Fuel Saving Tips

Anticipation saves - improvement

"... if you are going to have to stop that you take your foot off the accelerator and cruise up to the obstruction using your brakes as required." is an excellent tip. Improve on it, don't just cruise to the stop. If you are a good judge, hit the brakes early on, slow down, then cruise. You may not have to stop before the obstacle/stop light, and you will have more momentum as you start to speed up. Worst case you still come to a stop, no worse than cruising all the way and coming to a stop. Road rage caution: watch out for impatient drivers behind you, who will try to change lanes and zip in front of you. Stay calm, they will learn.
