Х Smooth, moderate operation can yield up to 10% savings in fuel.

Х Steady speeds without stopping will usually give the best fuel economy.

Х Idling for long periods of time (greater than one minute) may waste fuel.

Х Anticipate stopping; slowing down may eliminate the need to stop.

Х Sudden or hard accelerations may reduce fuel economy.

Х Slow down gradually.

Х Driving at reasonable speeds (traveling at 55 mph [88 km/h] uses 15% less fuel than traveling at 65 mph [105 km/h]).

Х Revving the engine before turning it off may reduce fuel economy.

Х Using the air conditioner or defroster may reduce fuel economy.
