Fuel Saving Tips

Ease off the brakes

The moment you see a stop sign or red light (or a turn you have to make, etc.) take your foot off the gas (and put it in neutral if you've got a manual). Let your car roll to the stop. People behind you may get a little annoyed and speed by you just to come to a stop but don't worry about them, because if you time it right, you won't have to stop at all, the light will be green (thanks to the person who sped in front of you and is waiting at the light) and you can keep driving. Use this in moderation obviously, since there are some crazy drivers out there, and I'd rather you be safe, than save a few bucks at the pump :)
