Today’s new drivers know something their parents and grandparents seem to willfully ignore: burning fuel is bad! Alongside dealing irreparable damage to the planet, burning fossil fuels can result in acid rain and poisoned air – and perhaps most noticeably, a lighter wallet.
Yep, driving is an expensive business, but if you learn to drive responsibly you can impress your driving examiner in the short run, and save a whole lot of gas dollars in the long run. And what’s great is that there are so many different ways to do so. The speed at which you drive, the route you take, how you apply the brakes, and when you shift gear, all have a say in how much gas you burn.
And that’s just the start. For a full guide on what you can do to put your parent’s driving habits to shame and save yourself a few bucks, check out this new infographic and try these techniques next time you get out on the road. Safe trails!
