Fuel Saving Tips

Spend as little time uphill as possible

Steeper uphill coming up, it may be in your best interest to just scramble up it as fast as you legally can - because in addition to the usual rolling resistance and air resistance, going uphill means you are also encountering a constant gravity resistance - which drags you down at the same rate for a given grade regardless of what speed you're at. Of course, take care not to overstress the engine, and if you're going a very high speed the increased aerodynamic drag might exceed any fuel savings on avoiding gravitational drag.
