Fuel Saving Tips

trailer pulling

When pulling a trailer don't use cruise control in hilly or mountainous areas. Try to keep a steady speed on flats but let the speed drop 5 to 10 mph going up hills to keep transmission from down shifting. If transmission does down shift, then at the top of the hill let up on the gas pedal a bit to get it to up shift again.
