... and follow the tips!
  1. Tip 1

    Drive Smoothly.

    Rapid acceleration and braking can lower your gas mileage by up to 33% at highway speeds and by 5% around town. Ease up on the gas and brake gently.

  2. Tip 2

    Take it easy.

    Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. When driving on freeways, reducing your speed from 75 mph to 65 mph can improve your gas mileage by 15%.

  3. Tip 3

    Tune it up.

    Keeping your car in good working condition can improve your gas mileage. Good maintenance includes keeping tires inflated, regular oil changes and filter replacement.

  4. Tip 4

    Lighten your load.

    Remove unneeded gear and equipment from the trunk and back seat. When your engine doesn’t have to carry so much weight, you won’t need to fill up as often at the pump!

  5. Tip 5

    Get your plug-in tool.
