Fuel Saving Tips

Stick to arterial roads; avoid alleys and side streets

Main arterial roads are specifically designed for the heavy traffic flow and the signal lights are often timed to give priority to traffic on the arterial road. If you are lucky, you may get multiple green lights in a row. Alleys and side streets may result in increased fuel consumption due to the more frequent accelerating and braking involved for stop signs, yielding to pedestrians, gear-hunting, etc. Of course, if the traffic level is high enough on the arterial, it may be prudent to take alternate routes.
