Fuel Saving Tips

Wave Cancel

When you stuck in stop and go traffic, slow way down to about 3 mile per hour, and then just keep moving really slowly. Let a empty gap form between you and the vehicle in front of you. You just move at a gentle slow speed without pressing the gas a brake peddle a whole bunch. People behind you will be indirectly encouraged to do similar, and you can cancel out a smog forming gas wasting standing traffic wave: and doing this is easier on your car: it will save you gas and extend the life of your brake system. If you drive a manual, this will also help you to keep from pumping you clutch thousands of times in a traffic jam.
