Fuel Saving Tips

Rolling in Neutral

There are many newer (2000 and up) cars that are run by computer don't actually use fuel when rolling, even in manual cars. Let the car roll while in gear so the computer cuts off the fuel. It'll help you save money and your brakes, since the resistance from your engine and transmission help to slow down your car. Putting the car in neutral forces the engine to keep burning fuel to keep it running. Let off the gas early, let the car roll to slow itself and save your brakes a little bit and save some gas too. Happy driving!
