June is the month to hit the highway and cruise to your favorite summer destination. If you’re not careful, gas can easily be wasted on these trips. The U.S Department of Energy states that gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph.
To get the best gas mileage, try using cruise control.
Cruise control keeps the car at a constant speed without using the pedal and can ensure that you won’t go over the speed limit. It will also reduce regular changes in speed that puts additional demand on the engine, which waste gas. Cruise control will also keep you focused on the road, instead of the speedometer, making you safer and more alert.
If your car is an older vehicle and does not have a cruise control, it’s easy to get one. The Rostra Cruise Control is an aftermarket cruise control product that can be installed in older vehicles.
