Fuel Saving Tips

Beat he hill, pump first

On driving up any hill, especially rolling hills that have a 30 to 60' elevation rise, pump the accelerator 'before' reaching the base of the hill. This slight speed increase of a few mph increases the momentum of your vehicle during the initial climb of the hill. You'll use less gas overall, regardless of the hill's rise or run. Unfortunately, speed controls are dumb to this tip and pump 'more' gas when the vehicle is rising on the actual hill slope. You'll be surprised at the savings when you look at your instantaneous fuel gauge...
