Fuel Saving Tip Of The Week

Drive the speed limit-You might light to follow the “five over” rule from time to time; however, by driving the speed limit a substantial amount of fuel could be saved on long trips. Driving at speeds of more than 60 miles per hour will decrease your miles per gallon drastically, and we all know that a potential 12 to 14 percent savings in fuel is nothing to sneeze at—so slow down!
