FUEL SAVING TIPS

  1. Avoid High Speeds- As your speed increases, your aerodynamic drag increases in an exponential fashion. Driving 62 mph (100 km/h) vs 75 mph (120 km/h) will reduce fuel consumption by about 15%.
  2. Do Not Accelerate or Brake Hard- By anticipating the traffic and applying slow steady acceleration and braking, fuel economy may increase by as much as 20%.
  3. Keep Tires Properly Inflated- Keep tire air pressure at the level recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. A single tire under inflated by 2 PSI, increases fuel consumption by 1%.
  4. Use A/C Sparingly- When the air conditioner is on it puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used (by about 20%). The defrost position on most vehicles also uses the air conditioner.
  5. Keep Windows Closed- Windows open, especially at highway speeds, increase drag and result in decreased fuel economy of up to 10%.
  6. Service Vehicle Regularly- Proper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs or low fluid levels.
  7. Use Cruise Control- Maintaining a constant speed over long distances often saves gas.
  8. Avoid Heavy Loads- Remove the sand bags from your trunk in the spring and pack lightly for long trips.
  9. Avoid Long Idles- If you anticipate being stopped for more than 1 minute, shut off the car. Restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle for this time.
