Fuel Savings Tip: Slow down!

Fuel Savings Tip: Slow down!

There is not too much we can do about the price of gas in IA, but we can do something about how much we use. Our driving habits have a direct impact on our fuel efficiency.

The first thing we can do is watch the gas pedal. Hard acceleration uses a lot of gas. Gently leave stop signs or lights and plan lane changes so you don’t need to step on the gas. This alone can save you hundreds of dollars a year in improved fuel economy.

Go a little slower on the highway. Your vehicles fuel consumption will increase dramatically when you go over 65 miles per hour. Leave early so there is no need to speed to get where you’re going on time. Steady speeds use less fuel, so consider cruise control your friend.

If you plan your errands ahead of time and make fewer trips by combining stops around town, you will get better gas mileage.

With the gas prices these days, a heavy foot will get expensive. By following these simple tips, you will not only save at the pump, but you will extend the life of your vehicle too. It’s a win-win.
