Gas Saving Tip # 9

Kind of a drag.

Air conditioning is kind of a drag on your engine.  If you live a few traffic lights before you get onto a highway for your commute, keep the A/C off until you get up to speed on the highway.  Yeah, it may a bit warm for a few, but the Air will be nice and cold for the trip on the highway.

Also, if you have a bunch of lights and hills before you get to the highway,  switch off the A/C at take-off, and switch it on when you are at least 40 MPH.
