Summer is upon us, which means people will be hitting the road! Here are some simple tips to save money on gas:
1) Aggressive Driving
Speeding, rapid acceleration and excessive braking waste gas; by eliminating these bad driving habits, you can save up an easy 25% or more in fuel savings.
2) Excess weight
Do you carry a lot of items in your trunk? An excess amount of junk in your trunk, or carrying cargo on your roof can reduce your fuel efficiency.
*Using cruise control on the highways keeps you at a constant speed, which helps to have you gas.
*Turn off your engine when your car is in park. Excessive idling can waste up to a half gallon of fuel per hour.
