Saving Up on Fuel Costs While Driving

Even the most fuel- friendly car can cost hundreds of dollars in fuel expenses due to poor fuel management. These cars as well as conventional gas vehicles benefit from good fuel economy brought about by the best use of the cars’ features.

For example, many drivers don’t bother turning on their cruise control. This can be especially important on highways or roads that are more or less straight for long stretches. Cruise control allows the car to figure out its own fuel needs, which is usually much less than what the driver thinks.

If the road isn’t straight, the terrain can still be used to help ease down on fuel. Keep a steady rhythm to your car engine’s revolutions per minute, even if it goes up and down hills and tight curbs. This allow the fuel to be burned more efficiently without wasting anything during those turns. For the best results, don’t speed up and slow down too fast, especially in the city where open patches of road only end up for a few dozen meters at a time.

There are also certain apps and websites that can tell drivers where the cheapest fuel is in their city. A difference of two cents per gallon can already help save up to fifty dollars a week if the driver is consistent with his fuel usage.
