If you're like me, you've heard that slowing down while driving on the highway will increase your miles per gallon. For the past several weeks I have slowed down while traveling on the interstate and it has improved my mpg from around 23 to 27 on my Toyota Tacoma. Now, I've also been "coasting" in neutral as well, which has probably contributed to my increase in mpg. My truck is a 5-speed which allows me to easily coast in neutral. In one route to my home, I can coast downhill for 1.5 miles in neutral. I also oftentimes coast in neutral for several hundred feet before reaching an intersection. With these gas prices, give it a try and see how your mpg improve! Every little bit helps these days...
