Gas-saving tips courtesy of AAA
• Avoid buying gas when there’s a delivery truck at the station.
• Annual tuneups and inspections are vital.
• Avoid overfilling your gas tank
• After filling up, make sure the gas cap clicks three times
• Properly inflate your tires
• Find good prices at the pump
• Keep windows closed when traveling at highway speeds
• Only accelerate before you reach the hill, not while you’re on it
• Slow down! Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly over 60 mph
• Try to drive at a constant speed and avoid tailgating
• Use cruise control when possible
• Avoid warming up your engine at idle
• Don’t keep your left foot on the manual transmission clutch pedal while driving
• Avoid driving along rough roads whenever possible
• Use alternate roads when they prove to be safer, shorter and straighter
• Travel at the legal speed limit to increase your chances of getting more green lights
• Before a road trip, fill up at your local station instead of one near the highway
• Park your car so that you can easily travel in forward gear when you return to it
• Remove snow tires during good weather
• Operating the air conditioner on the maximum level can reduce your mpg by 5% to 25%
• Remove excess weight from the trunk or inside of the car
• Remove unneeded third-row seating in SUVs and vans
• Carpools reduce travel monotony and gas expenses
• Combining errands into one trip
• Wax your car and keep it clean. This will reduce aerodynamic drag
• Walk between stops
• Track your mileage in real time
• Avoid being stuck in traffic
• Try to purchase vehicles that get good gas mileage
• Don’t use premium fuel if it’s not necessary
• Park your car in your garage
