1. Keeping The Engie Tuned and Checked

Repairing a car that's not tuned can save gas mileage byan average of 4%. Replacing a malfunctioning oxygen sensor can improve your MPG up to 40%.


2. Don't Be In A Rush!


Keep a cool head and try not to resort to some poor driving habits, such as:


Jackrabbit starts (rapidly accelerating from a stop)
