    There are several things you can do to reduce friction when driving. The easiest is to take all that extra weight out of your car before driving. If you don’t need all those tools or beach chairs in the trunk, don’t bring them. Try to keep your windows rolled up and make sure your tires are filled. If you never use your roof rack, you might consider taking it off your car. Ensure that your car is properly serviced and that all the parts are lubricated. Otherwise, the grinding of the gears can really increase friction.

    Other tips to save gas: avoid stop & go traffic, accelerate more gradually, and use cruise control when possible. Maintaining a 55mph speed limit on highways has been found to be much more efficient than going 65 or 75.
