Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down

2016-12-28 10:17:03

There’s not much drivers can do about the price of gas in ?New York, but we can control - up to a point - much we use. Our driving habits can dramatically affect our gas mileage.

The first thing we can do is watch the go-pedal. Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don’t need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year in improved gas mileage.

Go a little slower on the interstate highways.... drivers who go more than sixty-five miles an hour will see their gas mileage drop dramatically. Leave early so you don’t need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speeds use less gas.

Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands around the area.

Hey at current New York gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot.
