Fuel Saving Tips

Get in top gear for best fuel efficiency

Your vehicle runs most efficiently when in its top gear. The slower your speed in top gear, the lower the engine speed (RPMs), reducing the amount of fuel consumed. Accelerate gently, smoothly, and maintain top gear at speed as much as possible. Try to eliminate or reduce the amount of downshifting from the transmission if an automatic. Not only does this save you fuel, but also puts less wear and tear on your engine and transmission.
