Conserve and Save
There are many ways to make sure you are getting the most from each gallon of gasoline. AAA's Chuck Mai talks about simple techniques to stretch your dollar when it comes to driving.

Tips for Saving Gasoline and Money

  • Slow down. Each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional 21 cents per gallon of gasoline.
  • Avoid aggressive driving like speeding, fast acceleration and hard braking.  This can improve your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and 5 percent around town.
  • Use cruise control on the highway to help maintain a constant speed and improve mileage.
  • Replace dirty air filters. A clean air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated and aligned. This can improve gas mileage by 3 percent.
  • Use the correct grade of oil. Using the wrong grade can reduce gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent.
