Fuel Saving Tips

Keep Your Options Open

Fuelly has an excellent stat that makes this site very powerful in that it gives you avg price/gallon right on your vehicle page. I know that I'm very bad at playing the "buy low" game at the gas station--it always seems that when I need gas, that's when the prices are the highest for the week--and I'm forced to pay what they have because they got it, and I need it. So what I plan to do is do a quick check on Fuelly before I head out to see what my avg price/gallon is, and if I happen to be going by a gas station that has a lower price, I stop in and fill up. The goal here is to keep that average price/gallon low, and when you still have gas in your car, you still have options. Not necessarily a tip to lower your gas milage, but maybe this might help your pocket book over the long run. A good suggestion also if you have a smart phone is the "gas buddy" app to give you gas station prices in your area--so you don't have to make a special trip.
