|Don't forget about combining trips where possible. Engines are more efficient when warmed up to operating temperature; making one longer trip with multiple stops will use less gas than a series of short trips. |

|This is by far the best and most sensible FUEL saving tip I have read anywhere. Thanks so much for sharing this out. Wish every driver on the road is able to read this before every drop of gas gets wasted some more every minute and every second. More power.|

|Great site; planning a trip and deciding which vehicle to take and whether or not to take the camper; if we take the camper, it is a larger vehicle. The mpg at a lower speed allows us to take the camper and not pay for a hotel. Nice to plan using this calculator!|

|This is misleading. The "best" speed to drive is 60 on the highway, therefore your calculator of savings is wrong. |
From the EPA website:
While each vehicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at a different speed (or range of speeds), gas 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 $0.24 per gallon for gas.

| Thanks for the comment Tom. Most researchers including the Union of Concerned Scientists and those at drive55.org believe that 55 mph is the most economical speed to drive. Just because "gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph" that doesn't mean that 60 mph is the best speed to drive. It just means that the difference between 55 mph and 60 mph is very small compared to speeds over 60 mph. Links:|

|This info should be made available on TV, Radio, newspapers, |
magazines as I have had a friend trying to help me re RPM's and MPH and what/how the RPM's would save me money.
Gas prices are rising faster than we can absorb into our bidgets and these few tricks may help everyone a little, if they knew what to watch for and follow all tips.
Thank you for this info!

Download an app for your smartphone. The best app to find cheap gas prices is Gasbuddy, itís available for iPhone, Android and Blackberry.
Try signing up for MBNA Smartcash Mastercard. You can sign up for free online through http://www.mbna.ca/index.html. They offer 5% cash back on gas and grocery for 6 months and then 3% thereafter. Itís a pretty good pick for todayís costly oil purchases. Itís better than Petro Canadaís CIBC mastercard which letís you save 2cents per litre.
