Don't turn on your A/C but use your outside air. You also save gas if you stay in the low miles per hour when driving. When you take off do not do the jack rabbit start but go off slow and easy. How really to save gas is to car pool, take a bus or other public service or ride a bike. All the above will help you improve your gas mileage in your car.- Richard, State of Florida. (05/31/2001)
With soaring gas prices, this is a great resource. Just type in your zip code and find the gas stations with the cheapest prices. - Carolyn (05/31/2001)
Keep your car tuned up for best performance, organize your trips to accomplish other things along the way and know where the cheaper gas stations are usually off the main roads. (05/31/2001)
Gas prices continue to be high, so here are a few more tips on getting better mileage.
Make sure your tires are not under-inflated. Some people like to slightly under-inflate; they feel that it makes the tread last longer. But under-inflated tires make more contact with the road, producing more friction, which takes a bit away from mileage.
Keep your car cleaned out. If you haul around stuff you don't need, it makes your car heavier. It has been pointed out that jack-rabbit starts rob you of good mileage. The same is true of abrupt stops. I start slowing a good bit before I need to turn, and the moment I see a red or yellow traffic light ahead. I start by easing off the gas pedal, and I then just tap the brake pedal. I ease gradually to a stop or to a speed low enough for my turn.
Don't speed. 55 saves lives, as the public service announcement said, and it also saves gas. - Rose B, mother of three, in NC(08/27/2001)
