Tire pressure gauge
TIP: #1 factor in saving gas is proper tire pressure.
Tires can lose one pound of pressure per month; check pressure often with tire pressure gauge and follow manufacturer’s recommendations.
Follow your manufacturers’ suggested service intervals.
TIP: Fresh spark plugs, clean air filters and oil can help save gas.
Avoid idling and drive the speed limit.
When driving at slower speeds, use windows for ventilation instead of running AC; at high speeds, use AC because open windows can cause drag on the vehicle, making engine work harder.
Use cruise control when possible; consistent speed saves gas.
Remove unnecessary weight from your car.
Tighten gas cap; if it’s faulty or missing, gas can evaporate.
