Fuel Saving Tips

Managing approaching downhill

For CVT transmissions (no true neutral). Some downhill grades will cause your engine to brake the car, if you have to let off the gas completely, reducing your efficiency. If you are approaching such a hill and no traffic is behind you, slow down nearer the top and use minimal pedal (just before braking) to allow your car to retain momentum down the hill.
