TIPS FOR SAVING GAS! We all need it

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential California Realty
1. Drive Slower. Traveling at speed limit can save up up to 21%. 2. Keep windows closed when traveling at high speeds. Open windows can cause wind drag reducing your milage by over 10%. 3. Drive steadily. Speeding up and slowing down wastes fuel. 4. Remove excess weight. 5. Keep tires properly inflated. 6. Avoid Long Idles. It takes less gas to restart it than what is being used while sitting idle. 7. Replace dirty Air filter. I hope you try it!!! It has been working for me!!

And fill your tank when you're at the gas station! Smaller fill-ups tend to drain more...

I have been doing the "coasting thing"  and cut the gas off when I see a red light or when I am nearing a stop sign.  Started that around November and the savings have been amazing! 

Yesterday when I was hiking across town and looked in my rear view mirror (I always fear being rear ended when I cut off the gas) I noticed several cars behind me in other lanes doing the same!
