Three Fuel Consumption Reduction Tips

Biking, walking, carpooling and taking mass transit are all optimal alternatives to driving. However, sometimes we do not have a choice and must rely on our vehicles. Here are some tips for reducing fuel consumption. Not only are these practices good for the environment but they are good for the pocketbook, as well.

1. Do not allow your car to idle. Even though running into the convenience store only takes a minute or two, there is no reason to allow the engine to idle.

2. Drive slower. The turbulence at high speeds causes more gas usage.

3. Map out your route. Not only for shortest distances, but consider combining trips when out and about. Plan out your week in advance to avoid multiple trips to the same areas.
