Fuel Saving Tips

some backing up is required for your brakes

if you have drum type brakes in the back, you need to back up sometimes. The rear drum brake shoes need adjustment to tighten them to the drum as they wear. This is automatically done by braking in reverse. If you 'never' back up due to these tips on Fuelly, your back brakes will get looser and looser because they never adjust tighter. This only applies to drum brakes, if you have all disc brakes this does not apply.
