Speeding costs

Drive the speed limit. Going faster doesn't get you to your destination significantly sooner, particularly if much of your route involves stoplights, and burns more gas.

#2     use public transport :-) cars are for driving not for fuel economy :D

to track your gas expenses, use www.spritmonitor.de , its not so economical because you have to put full tank to get the most accurate and frequent results, but i dont like to drive around with an empty tank, so it fits me. check my car f.economy - www.spritmonitor.de/en/detail/189640.html

And with speed grows the possibility of you can't arrive to destination.

#4     You burn more gas going faster as well, the best fuel economy for newer model cars is at 60mph speed limit is 65 in most states, but a lot of people do 75mph cause they are just in a hurry, but you're only going to save an average of 4 minutes drive time by doing 75mph anyhow. And every time you run up on someones bumper you have to brake pass accelerate and burn extra gas just to pass.

#5     driving slower will not only reduce your gas usage but also reduce your heart rate

#6     I drive like a little old lady, I get honked at on a regular basis. I do a little under the speed limit, and I tend to coast up to most stops so I don't make a complete stop going through stoplights. I always stop at a stopsign of course, but never stop less then a full car legnth to the next car ahead of me.

This may all seem a little much, but I get 306 miles on an 11 gallon tank in my 98 ford ranger. I never have to do a double take when I pass cops to see if they are flipping a U-turn to come pull me over for something because I know I'm the least of their worries. Does wonders for the nerves though, It does lower your heart rate to drive by the rules, but the benifits to being a fuel miser are substantial when gas is almost 4bux a gallon.
