Fuel Saving Tips
Instead of pulling into a supermarket parking spot and stopping at the line, or reversing into one, find an empty area and pull through the first spot and into the second. This way you'll be facing the aisle as if you had reversed, except you never have to reverse. Because you don't have to back into or out of the parking spot, you'll have saved all the fuel that otherwise would have been consumed during those careful 30-or-so seconds. Plus, it's just easier and more efficient. You might only save 30 seconds of fuel, but think about how many times you visit these parking lots - especially on days you're out shopping. The time and fuel savings are quite satisfying.
