Fuel Saving Tips
Sounds like common sense but every MPH extra above speed limit causes the engine to work harder. The time saved by going faster is not worth the price paid in losing MPG. I used to go 5mph above the limit but just by reducing 5mph I noticed a jump in MPG. There are others who take it to a more extreme level suggesting 55mph top speed on the highway - check out the science & math behind this idea at www.drive55.org.
