How to save money on gas

By amber.

We're over the mid-week hump again! That means two more days of driving in rush hour traffic, for most of us, to get to work.

Here are some tips to help you drive more efficiently to save gas:

1. Drive sensibly, not aggressively. Speeding, braking and rapid acceleration wastes gas and can lower your fuel economy by 33% at highway speeds and 5% in the city.

2. Observe the speed limit. Gas mileage usually decreases above speeds of 50 mph. Observing the speed limit is also safer.

3. Remove excess weight. Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your vehicle. This usually affects smaller vehicles more than larger ones, at a rate of 1%-2%/100 lbs reduction of your MPG.

4. Avoid excessive idling. Idling can use up 1/4 to 1/2 a gallon of gas per hour depending on the size of your engine and whether you have an a/c.

5. Using cruise control on the highway helps you maintain your speed, and saves you money on gas.

Drive smart, and have a nice car!
