Top Driving Habits That Save Gas

Here are a few driving habits that can help you save gas and keep your car in top condition.

Observe the speed limit - While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at different range of speeds, gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds over 60 mph. By observing the speed limit you can help save gas.

Avoid driving aggressively - Aggressive driving such as speeding, rapid acceleration and braking wastes gas and can lower your gas mileage by up to 33% at highway speeds and by 5% around town

Combine short trips - Combining short errands into one trip is an efficient way to save gas as well as time. Warm engines run more efficiently than cold ones.

Avoid excessive idling - Idling uses up a lot of fuel (much more than restarting your engine).

Don’t break excessively
– Excessive braking wastes gas and can result in your brake pads to wearing out quickly. Keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead so you don’t need to brake that often.
Not slamming on your brakes at the last-minute helps improve the efficiency of your car and save you gas.

Time your gas purchase - Gas is denser and cooler earlier in the day. As temperatures rise, gas density falls, and you’ll get less when you pump. So, try to fill up gas either early or late in the day, especially during summer months.

Also, don’t wait until your tank is almost empty so that you have more options to compare pricing and you’re not stuck paying for whatever gas station is nearby.
