"When you pile up your car payments, gas, and insurance (and traffic tickets),
your car expenses probably total thousands of dollars per year.
But if you're like me, you'll be shocked to discover that most of it is a complete waste!
That's why I guarantee you savings of 60% or more once you learn..."

18 Tips for Saving Money on Gasoline by Fisher Swanson
Gas prices are on the rise again!
Here are some tips to help you conserve gas and save money
as we approach summer gas prices.
1. Keep your car tuned up. Cars in poor running condition use more gasoline.
2. Plan trips well to avoid unnecessary driving.
3. When you run your air conditioner you get much worse gas mileage.
Use your air conditioner sparingly. If you have a lower setting, use it.
Turn it on until the car gets cool, then turn it off and let the fan
circulate the cool air. Never run your air conditioner with your windows open!
4. Keep your windows closed when traveling at high speeds.
Open windows cause additional drag and lower your gas mileage.
At high speeds, an open window can use more gas than many air conditioners
(especially if they are on a low setting).
5. Check your tire pressure. Over-inflated tires can actually
reduce your fuel efficiency, so don't overfill.
6. If at all possible, change your work start time to avoid grid lock.
Stop and go traffic hurts your gas mileage.
7. Take unneeded items out of the car. You don't need to carry
snow chains around with you in the summertime. Just make sure to
put them back in when winter comes around.
8. Try not to idle your engine for long periods of time.
If you are stuck in traffic and you don't think you are going to go
anywhere in the next five minutes, you may want to turn your car off.
9. You no longer need to warm your car up for long periods of time,
especially new cars. New cars are made to run when cold.
10. Don't travel at fast speeds in low gears unless you need the
compression to slow down.
11. Try to drive the speed limit.
12. Try to accelerate slowly when leaving the stop light.
It's not a competition with the driver in the lane next to you.
The fastest person through the intersection just gets to spend more on gas.
13. No need to buy the highest priced gasoline. Most cars are built
to run on regular unleaded. Check you owners manual or consult a mechanic.
I have had many tell me that the more expensive gas is a waste of money.
14. Revving the engine needlessly wastes gas. There is no need to
rev before you turn your vehicle off.
15. If at all possible, try to arrange car pools with co-workers to
share the cost of commuting to work.
16. Walk, bike or run to your intended location whenever possible.
17. When the price is sky high, don't fill up. Wait for the price
to go down before you fill up your tank. Filling up your tank when
the price is peaking lets gas companies know that you are willing to
pay ridiculous prices for gasoline.
18. And last, the biggest and most important step towards saving money
on gas is always try to purchase vehicles that get good gas mileage.
The difference between 20 miles-per-gallon and 40 miles-per-gallon is huge.
When you need to buy your next automobile make sure that fuel
economy doesn't get lost in the shuffle. Buying a compact car
with good gas mileage is both friendly to the environment and
your pocket book. You will enjoy the savings throughout the life
of the vehicle.
The first thing you will want is a clear understanding of what you
are looking for in a car. It's best to narrow your search to a
particular make and model that both fits your needs and has a
good track record. If you go to a car lot for a particular car
and find yourself being steered towards a completely different
car don't buy it that day. Go back home and research it thoroughly.
Edmunds.com has a great tool for comparing car features.
If you can look pass the coarse language on
this site , you'll find your gem to reduce gas prices hidden away
waiting for you. This $3-million guy pretends to be a real jerk
but has excellent making money on the Internet strategies!
