I was recommended this site from another website called and since I notice that a lot of people are doing their darnest to find ways to save gas, I thought I'd join to see what people are doing, so greetings from Missouri.

I own a 2008 Toyota Tundra and plan on doing some mods on it to save gas, however before I decide to do any changes, I have been practicing my muscle memory on using better driving habits , such as not stepping on it, and taking advantage of hills and the terrain around me to get the maximize mileage I can and it has already started to pay off and I noticed it more when I let me wife drive my truck, because when she drives to the same city my truck comes back with a 1/4 tank and I return with half a tank full, driving the same mileage., so I think the place for me to start is driving habits.

Welcome aboard - there is all kinds of information starting with simple stuff (driving habits) to some pretty extreme aerodynamic and engine modifications.

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Think you are saving gas? Prove it by starting a Gas Log, then conduct a proper experiment.

+1 on the driving habits, lowglow. I've managed some amazing mileage feats with my unmodified cars. I had a 75 mpg leg for 40 miles from Truckee CA to Reno NV, a 59 mpg run for 165 miles from Gallup NM to Tuba City AZ, and a 51.5 mpg run for 1213 miles from Gallup to the Bay Area. All done in my unmodified Scion xB by changing my driving habits.
