Fuel Saving Tips

Use synthetics everywhere

It is commonly known that synthetic motor oil yeailds gains in MPG and engine life, but drivetrain losses can account for 10% lost horsepower to your wheels. Help reduce this by using synthetic transmission fluid. Be sure to consult a mechanic if you are unsure if your car can use this (IE, Hondas generally need honda ATF, but can use non-honda MTF)
