How is it possible to not waste fuel after filling up at the pump? The following are 10 tips to save:
Make sure the gas cap clicks three times. Every year, Americans let 147 million gallons of fuel vaporize.
Gas up during the coolest part of the day. You get more liquid because the gas is more dense.
Remove bike racks or cargo carriers from the roof. Roof carriers can cut your mileage by 10 percent.
Empty your trunk of everything but the spare tire.
Keep tires properly inflated.
Roll up your windows, especially at high speeds. The wind resistance can hurt your mileage as much as the air conditioner.
Use cruise control and drive the speed limit. That can save you as much as 11 percent.
Turn off the car when picking up the kids. Starting the car uses less gas than idling.
Plan your day efficiently so you make fewer trips. Fewer trips means less gas and more money in your pocketbook.
