    HERE'S THE BIG ONE! Auto air conditioners can reduce fuel economy by 10% to 20%. Heater fan, power windows and seats increase engine load; the more load on your engine, the less miles per gallon. DAD WAS RIGHT!

    Drive steadily. Slowing down or speeding up wastes fuel. Also avoid tailgating - the driver in front of you is unpredictable. Not only is it unsafe, but if affects your economy, if he slows down unexpectedly. DON'T TAILGATE! LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS GUY!

    WOW! Keep windows closed when traveling at highway speeds. Open windows cause air drag, reducing your mileage by 10%. Not to mention what it does to your new hair style.........fix the window already!

    Manual shift driven cars allow you to change to highest gear as soon as possible, thereby letting you save gas if you "nurse it along". If you cause the engine to "bog down", premature wearing of engine parts occurs. Then you have to take it to the mechanic...anyone knows where she works?

    Avoid filling gas tank to top. Overfilling results in sloshing over and out of tank. Never fill gas tank past the first "click" of fuel nozzle, if nozzle is automatic. STAY OFF THE CEL PHONE!

    Buy gasoline during coolest time of day - early morning or late evening is best. During these times gasoline is densest. Keep in mind - gas pumps measure volumes of gasoline, not densities of fuel concentration. Yes that's Mariah Carey pumping her gas at night. .ummmmm Why isn't Nick pumping her gas?
