Fuel Saving Tips

Use a higher gear

If you have a standard shift like I do (that's the real way to drive!), stick it in a higher gear whenever possible. Shifting to a higher gear lowers your RPMs so your car doesn't have to work as hard to keep the same speed. Don't stay in third if you're going 35... put it in fourth already. Or accelerate a bit more and you'll be cruising in fifth. Excellent.
