Green Driving = Save gasoline|
How can you save gasoline/diesel?
Drive the right car. The following cars are gas guzzlers:
Hummer H2 + Hummer H3
Jeep Gran Cherokee + Chrysler Aspen + Dodge Dakota
Buick Lucerne + Cadillac CTS + GMC Yukon + Chevrolet Trailblazer
How can you save gasoline/diesel?
1) Check your tire pressure (ask tire shop)
Low tire pressure works like a brake - you need more gasoline/diesel
2) Check how much unnecessary things/weight
you have in your car - every pound raises your gasoline consumption.
3) Check your air filter
An engine needs air to burn the gasoline/diesel
When the air filter is clogged up, the engine has to suck harder and you need more gasoline/diesel
4) Think about how fast you drive
The faster you drive the more gasoline/diesel you burn.
Our recycling truck gets 18 mi/gallon when we drive 70 mph
BUT it run 22 miles a gallon when we drive 53 mph
Sure, it takes more time, but just take your calculator
When you have to drive 35 miles with 70 mph you need 1/2 an hour or 30 minutes.
Now, you want to save gasoline/diesel and you lower your speed to 53 mph
you will drive 9 minutes longer BUT you save ~$2 on this one short trip!
Think about how much you could lower your monthly bill!!
5) Think about using synthetic oil for your engine
Synthetic oil provides less friction. less friction = less gasoline/diesel usage
6) Think ahead when you drive and you will save gasoline/diesel.
Don't speed to the next light. When you see it is red, take your foot from the pedal.
Every time you hit the brakes, you destroy energy = your money.
And you burn more gasoline again when you accelerate.
7) Save a lot of gasoline when reducing the time you idle your engine.
"Driving is much more than turning the wheel and welding the pedal to the carpet."
Driving too fast will cost you money in two ways:
Tickets: Drivers ticketed for speeding face fines and costs that could range from $50 to $200 or more depending on where they live.
Add in insurance premium increases and the cost of fast driving becomes even greater.
Gas mileage: Aggressive drivers can spend about one third more on gas than moderate drivers, an increased cost that can add up over time. Drivers should consider using cruise control on long trips to help regulate speed and keep the car under the speed limit. That alone can be a surprisingly efficient gas saver!
The good thing about green driving is that you save a lot of money and
