Eco-Smart Driving Tips

Maybe an electric vehicle, biodiesel engine, or hybrid car is out of reach right now, but you can still drive your current car in a manner that saves gas, money, and the environment. Sierra Club Green Home learned some fuel efficiency tips from Ford at this month’s auto show in Detroit, and we’re only too happy to pass these along.

Did you know, for example, that if you’re driving over 50 mph you actually save gas by using the AC instead of rolling down the windows? Or that using the right motor oil usually improves your fuel efficiency by 2%? Considering how many cars using gas are already on the road, we think it’s important to pass these on. Check out Ford’s Web site for the full list of ways to save gas.
