Fuel Saving Tips

Don't keep it up

I'll happily lose a couple of mph when I hit an uphill - why burn extra fuel to hold a solid 30? For those without cruise control, this is the reason many people have suggested turning it off. The same goes for downhills - unless it's going to cause a problem you might as well use the free energy to roll yourself down the hill while in the highest gear you can get away with or is safe to use (so you don't roll too fast!).
