Fuel Saving Tips

Take the backroads.

Freeways have their purpose, but everyone is on them all the time... and often there are tolls. On your next long trip, try working out a path that uses highways with speed limits of 55 MPH (90 kmh) or lower. The trip is more scenic and interesting, and quite often you will only add a half an hour to an 8 hour trip. You'll save fuel, you'll spend a LOT less time sitting in traffic, save yourself the tolls and the stress. Often these routes are less mileage and easier on the car because you're revving lower. Say you drive an Integrea or RSX. wouldn't it be nice to be revving below 3 grand for a change and getting GREAT fuel economy, and look at all those trees!
