Fuel Saving Tips

Law of Conservation of Energy

The Law of Conservation of Energy: Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Remember this as you drive. When on the highway, use the brakes as little as possible since brakes essentially translate gas into heat (via brakes) as opposed to momentum (coasting). Same applies for acceleration: Use only the necessary amount of energy for acceleration as the quicker you accelerate, the more energy (gas) is wasted trying to propel the vehicle quickly. As you drive, constantly figure ways to make the most use of the potential energy stored in your fuel tank!
