New guy from Orlando, FL

Hi, I found this site while searching on the internet and I am glad that I did.

My car is a 2004 Toyota Solara SE (four cylinder with the automatic) and it currently is close to 27,000 miles on the odometer. I have a habit of keeping track of the car's fuel consumption and searching for tips on how to save gas.

Nice to meet you all.

Welcome. That's very low mileage for a four (almost five) year old car!

haha, it won't be so low after a while, I just transferred to UCF this last summer (30+ miles away from home). The better part is that more highway driving is involved in that trip.

Most of the miles on this car are city miles.

Well it is certainly true that driving fewer miles is pretty much the #1 way to use less gas! Too bad you have to start driving so much. Welcome to the board, and we hope we can help you save a few sheckles!

Ty all for the welcome.

I got no problems with the "driving more" part, going cruising on the highway is fun, much better than stop and go driving in the city.

This site has more tips and info about gas saving than any other places I have searched so far on the internet, no need to google anymore hahha.

Uhh,

If you are on Orlando, you will have to avoid the 7-9 am and 4-6:30 pm driving times on the toll roads and I-4 to not be in City mode

If you see a white Toyota Corolla going slow (ie the speed limit) on I-4, that would be me!

having a sun/e pass makes the toll roads a piece of cake. the beltway is FINALLY almost finished which will help even more!

i use ALL of the toll roads to avoid I-4 and city driving during my transport of food.
