Fuel Saving Tips

Coast to Red

If the light is red the distance ahead, coast instead.............. Drivers (most of us) have the tendency to accelerate to a stop lights. Logically, it doesn't make sense.. but we do it habitually. Rather than waste extra gas to get to the stop light only to waste all of the Kinetic Energy in braking, just relax and coast. The stop light will come soon enough. If you make this a habit, you will discover that often you coast gently into the light turning green and you don't even have to brake! It may bug the person behind you a bit, but you also saved them some gas too :)
