Fuel Saving Tips

Cool car interior quicker

If you use the A/C a lot, like I do, here are a few tips. Before you start the car, roll the windows down. In the summer, the car cools down much quicker if you let the hot air in the car naturally blow out the windows. I leave the windows down for about thirty seconds while backing out. Your A/C compressor won't work as hard to cool the interior, saving you gas. I also turn off the A/C fan when parking. That way the engine doesn't have to work harder to start compared to starting with the A/C on.
