Tips for increasing fuel economy

When gas is as expensive as it is, it’s important to get the most from each gallon!

-Don’t idle to warm your car – even if the cold. There’s no need to start your car early before you drive. The engine (and heater!) will warm more quickly if it’s being driven within 30 seconds of starting.

-Avoid sudden starts and stops. If it’s throwing your passengers head forward and back, you’re accelerating and braking way too hard! This can decrease your fuel economy by 10-40%!! Try to gradually increase and decrease speed as gradually as is safe.

-If your car has a manual transmission, upshift as soon as practical. Use the brakes rather than downshifting to slow the car.

-Pay attention to the traffic ahead of you, and follow at a distance when possible to prevent unnecessary braking.

-Fuel economy peaks at 50mph, and decreases at higher speeds.

-Use cruise control to keep even speed (but only when it’s not raining or wet/slippery, which can be dangerous!)

-Download a hands-free traffic app like Waze or Google Maps to plan the most efficient route. This can help you avoid traffic delays and excessive idling.

-Avoid rush hour traffic when possible
