Did you know that agressive driving lowers your MPG? Here are a few tips to conserve fuel.
- Drive Sensibly
- Observe the Speed Limit
- Limit Roof Cargo & Extra Weight
- Do not idle for extended periods of time
- Use Cruise Control
A poorly maintained car is not efficient.
- Keep up with regular maintenance

- Use recommended motor oil
- Replace air filters (on older vehicles not those with fuel injection.)
Carpooling Combining trips
Selecting which vehicle to purchase is the most important fuel economy decision you'll make. The difference between a car that gets 20 MPG and one that gets 30 MPG amounts to $652 per year (assuming 15,000 miles of driving annually and a fuel cost of $2.61). That's $3,262 extra in fuel costs over five years!
