Fuel Saving Tips

Don't top off at the pump

When you fill up, wait for the pump to click and then stop. I used to top off without realizing that almost 100% of that fuel is wasted either directly back through the pump to avoid spillage, or in your car itself because it is "over full" I saw a 3mpg improvement when I stopped topping off, all because I was paying for gas that never made it into my engine!
