Slower Speed Means Better Mileage

 

 

One driver put the suggestion of driving at lower speeds to get better gas mileage and found that it is true.

The driver set his cruise at 60 mph while everyone else passed him at 75 mph and discovered that at the end of the 300 mile journey his car had made 44.5 miles to the gallon. The car used only 6.73 gallons for the trip.

Of course the model of the vehicle is going to make a difference but as a general rule, slower speed means better mileage.

There are many more tips drivers can use to get better gas mileage.
