St. Patrick’s Day isn't the only important green part of spring. Driving green or optimizing fuel economy so you can save more "green" is also crucial this season. Here are a few tips to help you drive green so you can save this season:
Change your driving habits
Driving aggressively can impact your fuel economy. The faster you accelerate your vehicle, the more gas you’ll use. Speeding and sudden starts and stops can waste gas.
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) speeding and other aggressive behavior behind the wheel can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and five percent during city driving.
Driving the speed limit is always the best option for fuel efficient and safe driving.
Gas mileage decreases quickly when driving more than 50 miles per hour.
Increase speed slowly and brake as slowly and softly as possible.
