Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down Around Van Nuys

    />  

There's not much we can do about the price of gas in Van Nuys CA, but we do quite a bit about how much we use as we're driving on our Van Nuys streets.

Our driving habits can dramatically affect our fuel economy.

Slow Down In Van Nuys for Fuel Economy The first thing we can do is watch the 'go-pedal'. Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don't need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year.

Go a little slower on the freeway to Los Angeles. Once you're going more than sixty-five miles an hour your fuel economy starts to drop dramatically. Leave early so you don't need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speed uses less gas.

Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands.

Hey at current gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot.
