Gas $$ Saving Tip #18

Monday afternoon, I broke this tip, oddly enough because I was thinking about this post!

Today's tip is Anticipate Hills.

You know how you are rolling along and then, all the sudden, out of nowhere, there is this hill?! Okay, you know it doesn't work that way. We usually know where hills, especially large hills, are. And, when we get half-way up and then press down on the accelerator, we kill our gas mileage!

The best way to handle hills it to give your car some extra "juice" for the last 100-250 feet before ascending. Do this, and you will save a lot of gas, especially if you are in extra hilly terrain.
