Fuel Saving Tips
You are driving up to an intersection that you know takes some time from one green to the next for you. When you stop, turn off your engine while you pay attention to the traffic in the intersection. When you anticipate that your lane will soon be moving, then start the engine again and remember to move the shift lever back to Drive. On a long light you can save upwards of a minute of idling time this way. Hybrids do this all the time.A manual transmission is easier to do this with.
