Gas 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.
