Fuel Saving Tips

Red light at bottom of hill? Pull over at the top.

In my area, there are a couple of signal lights planted at the bottom of two hills and the road then flattens out. Don't roll up and stop dead at the red light. While still on the down grade, when you spot a distant red light, I suggest pull off to the side of the road or, if that's not possible, ultra slow down. When the light changes, you can use gravity to continue to roll through the new green light or pop the clutch to restart the engine.
