Fuel Saving Tips

Average speed

You might think your average speed on a trip is your highway cruising speed, but your true average speed will be much lower. It takes slow-downs, traffic lights, and pit-stops into account. To increase your average speed, simply stop less often (when possible). This is much more fuel-efficient than the same average speed with short jaunts at 75 mph and multiple slow-downs. I am often passed by people two or three times when they stop for food, other traffic, gas, etc.
