Are gas prices killing you when you drive your truck or suv? Are you feeling the pinch and thinking of selling and moving into new Hybrid (such as the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid) or a sub-compact car ... or even a scooter? Financially, you've already spent money on your vehicle (purchase price and depreciation), selling at a low-point in the market might not make the most sense financially as it may take several years to make back the money you've already lost. Perhaps it's time to look at getting the most of of your current ride and discovering if they're a way to avoid the pain at the pump. Let's start a discussion where everyone can pitch in ideas and let's come up with a top 10 ways to cut fuel costs. I'll start it off with the first five and let's get your comments for what works. Keep your vehicle well maintained. Good tire pressure is a key. Do all the proper maintenance including filters and oil changes. Cut back your speed 10%. (or more) Are you used to driving 80? Try driving between 70 and 75 and you'll save fuel. Used to driving 70? Knock it down to 60 to 65 and you'll see savings at the pump. Drive at a steady speed. Watch out for those jack-rabbit starts off the line and let your foot off the pedal when you're coming up on a stop. Try to avoid rush-hour traffic. This is hard in a lot of the country, but NOTHING costs more fuel than 25 MPH stop-and-go rush hour traffic. Even the most fuel efficient car is going to get 16 MPG in heavy freeway traffic. Forget what you'll get in a full size truck. Go to work early or carpool with a friend to get into the HOV lane. Factor fuel into trips A friend had a $5 pet turtle die after getting home from the pet store. It would use 2 gallon of gas to get back to the store for a refund, that's about $8 at current fuel costs. They saved money by not bothering to get a refund.
