they can browse their selection of new Ford and Lincoln vehicles, choose one that interests them and then compare it to their current car to see how much they can save at the gas pumps. 

Drivers can also check out the dealership’s online blog while on their website. It is updated regularly with helpful automotive information about the latest Ford and Lincoln vehicles as well as helpful tips and tricks and local news and happenings. 

Those with any questions about a Ford or Lincoln vehicle can contact the staff online through their website or by calling them directly at 843-288-0100. Drivers are also encouraged to stop by the dealership in person at 4920 Independence Boulevard, Highway 278 in Hardeeville.
