Driving Tips to Save on Gas

How can you save on gas? In addition to driving a vehicle with excellent fuel economy ratings, there are other things you can do. Here are some tips to save on gas:

  1. Adopt good driving habits. When you speed or rapidly accelerate and brake, your gas mileage can be reduced significantly.
  2. Don’t idle excessively. Idling eats up a lot of fuel in a short period of time. Instead, put your vehicle in park and turn it off.
  3. Observe the speed limit. When you go over 50 MPH, gas mileage decreases.
  4. Use cruise control. When you use cruise control, you can maintain your speed better, thus saving on gas.
  5. Don’t keep unnecessary heavy items in your vehicle. Hauling an additional 100 pounds in the trunk can reduce your fuel efficiency.
  6. Carrying cargo on your roof can reduce your gas mileage. Avoid carrying cargo on the roof unless necessary.
