Tips for fuel efficiency
On the freeway, drive in the “sweet spot” of 40 to 60 MPH. Fuel efficiency drops between 5% and 9% for every 5 MPH you drive over 60. Not to mention the cost of a ticket if you are caught exceeding the posted limit.
On the freeway, set cruise control to a maximum of 50 to 60MPH to optimize your gas mileage. In general, bigger, boxier, heavier vehicles (such as SUVs, mini vans, station wagons, and full-size sedans), get better mileage at the lower end of this range, while smaller, aerodynamic, lighter cars (compacts, sub-compacts, and mid-size sedans) get better mileage at the higher end.
Avoid drag on your car at highway speeds by limiting your use of rooftop carriers, sun roofs, open windows, and wide tires.
When driving in a city, where speed limits are in the range of 20-35 MPH (depending on the city and type of street: residential or arterial), your best bet is to avoid short trips by combining several errands into one longer trip.
On city streets, open windows are usually more efficient than using the A/C. At freeway speeds, A/C is the better option.
Avoid hauling extra weight in your car for trips that don’t require it. So bikes, golf clubs, tools, or other items you might leave in your car for convenience even when not being used will increase your fuel usage.
Check and adjust your tire pressure once a month. Under-inflated tires increase your fuel usage.
Increase and decrease speed gradually. Avoid jack-rabbit starts and sudden stops. Remain alert at all times for road and traffic conditions and adjust your speed accordingly.
