Cut Car Fuel Costs


Shift into High-Gear Cost-Cutting

While there are lots of fuel-efficient car options, for those who haven’t yet anted up for payments, there are lots of driving changes that can help cut fuel costs.

  1. Air conditioning adds 10% – do without it when you can.
  2. Avoid quick starts to cut costs, while accelrating quickly adds to your cost of driving.
  3. For those with automatic transmissions, driving in the highest gear cuts fuel costs.
  4. Drive more slowly – drive 65 instead of 80 to save 25%.
  5. Drive 60 instead of 75 and save 25%. Just get into the slow lane and smile all the way to the bank.
