Fuel Saving Tips

The Coasting Game

I know not every one likes to drive the back roads because the MPH are slower.But if you live around alot of back roads with hills it can gain you better fuel milage. You Ask How; simple. Plan your trip using the roads with the hills going to and use flat roads coming back (Note this work better if you have an manul transmission). When you get to the road with the hill take the car and put it in Neutral and coast as far as the car will go. Now keep in mind the speed limit and the cars behind you. ( Note if the the speed limit is 35MPH I will coast 5MPH under the limit as far as the car will go then Put it in the gear that will not spike the RPMs up).
