Avoid Slamming on the Brakes
Quick braking and, for that matter, quick acceleration, uses up far more fuel economy than smooth driving. Resist the urge to slam on the brakes — unless you have to, of course!
Don’t Use Your Car as a Storage Space
The lighter the load, the better the fuel economy — every 100 pounds removed roughly equals 1-2% fuel efficiency.
Ditch the Car!
Yep, you probably saw this one coming. If you can, try to replace your driving time with walking, biking, or taking public transportation as much as possible. It’s better for you, the environment, and your wallet!
