Better Gas Mileage Tips

1. Go the speed limit. Use cruise control.

While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. You can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 50 mph is like paying an additional $0.25 per gallon for gas. Observing the speed limit is also safer. Additionally, using cruise control on the highway helps you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, will save gas.

2. Drive Sensibly.
