Driving Tips: We Test the Tips: What Really Saves Gas? And How Much?


Subject:
Automobiles , Fuel Consumption

Description:
This article describes how changing your driving habits may result in substantial fuel economy improvements. Driving tips were tested "over a remote 55-mile route in the high desert of California." Tests with significant fuel savings included moderate instead of aggressive driving, lowering high speeds, using cruise control, and limiting excessive idling. Proper tire pressure and not using air conditioning did not result in significant fuel savings. From a company that produces car-pricing guides.
