4. Ask to telecommute 1 day a week

Working from home instead of going to the office saves tons of gas!

Not to mention the fact that you have more time to work, you gain in productivity and in the end you are happier.

More and more companies have understood this and are allowing their employees to work from home 1 or 2 days a week

If you can, ask to telecommute and you'll save a lot of fuel all year round.

5. Empty the trunk and everything in the car

It's math! The heavier the car, the more gas it consumes.

So the more people and stuff in your car, the more money you spend on fuel.

The solution ? It is simple and all found!

Just go around the car and remove all the objects (even small ones) that you find in the passenger compartment and the trunk.

The more you lighten your car , the less time you'll spend at the gas pump.

And don't forget to remove the gallery you have on the roof. Check out the trick here.

6. Don't leave your car on when you're stationary

One of the worst things you can do is let the engine idle.

You spend gas while you're stationary... Not very smart, right?

It's useless, but still a lot of people do it!

Unless you stop for less than 15 seconds, stop your engine immediately .

You will spend much less gas by stopping the engine for a few minutes and restarting it afterwards.

Think about it the next time you stop somewhere.

And don't worry, it absolutely does not damage the engine! Check out the trick here.

7. Drive slower

The best way to save gas is to drive more slowly .

What does this mean concretely?

On the highway, drive at 110 or even 90 km/h instead of 130 km/h.

The difference in terms of consumption is huge if you drive at 90 km/h and in the end you don't waste much time.

With a speed difference of only 10 km/h, it's 20% less fuel on the highway.

Worth it, isn't it?

And on the road, do not exceed 70 km/h even if you can drive at 90 km/h.

Try this technique for 1 week and you will see the difference! You will never go back again. Check out the trick here.

8. Accelerate and brake more smoothly

To spend more gas, nothing better than accelerating and braking like crazy!

Taxis that drive this way are beyond me...

Not only do the brakes wear out faster, but the car also consumes a lot more fuel.

Driving too aggressively is therefore very bad for your budget.

It is best to press the accelerator pedal gently and to brake gently using the engine brake as much as possible.

If it is your spouse who rides this way, do not hesitate to tell him to slow down to save on the budget. He will thank you! Check out the trick here.

9. Shift faster

Driving fast in 4th gear is the best way to spend gas for nothing!

Remember to change gear as quickly as possible , and this from the second.

It's simple, as soon as you hear your car's engine, it's already too late!

To save fuel, it is advisable to upshift when the tachometer displays 2500 rpm (petrol engine).

And for diesel vehicles at 2000 rpm max . Check out the trick here.

10. Close the windows on the highway

Do you think it's better to roll down the windows than to use the air conditioning on the highway?

You got it all wrong!

Driving with the windows down on the highway creates strong resistance .

Result, you consume much more than by putting a little air conditioning in the car.

On the other hand, if you are driving in town, turn off the air conditioner and roll down the windows to save gas. Check out the trick here.
