Hypermiling To Increase Your Gas Mileage

REGION 8 - The high gas prices has some of us trying to get every extra mile per gallon out of our cars that we can. A new fad called 'hypermiling' (hyper - mile - ing) is a way of driving that optimizes your gas milage.

It involves a few simple steps:

First start recording your gas milage. The easiest way is with your trip odometer.

Second - don't drive agressively. Slow down and ease off the brakes.

Third - don't race to the next red light. Slow down and coast to the next light or intersection - this will save you gas.

And fourth - slowly accelerate after stops.
