Fuel Saving Tips

Keep an eye on crosswalk signs

When driving through any type of cityscape, there is more than likely going to be some signalized intersections. Many signalized intersections also support pedestrians. By checking on the crosswalk signals, you can sometimes anticipate light changes (green to red in most cases); If a crosswalk signal for the cross traffic only has a few seconds left on the stop crossing signal, then you know that the signal will change and should therefore prepare to stop sooner (let off the gas and apply more gradual braking). This will eliminate many sudden stops at light changes, which will improve your mpg and increase the lifetime of your braking system.
