1. Unload all the things you don’t need. Avoid putting items on your roof. Mileage will go up about 2% for every 100 pounds removed from the vehicle.
  2. Keep the tired properly inflated. This improved gas mileage by over 3%.
  3. Don’t drive aggressively. Speeding and unnecessary rapid acceleration and braking waste gas mileage by as much as 33% at highway speeds.
  4. Change your air filters. Clogged air filters can decrease gas mileage by 10%.
  5. Maintaining serious things such as a faulty oxygen sensor can improve your mileage by as much as 40%.
  6. Speeding wastes both gas and money. Each mile you drive per hour over 60 MPH is like paying an extra 10 cents per gallon.
  7. Use the manufacturer’s suggested grade of motor oil and save another 1-2%.
  8. Keeping your car properly tuned can improve gas mileage by about 4%.
  9. Roll down the windows at lower speeds. Use the air conditioning at highway speeds.
  10. Carpool. High occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes are usually less congested. This improves fuel economy.
