Fuel Saving Tips
In the UK, learner drivers are now advised to skip gears to get up to top speed quicker and more efficiently. On slight downward hills, it's easy to pull away in 2nd, when you reach 30 MPH, select 4th or take the revs a little higher and select 5th. From 0-60 you only need to change gear twice so the engine doesnt go through the full rev range in every gear. Similar patterns can be applied when dowshifting too.
