Fuel Saving Tips

Read the lights

“Read” the traffic at lights, look for (1) are there cars queued up at a red on my street and (2) are there cars queued up on the cross street at a red. Should I stay on the gas and have a good chance of making it green? Or should I get off the gas if the light will turn red before I get there. There are about 4 scenarios that you have to think about (red/stale, red/fresh, green/stale, green/fresh). The goal is to use the brakes as little as possible.
