TIP: Reduce gas consumption part 1

TIP: You don't have to change your car to cut your gas bill. You can get better gas mileage just by changing your driving habits, according to The Daily Green. Here are two habits that save a lot . . .and can also reduce the frustration of your fellow drivers on the road!

Avoid jack-rabbit starts and stops. Steady driving increases your fuel efficiency about 66 cents a gallon!

Don't ride the brakes. Driving with one foot on the brake pedal and one foot on the gas pedal costs as much as 35% more gas. Plus, you'll have the added expense of wearing out your brake pads sooner. Drive with just one foot and save 70 cents per gallon.

This post is Part 1 of a series about improving gas mileage by changing your driving habits.
