Fuel Saving Tips

Use Cruise Wisely

Cruise control is a great feature for maintaining speed and avoiding unnecessary acceleration. However, it's best to drive up to your intended cruise speed yourself -- avoid the "accel" button. Most cars will try to accelerate more rapidly than they need to, and we all know that wastes fuel. Don't mistake "cruise control" for "acceleration control!!"
