View Full Version : Helpful Gas Saving Tips!

01-22-2009, 09:36 AM

I found some helpful gas saving tips:

First of all, put regular gas in your car, not premium. Ninety percent
of vehicles only need regular gas. You don't help yourself out buying
the premium. You don't help yourself out buying the mid- grade if all
your car needs is regular gas.

Also, your check engine light -- if it's on, you're definitely using more fuel. That's according to AAA.

Another good one is gas up when it's cool. That's because when it's cool, gas is denser. You get more bang for your buck.

Also, slow down. You can save up to 10 percent the difference between 55 and 65.

And if you're idling more than a minute, turn your engine off.
You'll save money. Less than a minute, leave it run. ( I always
wondered about this one)

Tire pressure big, especially if you have an SUV. The bigger the
vehicle, the more critical tire pressure is. You can save as much as 10
percent, especially on that SUV.

Also, if you have roof racks or weight in your truck, get rid of
that and check gaspricewatch.com if you want to get the lowest price.
All you have to do is put your zip code in and you'll get the lowest

I hope this helps!
