By driving sensibly (avoiding speeding, rapid acceleration, and braking), you can improve your highway gas mileage by 33 percent. Just remember: every 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an extra 32¢ a gallon!
Keep Your Car in Shape
Keeping your car properly tuned, the tires at the correct pressure, and using the recommended grade of motor oil will all help your vehicle get better gas mileage.
Choose the Right Gas
Many cars are designed to run on regular octane gas, so using a higher-octane gas offers no benefit. It just costs you more. Check your owner's manual to find out if higher priced, higher-octane gas is required or simply recommended.
