Fuel Saving Tips

Cruise Control -vs- Lead Foot

I have found that if I use my cruise control I reduce my desire to place the accelerator on the pavement under me and it reduces my stress level. It overall saves fuel because the computer controls the RPM's/speed and not your fluctuating foot. Also use the incremental increase/decrease set speed when changing speed zones and approaching slower traffic, each tap reduces vehicle speed 1mph. If you have to slow down significantly disengage cruise and let drag slow you down then re-engage cruise control at the desired speed.
