Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down in FairbanksJan 29th, 2017
There’s not much Fairbanks drivers can do about the price of gas in
AK, but we can control - up to a point - much we use. Our driving habits can dramatically affect our gas mileage.
The first thing we can do is watch the go-pedal. Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don’t need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year in improved gas mileage.
Go a little slower on AK expressways. Fairbanks drivers who go more than sixty-five miles an hour will see their gas mileage drop dramatically. Leave early so you don’t need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speeds use less gas.
Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands around Fairbanks.
Hey at current Fairbanks gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot.
