Improve Your Gas Mileage by Driving Sensibly

Regardless of your vehicle's average gas mileage rating, there's usually room for improvement to be found by changing driving habits that use more fuel than is needed to get from one place to another. One way to start saving at the gas pump is to drive more sensibly.

Driving sensibly eliminates unnecessary acceleration and braking. Studies have shown that aggressive driving can lower your fuel economy by as much as 15-30%. Aggressive driving includes wasteful habits like speeding, rapid acceleration, and hard braking. Driving slower on the freeway can also save fuel by reducing the atmospheric drag that increases significantly at speeds over 50 mph.
