Ten Fuel Saving Tips
1Avoid High SpeedsAs your speed increases, your aerodynamic drag increases in an exponential fashion. Driving 62 mph (100 km/h) vs 75 mph (120 km/h) will reduce fuel consumption by about 15%.
2Do Not Accelerate or Brake HardBy anticipating the traffic and applying slow steady acceleration and braking, fuel economy may increase by as much as 20%.
3Keep Tires Properly InflatedKeep tire air pressure at the level recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. A single tire under inflated by 2 PSI, increases fuel consumption by 1%.
4Use A/C SparinglyWhen the air conditioner is on it puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used (by about 20%). The defrost position on most vehicles also uses the air conditioner.
5Keep Windows ClosedWindows open, especially at highway speeds, increase drag and result in decreased fuel economy of up to 10%.
6Service Vehicle RegularlyProper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs or low fluid levels.
7Use Cruise ControlMaintaining a constant speed over long distances often saves gas.
8Avoid Heavy LoadsRemove the sand bags from your trunk in the spring and pack lightly for long trips.
9Avoid Long IdlesIf you anticipate being stopped for more than 1 minute, shut off the car. Restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle for this time.
