Adjust Your Driving
• Stay close to the speed limit. Lower speeds provide greater fuel efficiency than higher speeds.
• Keep your car light by leaving heavier objects at home. The more weight that your car carries, the more fuel it needs.
• Use cruise control for long stretches on roads like freeways, except on hills.
• Try to avoid toll roads if possible. You don't have to pay the toll and you have fewer stops and starts if you do not have a toll pass.
• Plan your errands so you do not have to make multiple trips to the same general area during the week.
• Use the most fuel efficient vehicle you own.
• Coordinate errands with a neighbor; take turns driving to the grocery store.
• Make a list of what you need for the week to make the fewest trips possible.
• Take public transportation or carpool.
• Ride a bicycle.
• Participate in community car programs where cars are available for "loan" use by residents at sites throughout the city.
