Fuel Saving Tips

Stop for fuel? Fill the tank!

Filling the tank only part way to save 30 or 50 pounds on a 2,000 to 3,000 pound vehicle is missing the mark. If you've found a station, stopped to fuel, waited your turn, etc. - Fill it up! Driving as though your tank only holds 5 or 6 gallons means unnecessary fuel stops and therefore fuel wasting, not only by the extra stops but by planning your day around a partially empty tank! Condensation in a partial tank is an issue as well. Stopped to fuel? - Fill it up! The weight is negligible and you'll save fuel, hassle and worry by using all of your fuel tank.
