15 Ways to Improve Fuel Economy

With gas prices expected to rise this summer, here's 15 tested tips to get your money's worth.

 

Driving Habits

Cruise control: In this road test by Edmunds, use of cruise control on flat terrain resulted in up to 14% fuel savings. Cruise control in mountainous terrain, however, lowered fuel economy.

Watch your speed: According to the US Department of Energy, gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 50 mph. For every 5 mph over 50, you'll see a 7% decrease in fuel efficiency. 

Cool it: Aggressive driving habits such as rapid acceleration and braking wastes gas. According to Bosch, lead footers can use up to 25% more fuel. A study by the DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory found that aggressive behavior can lower gas mileage by 10-40%.

Stop the idling: In a study by Argonne National Laboratory, passenger cars consume .16-.39 gallons of gas per hour of idling. It's believed that 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than restarting your engine.

 

Stay tuned for tips 5-8 to see how vehicle maintenance affects fuel economy.
