Fuel Saving Tips

Never Coast or Idle in Neutral in a Hybrid!

While some people may suggest coasting or idling in neutral to save some gas (although it is illegal in most states), you never ever want to do this while driving a hybrid. Why? While in neutral, the car's generator is not engaged, meaning it cannot charge the high-voltage battery. This also means no regenerative braking while in neutral!
