Seven Easy Steps To Save On Fuel and Save Money

Hi friends,

I see fuel prices rising all over the world and from what I figured out, resources are getting minimum.
With the lack of revenue in the current world, the best option would be to save what we have got, or
in other words use less amount of resources.Its not enough to insure our lives alone, we need to save our resources too.

In such an approach, I feel some options, that could save us, from what might overcome us tomorrow.

1. Usage of bicycles as much as possible.This not only reduces the resource consumption,
  but also saves the environment from pollution, not to mention the daily exercise that U get!
2. While driving your vehicle, please stop driving like a maniac! It nearly reduces the fuel consumption  in half. This might look boring, but my folks, if you continue then you might forget to drive at all!
3. Every vehicle has its own speed limits, make sure you drive accordingly, 
  A car or truck moving at 55 mph can get about 15 percent better fuel economy 
  than the same car going 65 mph. While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy
  at a different speed (or range of speeds), fuel mileage usually decreases rapidly at 
  speeds above 60 mph. You can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph 
  is like paying an additional 24 cents per gallon for fuel.
4. Use Cruise Control Whenever Possible,It's a luxury convenience, 
  But, when used properly,like when you are driving on highways, 
  cruise control can also be a fuel saver.It smoothes out driver input,
  helps maintain an even speed and allows the driver to take a long look 
  at the road, rather than reacting to every little change in the surrounding traffic.

5.Avoid Excessive Idling.Idling uses more fuel than turning the engine off and restarting it   again. So if you are stopped for more than a minute, shut off the car. 
  Shut off your vehicle while waiting outside the elementary school to pick up your children,
  or in public places like traffic signals where you are sure that you will wait for more than a    minute.
6.Minimise the use of AC
  Usage of AC in your car might not consume much of the resource on a single day, but consider 
  it to be done for a month and you will get surprising figures of how much resource is going 
  down the drain!
7.Most important of all,please maintain your vehicle well! Care for it as if its your baby, and I am
  sure that you will save a lot of money.
