Fuel Saving Tips

Do not hold on to high gears up inclines/merging roads

It might seem logical to keep it in a higher gear when you accelerate or go up a hill if you want to save fuel, but it lugs your engine and results in you using 100% throttle for a lot longer. In many occasions, it's slightly more efficient to use a short burst of high RPM, full throttle driving, so you can achieve a cruise a lot earlier.
