Fuel Saving Tips

Learn a Repeat Route

If you take the same route repeatedly, learn where you can save some fuel. It costs you to accelerate. It costs you to drive steady state rather than coast. For example, if you get onto a highway and get off one stop later, you burn more fuel accelerating to 60 MPH rather than accelerating up to only 50 mph or 45 and cruising that short distance. Let off the throttle sooner, coasting, and bleed off speed as you climb an off ramp rather than cruising longer and then using your brakes. Each of these makes a small difference, but those small differences can add up over an entire trip.
