you can save even more (like maybe 0.01%) of fuel by not tuning on radio and GPS

or save 100% by NOT DRIVING

Some of these were popular when I was driving a truck or van. Now I drive a bicycle and so far the climate hasn't blocked my pedalling for more than a day or two at the time, generally because it's raining or snowing. Once the plows have gone through, I'm right back on the bike. I can't stand the fuel price scam, insurance ripoff, or the overpriced new cars.

I wish state pollution control agencies would come alive and put out info about idling, combining trips, etc to save fuel and reduce air pollution. I went early this a.m. to check on a neighbor's house, while at a house between us, a car was idling for far too long; temp about 25 degrees.

good ideas... few things bother me more than people who leave their cars idling any time of year when waiting.....also remember that in all conditions safe driving is most important, but maintaining a steady speed is much better than going fast then slow then fast then slow...keep a safe distance break less and you will lose less energy to friction.....

Sound advice, which I have been following due to the Greek crisis even in not so cold weather. (Actually it is common sense)
