Drive Safely to save on fuel

While its important to be a good driver for safety reasons, proper driving habits can help the environment too! In order to use less gas, and reduce your oil consumption, be sure to accelerate slowly, break slowly, and maintain the speed limit. Most cars, vans, SUVs and pick-up trucks are their most fuel efficient when travelling between 50km/h and 80km/h. Going above the highway speed limit of 100km/h to 120km/h uses about 20% more fuel. However, on a 25-km trip, this spike in speed—and fuel consumption—would cut just two minutes from your travel time, which is not much.
