    Tighten your gas cap. According to, 147 million gallons/556 million litres of gasoline evaporate each year because fuel caps are damaged, loose or missing. So when you are finished fueling, be sure to tighten the cap.

    Avoid aggressive driving. Speeding, rapid acceleration, and hard braking can lower your gas mileage by 33%. Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph/100 kmph. Each 5 mph/8kmph you drive over 60 mph/100kmph is like paying an additional $.10 per gallon/3.5 km of gas.
