Fuel Saving Tips

Pay no attn to the man behind the curtain.

When driving, I tend to pay fairly little attention to what the person directly in front of me is doing. Instead I try to look through his windows and watch the person in front of him (even further when I'm in a truck). Also, when I see the car that's two cars ahead of me step on the brake, I usually simply lift off the gas and start slowing down before the person in front of me notices in some instances. In cases of minor speed changes this improves my gas mileage because I don't have to make up for excessive momentum losses caused by over-braking.
