Fuel Saving Tips

Watch for trailing brakes

It is possible for brakes to fail to release fully if the mechanism gets gunged up. This might not be immediately noticeable, and can be intermittent, but sufficient to knock your MPGs off. Things to watch out for: One wheel showing getting dirtier than others showing increased brake dust. One wheel being hotter than the others following a long trip Squeaking/squealing when moving which stops when you apply the brakes.
