5 Steps to Improve Fuel Efficient Driving Habits 

To learn how to be fuel efficient on the streets of Stratham, follow these 5 simple steps to learn how you can save fuel while driving on hills, on the highway, and in the city: 

  1. Accelerate Softly: Practice accelerating more slowly. This will allow the vehicle's momentum to do some of the work in speeding you up, and take some of the burden off of the engine. 
  2. Plan Ahead for Traffic: We said we had tips for stop-go-traffic. To be blunt, we recommend avoiding it altogether. Next time you're at work, see if you can negotiate with your boss and leave earlier in the day to avoid rush hour. 
  3. Avoid High Speeds on the Highway: Avoid high-speeds. Cars use more fuel when traveling at higher speeds. We recommend staying within 55 mph and 65 mph on the highway to optimize your fuel economy. 
  4. Coast to a Stop: Hard braking makes your engine work harder to adapt the random drops in speed. Try coasting to a stop instead. 
  5. Use Air Conditioning Sparingly: Your air conditioner can increase your car's fuel consumption by as much as 20%. Rather than blasting it continuously, use it sparingly, and then use the "recirculate" feature to keep the cold air you generated in your car.
