Improve your fuel economy 

Even if you don’t drive the most efficient car around, there are still things you can do to help your gas mileage. Try taking it easier on the gas pedal, avoid idling too much, and use the best motor oil possible.

If you really want to make a legitimate change in your driving habits, putting your phone out of sight while you’re behind the wheel is a great way to start.
