Fuel Saving Tips

Vary acceleration by traffic level

Most engines produce maximum efficiency somewhere around 75% power, so when the coast is clear, feel free to get to cruise speed with your pedal most of the way down. However when there is traffic or other potential obstructions ahead, its better to accelerate slowly as even though the engine will be operating less efficiently, braking losses are minimized if there is a slow down.
