Fuel Saving Tips

Slow down by a few mph on long trips

Try this next time your take a long hwy trip; drive 1-2 mph less than surrounding traffic, and observe that most traffic will pass you by. But because of slower moving vehicles, RV's, semi's, or a nitwit driver who is oblivious to driving with the flow, you'll likely find you'll catch up to all the traffic that passed you by because they had to slow down for the low-speed offender. You'll maintain a steadier speed, gain a few mpg's due to less movement of your right foot (if you're not using CC, which I recommend), have a less stressful drive, and not lose any time to your destination!
