Changing your driving habits can improve fuel economy up to 37%.
Jackrabbit starts and aggressive driving habits are costing you big time at the pump, while belching lots of extra emissions into the atmosphere. All vehicles lose fuel economy at speeds above 55 mph. That’s one of the reasons it’s the most common speed limit. Driving 65 mph instead of 75 mph reduces fuel costs by 13%, while driving 55 would save 25%. FuelEconomy.gov estimates that each 5 mph you drive over 50 mph is like paying an additional $0.12 per gallon for gas.
