Slow down to conserve fuel

Want to save gas on your drive? Try slowing down. I kept our car between 55-60 mpg on the drive to and from Decorah, Iowa yesterday and managed to average 54 mpg. I was driving a 7 year old Prius. As someone who likes to conserve energy, I discovered it really helps to have a consumption meter on the dash that shows which speeds are best for fuel economy.

One of the biggest challenges in order to conserve energy while driving is the willingness to NOT go with the flow.
