Fuel Saving Tips
Do you drive on a small (2-3) lane highway with a relatively efficient but underpowered car? You may be using the same amount of gas on that daily drive trying to pass traffic as a car that is more powerful. If you can't resist some enthusiastic driving, a more powerful car is maybe what you need. When you accelerate and mash the gas in your underpowered car, trying to pass traffic, you're being fuel inefficient. Try switching to a more powerful car (something around 300hp). You'll find that with more power, gradual acceleration will still provide enough power to pass other drivers, while returning back on fuel economy.
