Fuel Saving Tips

..avoid highway "inch-worm" effect..

..ever run into a highway slowdown which has no apparent cause?..the cause is actually that most drivers follow too closely, and when one brakes, the following drivers tend to over-brake which only further slows traffic.. ..better to learn to gauge distance by eye, leaving plenty of space between you & the vehicle in front of you (as has been mentioned in here), so that you can simply let off the gas to keep a safe distance.. ..this works even in fairly heavy stop-and-go type traffic..yes, folks will cut in front of you, but watch them!..they end up hitting their brakes 90% of the time & seldom end up going much further/faster than you will..
