    #1 Stop using your fucking brakes so much. The only reason you're hitting the bakes is because you stepped on the gas pedal for too long.

    #2 Seems a lot of people need to rest their foot on a pedal, so if it's not on the gas it's on the brake. Fucking idiots, put your foot on the fucking floor and let your vehicle roll.

    #3 PAY ATTENTION! Just because the jerkoff in front of you hit their brakes for no reason, doesn't mean you have to unless you're going to hit them. Let it roll until they start to pull away and then resume a gentle acceleration.

    #4 About to go down a long hill where you know you'll need to hit your brakes? Let off the gas way before the hill and let your vehicle slow down, then let gravity get you back up to speed.

    4a. It's OK to go a 1 or 2 mph over the limit when you are going down a hill. Don't hit the fucking brakes just to get down to 30.

    Yield means look at the intersection before you get there then drive through if it is safe. Most people don't even think of checking for traffic until they are on the intersection.

    I save a lot of gas by tailgating. It's the drafting effect.

    #7 See the light is red ahead? Let off the gas and roll until it turns green. It uses so much more energy getting your vehicle back up to speed from a dead stop than it does when it's rolling at 20 mph.

    when parking in a lot, pull thro to the space so you're facing out, so when you leave you dont have to back out, stop & then go forward, thats gas used going nowhere & adds up..overcoming the intial ineartia by starting stopping uses the most gas.
