Fuel Saving Tips

Coasting and Accelerating are the most efficient states of a vehicle

if you have a small engined car which does not require allot of fuel to idle you can use coast and glide techniques, accelerating doesn't use much more fuel then maintaining a steady speed and your engine is much more efficient at producing more power to accelerate then it is to producing less power to maintain speed, you can use this to your advantage to accelerate and coast between two different speeds (E.g. 40-50mph) which can improve fuel economy on the flat by upto 50%. (It improved my cars economy from 50mpg to 73mpg Imperial)
