Gas Saving Driving Tips

Gas Saving Driving Tips - There have been numerous tips on how to save fuel ever since prices have skyrocketed some 33 percent. We have complied a list of the best driving techniques on saving a few more miles of gas in the tank. A lot of these techniques are used in hybrid cars to the maximum fuel economy.

One of the most important gas saving driving tips is to stop the reckless. This means no hitting the pedal to the floor after you’ve come to a complete stop. Reports show that hitting the accelerator lightly after stopping at a red light or stop sign can save you 31% fuel. Doing the math, thats like choosing whether you would like to spend $4.00 a gallon or $2.69 a gallon. This can be done by simply slowing up your acceleration speed.

Another tip to saving gas, which goes along with driving less recklessly, is to drive slower. Edmunds.com did some test to find out if this actually works. Their reports show that by driving slower you can save an average of 12% of your gas. The test consisted of driving 50 miles on cruise control once at 65 mph and the other at 75 mph.

While this is still a heavy subject of discussion when saving gas tests show that using cruise control does save gas. Edmunds reports that they got an average savings of 7%, which is about 25 cents per gallon. Although if you live in a mountainous region reports show that driving in cruise control is not a solution for you.
