Fuel Saving Tips

Watch the station's gallons

Some stations deliver more MPG than others. Watch for patterns. Sometimes it's the fuel, but other times the station owner has set the station's pumps to read high. (The station where I worked did this.) I notice one Chevron regularly says I've used 10-15% more fuel than another Chevron 12 miles away. Ironically, they also charged 16 cents more per gallon. I noted this discrepancy on several earlier tanks, but it was when I started using Fuelly that it came to mind. (SG said I got > 35, "actual" mileage was 30.5.)
