Fuel Saving Tips

  Purchase a Fuel Efficient Vehicle:


Purchase a fuel efficient vehicle, either new or used, such as; a Nissan Sentra, Toyota Camry or Corolla, Honda Civic.

  Avoid Long Idles:


If you anticipate being stopped for more than 1 min. shut off the car. Restarting the
Car uses less fuel than letting it idle for this time.

  Avoid Heavy Loads:


Remove sand bags from your trunk in the spring and pack lightly for long trips.

  Use Cruise Control:


Maintaining a constant speed over long distances often saves gas.

  Service Vehicle Regularly:


Proper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs or low
fluid levels.

  Keep Windows Closed:


Open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase drag & result in decreased fuel economy
Of up to 10%.

  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%.

  Do Not Accelerate or Brake Hard:


By anticipating the traffic and applying slow steady acceleration & braking, fuel
economy my increase by as much as 20%.

  Avoid High Speeds:


As your speed increases your aerodynamic drag increase in an exponential fashion.
driving 62 m.p.h vs. 75 m.p.h. will reduce fuel consumption by about 15%
