Are you spending too much money on fuel? You’re not alone — this is a common issue among drivers in Colorado Springs, CO. By implementing a few simple changes, you can save fuel and cut your budget at the same time.

One of the best things you can do for your fuel economy is to stick to the speed limit. The faster you go, the more fuel your vehicle uses. This is especially true at high speeds; after you reach 50 mph, every 5-mph increase in speed adds about $0.15 per gallon to your fuel costs.

Another easy tip is to stop any aggressive driving behaviors. Hard braking and fast acceleration are two common culprits; by opting for more gradual stops and starts, you'll burn through less fuel and improve your overall fuel economy. Need more?
