I've done it all, don't notice a difference. But will re-think it.

I agree with your skepticism, Sophine. Let all of us know should your experience detect an effective suggestion.
To me, many of them [emptying my trunk!] seem factual and helpful. I do wonder about 9)
"Check oil level...It’s also extremely detrimental to keep your cars oil level within the “safe” range during regular oil changes. If your vehicle does not have enough, l can literally exhaust your engine, causing early wear and tear and a reduction of gas mileage."
I think that I understand the danger of causing early wear-and-tear, BUT what is meant by the apparent warning against keeping 'your cars [sic: no possessive] oil level within the safe range DURING regular
oil changes'?

This was not edited well.
It is critical that you keep your oil level correct, total engine destruction is possible with out enough oil.
These are all good ideas except, drive through fast food is fine, just turn off your engine if waiting a long time, you will not be taking your savings to the bank in a wheel barrow!

Mostly stuff I knew, though the idea of buying gas before dawn is a new one, and in my case, totally impractical. The nearest gas station with a decent price is 40 minutes away. As such I time my trips so I multi-task/carpool to the market and gas up then. I only use the local tourist-trap stations in emergency - a couple gallons to get me to the station with a decent price - sometimes 20 cents cheaper ;-P

Thank you for the info! None of this is news to me except the "oil suggestion" and "filling up early morning. I know what I've been told for decades, but everyday brings new truths to dispell what we thought was FACT. I am very lucky to live in a groovy little town and if I don't walk to the places I need, ALL of my friends have worked out a schedule to carpool...whether it be marketing at the local/community health store or driving 15 miles away to the "big city" LOL We also have an incredible transportation system. Although it's terribly expensive right now...DOUBLED this year to 50cents!!!!!Wink Oh, and you can drive all day long for that! I wasn't aware of the "purchasing gas prior to dawn" either. I will absolutely rearrange my schedule to comply with that, as well as sharing. I believe it is our responsibility to DO EVERYTHING WE CAN...NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In closing, I purchased my car "brand new 5 years ago" with 559 miles. I now have 16,238.
