Fuel Saving Tips

Free chilled toes

Many of us drive with the windows down while it's hot out in order to gain a few mpgs. However, I like to keep the cabin fan blowing low on my feet. Every time I slow for a stop sign or red light, I flip on the A/C until about 10 mph when I let the engine auto-stop. Free chilled air on my legs. In between stops, the air coming out of the vents is still well below ambient. Very pleasant. If you don't have auto-stop, make sure to turn A/C back off if you come to a complete halt and the engine idles. Makes a toasty day more bearable if you like the wind in your hair.
