> Be Gentle on Brakes: If you’re like me who hates brakes, avoid hard stops and go for a long gradual stop. Hard stops waste the kinetic energy it already generated from your gas into useless heat.

> Accelerate Fast:
Many think that accelerating slowly improves their fuel economy, but its the other way out. Your vehicle has poor fuel economy at lower gears. Hence reaching 50mph in 10sec is more efficient than 50mph in 20sec.

> Close Windows & Use A/C The effect of windows and a/c is more less the same, But the drag due to open windows increases with speed. If you’re keeping in below 50mph, open windows and turn off A/C. If you like to fly with your car, close the windows and use A/C.

> Care for Tires: Make sure your tire is inflated with good tire pressure. A low tire pressure drinks your fuel. Check it at least twice a week.

> Keep it Warm: A warm engine gives best fuel economy.So next time if you have lot of stops to make, hit the farthest one first
