Fuel Saving Tips

Traffic Apps Save Gas!

Before I leave home to make my 24 mile commute to work, and on the return trip home, I look at the Google Maps App (there are many others) that shows me the areas of slower or stopped traffic. Then I can reroute my commute. Sometimes it takes me 5 miles out of my way or it takes me down a few surface streets (at 40mph) but that has less impact on my fuel than stop-n-go traffic or sitting idle. Just like the tortoise and the hare - better to keep making consistent, slow and steady progress. It saves time and money.
