Fuel Saving Tips

Old Cars W/ manual overdrive, beware!

I've noticed, particularly in cold weather, shifting my '96 Oldsmobile Ciera into overdrive (4th) causes the engine to cool down to the point where it is not at operating temperature. This plays havoc with my consumption, so I only allow it to shift up to 3rd, which helps immensely.
