1. Accelerate gently

It’s important to hit the gas pedal gently when you’re trying to save on gas. Avoid putting the “pedal to the metal” and try to accelerate gently each time you get behind the wheel. The harder you accelerate, the higher the fuel consumption. Be gentle when pressing on the accelerator pedal, especially when driving in the city. When you step on the pedal for about five seconds, it can accelerate your car for up to 20 kilometers per hour to a stop.

2. Drive at a steady speed

Sudden speed dips and bursts will result in higher fuel consumption. In fact, changing your speed between 75 to 85 kilometers every 20 seconds can increase your fuel use by up to 20 percent. If weather and road conditions permit, consider using cruise control when driving on a highway. 

Sudden use of the accelerator and brake pedals can also use 40 percent of your energy. Be more mindful of your accelerating and braking based on the traffic in front of you as you try to maintain a consistent speed.

3. Keep your tires properly inflated

Keeping your tires properly inflated is important not only when it comes to ensuring a smooth and comfortable ride, but also for helping you save on gas costs. Keep in mind that lower tire pressure requires more gas in order to help your car run.  Make it a habit to check your tire pressure on a regular basis, especially when going on a long road trip.
