Fuel Saving Tips

Put Auto Transmissions in Neutral

I've found that when sitting at long stoplights putting the car in neutral saves fuel over the course of a tank of fuel used. On many cars you can feel the load on the engine when in Drive but not moving. Sitting in neutral tales a lot of the load off the motor. Obviously this works best when you know the individual light you're sitting at so you can time putting it back on D without holding up those behind you or shock-loading the drive line.
