On everyone's minds now is how to save money on gas. You could get a smaller car, trade that SUV for a hybrid, or get a scooter. All those things cost money. How about a way to save a lot of gas for free? No I'm not talking about riding a bicycle or walking.
Most of you remember back in the 70's when the Federal speed limit was 55. This was put into place to save gas. Well, it does! Most cars get the best gas mileage between 30 and 60 mph. Anything over 70 and the gas mileage goes down exponentially because of wind resistance.
I'm not saying we go back to a mandated 55 mph speed limit, but if you drive 60 or 65 you'll see a difference. My car has a digital readout that shows average and current mileage. It proves it.
