Fuel Saving Tips

Do Your Research, Use Your Head!!

Some of these tips are harmful to the vehicle if you intend to keep it long-term. Ask a mechanic what the inside of an engine started and driven cold under full load to 'save fuel' looks like. I will burn $0.50 worth of gas to make sure the engine is at temperature before tearing down the road in 4" of snow with 4x4 enagaged. Also getting killed because your windows are iced over isn't worth $1.00 in gas. It may be cool to be a 'hyper-miler' person on this board, but if you have to replace your car sooner the fuel you saved is irrelevant.
