Fuel Saving Tips

Coast or Decelerate Cruise Control

When using your cruise control and approaching a red light, stopped or slowing traffic, a freeway interchange, an intersection or anywhere when you need to slow down use the "Coast" or "Decelerate" function or button on your cruise control to let the vehicle coast down rather than using your brakes to disengage the cruise function. After you pass the slow down then accelerate back to your desired speed with the throttle pedal, NOT the resume button and click the speed set button at your stabilized speed.
