Keep your tires properly inflated to the manufacture's recommendations. The recommendations will be posted on the sticker on the door or door jam of the driver's side. Poorly inflated tires produce a lot of drag.

Slow down. Wind resistance quadruples as your speed doubles. Most cars get their very best gas mileage around 45 mph. Most cars have a big drop in mileage between 70 and 80 mph.

Don't accelerate uphill. If you can accelerate on the flats and downhill. Let your car loose a little speed as it goes uphill and then accelerate to your normal speed at the top of the hill.

If you are driving a diesel try adding just a little bit of recycled vegetable oil. Do a little research on your particular vehicle to see if you can burn recycled Vegetable oil and really save on Fuel.
