5 Tips for Being a Fuel-Conscious Driver

Regardless of where you’re traveling around Tustin, whether you’re running errands around town or going on a road trip, these tips can help you become more fuel efficient and save you at the pump in the long run:

  1. Accelerate Softly: Gently press the gas pedal; the harder you press on the gas, the more fuel you’ll use. A good rule of thumb is to take up to five seconds to get your vehicle from stopped to 10 mph.
  2. Plan Ahead for Traffic: Planning ahead for traffic is another way to save fuel, as sitting in stopped traffic is not good for fuel efficiency, and stopping and going can lead to stress on your drivetrain. To get around the rush, leave for your destination 15 minutes earlier.
  3. Avoid High Speeds: Vehicles are usually more fuel-efficient when they are driven between 55 and 65 mph on the highway; however, you should always do the posted speed limit in the area.
  4. Coast to a Stop: Instead of hitting the brakes hard, coast to a stop if there are no other cars ahead of you. Just take your foot off the gas pedal and slowly coast to a stop. How can you save fuel when driving on hills? Drive slowly up the hill, and then coast down, using the vehicle’s momentum.
  5. Use AC at Highway Speeds: When you are traveling on the highway around Anaheim, it’s best to turn on the AC. Putting your windows down increases drag, and can put more strain on your engine, causing it to work harder.
