Green driving tips you actually use?

For the past several years, we’ve published lots of green driving tips. So have others, and I’ve read many of them. Even so, I openly confess to enthusiastic early adoption of many such tips but fairly poor long-term persistent use.

Examples of my failures include slipshod attention to tire pressure, using my car as an auxiliary storage location, replacing my worn, low rolling resistance tires with a set that hug the road a little better, and driving faster than I should.

On the other hand, I count several successes: increased use of cruise control on my Prius, practicing super-smooth shifting on my manual transmission, and performing routine maintenance tasks (other than tire pressure adjustments) with clocklike precision.

As we approach the summer season, I want to solicit your successes with fuel-efficient driving so we can publish a roundup of practices our readers find practical. Send them our way, either by commenting below or by sending email to We look forward to sharing.
