Speaking of Gas

With gas prices hitting $3.19 on island, I thought I would pass along some great tips for improving mileage:

  1. Moderate driving – Quit driving like a maniac
  2. Lower Speeds – No need to hurry
  3. Use Cruise Control – It’s amazing how much better my mileage is using cruise control
  4. Avoid Excessive Idling – Sitting at ITC for awhile? Turn the car off.

Using these tips I managed to add about 70-80 miles on a tank of gas. I’m not kidding. I used to get about 230 miles out of a full tank. Now I can stretch it out to 300 miles or more. Who needs a hybrid?
