Increasing Your Gas Mileage By Changing Your Driving Habits

So many people complain about their gas mileage and the price of fuel. But there is one way to save a good 5 to 10 percent of your fuel costs by simply changing your driving habits.If you are driving automatic vehicle and the light turns green you should let off the gas while in drive and allow the vehicle to drive forward before applying pressure to the gas pedal and then slowly pushing forward as the car goes down the road. Another thing you should do is let off the gas pedal a good distance before you know you have to stop and allow the car to slow down by the friction of the roadway and you will save the difference in fuel from your car running at idle to whatever the RPMs would have been at had you stayed on the gas until the last minute.In the city driving if you are very careful you can save up to 20 percent of your fuel costs by just using these two techniques.

When you're on the highway it behooves you to use the cruise control.And if you want to pass it is better to pass while you are going down a slight grade rather than going up a slight grade. It is amazing how much fuel you can actually save and how you can change the number of miles per gallon that your car gets with the fuel simply following a few of these techniques.If you save 15 percent of your fuel that is the same as getting a 15 percent discount on the price of your gas. Perhaps you should think of it in this way and modify your driving habits to optimize the efficiency of your vehicle.Consider this in 2006.
