1. Go the speed limit. Use cruise
Speed limits are calculated for maximum safety ? they'll also reward you with maximum gas mileage. You can get up to 20 percent more mileage traveling 55 mph than 70 mph. Using cruise control provides additional gas savings.
2. Drive evenly. Avoid hard
Quick starts burn gas while hard stops also cost you. Take your foot off the accelerator and coast a bit before stopping for a traffic light or a stop sign.
3. Avoid idling and rush hour
You're burning fuel while idling ? up to a gallon every hour. So, avoid rush hour traffic when possible.
4. Open windows at slow speeds. Use
A/C on highways.
Around town, turn your air conditioning off and roll down the windows. On the highway, open windows create drag at speeds of 40 mph or more, so roll them up and use the air.
5. Remove junk from the
Added weight in your vehicle affects fuel economy, so take unnecessary items out of your trunk.
6. Fill up when it's cool and before
Cooler temperatures in the early morning or late evening create less vapor. Also, getting a fill-up three days before a holiday will help you save on the per-gallon price at the pump.
7. Don't top off gas and tighten the
When buying gas, stop when the pump shuts off automatically. And remember, your tank needs both fuel and fumes, so tighten the gas cap after every fill-up.
8. Use the correct fuel
Use the fuel grade recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. In addition, TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is even better for your vehicle. It is a class of gasoline with enhanced detergency, that exceed detergent requirements imposed by the EPA. It meets voluntary deposit control standards developed by four automotive companies, including General Motors.
9. Don't accelerate up
Build up speed before an incline, and then maintain it on the way up. Coast on the way down for additional fuel economy.
10. Avoid rooftop
Approximately one quarter of each gallon of gas is needed to overcome wind resistance, so avoid carrying things on your roof. If necessary, use an aerodynamic carrier to help minimize drag.
