Ramona's Money Saving Tips: Fuel Economy

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.

More tips…

*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.
