Fuel Saving Tips
If you have to brake to avoid rear ending the car in front you're too close. Back off and use the 2 second rule. Increasing the gap between you and the car in front should avoid the unnecessary braking and often allows you slow enough just by letting off the accelerator a little or completely. This works particularly well on windy or country roads, which aren't the best for efficiency anyway, but this should help and also creates a more relaxed drive.
