Fuel Saving Tips

Keep it locked up

If your driving an automatic on the highway and you get to a hill, when you hear/see the engine RPM's go up but dont feel anything, it's not your imagination. whats happening is the link to the transmission from the engine went from a hard link to a fluid link. if you drive to prevent this you will get a better MPG because only 90$ of your engines power is used when in fluid couple mode. do things like slowly accelerate towards the hills so it stays locked longer
