Fuel Saving Tips

Why charge a red light?

Look ahead, if you see a light is red just coast. You're not getting through the intersection until the light turns green anyway so why rush? You save the gas you didn't use to speed the car up to charge the red light, AND improve the chance that the light will turn green while you're still rolling. If you're still rolling when traffic moves you've saved the gas you would have used to get to that speed too! Also, less accelerating and braking will make for a more comfortable ride for your passengers.
