So, today I will be sharing with you some pointers on how to improve your gas mileage. I will go over how to fill up your car at the gas station? How to drive your car to improve your fuel economy?

Did you know that one of the single biggest thing you can do is make sure your tires are properly inflated? It does two things. First of all, it gets you much better gas mileage and secondly it's safer. You have less chance of a blow out when your tire is fully inflated. My knowledge on all these tips on getting good gas mileage comes from first of all 20 years in the transportation business.
