  6. Take Care of Your Car! A properly maintained vehicle will run much more efficiently and provide better mileage to the gallon.
  7. Slow It Down! Don’t speed on the highway! This is not only a great way to stay safe, and avoid fines but it will save your fuel efficiency too!
  8. Don’t Brake TOO Hard! By anticipating the traffic and braking slowly, fuel economy may increase by as much as 20%
