The 5 Top Tips for Being a Fuel-Conscious Driver 

Whether you’re commuting to work in the Eden Prairie area or hitting the highways for a weekend vacation, the tips below will help make the most out of your car’s fuel: 

  1. Accelerate Softly: Gently press down on the gas pedal; the harder you press, the more fuel you’ll use. Accelerate smoothly and take about five seconds to bring your vehicle up to 10 mph from a standstill. 
  2. Plan Ahead for Traffic: Sitting in stop-and-go traffic isn’t fuel-efficient and it can put mechanical stress on your car’s drivetrain. Avoid rush hour traffic by leaving at least 15 minutes early, and try finding a shortcut to reach your destination without any hassle. 
  3. Avoid High Speeds: Cars use more fuel when driving at higher speeds. To achieve excellent fuel-efficient driving habits, keep your speed between 55 and 65 mph (remember to always follow the speed limit).
  4. Coast to a Stop: Instead of constantly applying the brakes, look at the road ahead. If there’s no one ahead of you and you need to come to a stop, take your foot off the gas pedal and allow your car to coast to a complete stop. How can you save fuel while driving on hills? Lower your speed while venturing uphill, and again, use your car’s forward momentum to coast downhill. 
  5. Use Air Conditioning Sparingly: Your vehicle’s air conditioning system increases your car’s fuel usage by up to 20%. When using it, use the recirculate function instead of leaving it on full-blast.
