I spend on the average $225 a month on fuel. I am not the most aggressive driver on the road. I have to work on saving trips.

I have noticed the older I am the slower driver I become. I can remember ten years ago driving like a maniac and having the tickets to show for it. Now I take it easier and don't find driving fast as worth it. I do not want to pay higher insurance premiums or pay for a speeding ticket. Now I can also save on gas, sounds like a good deal to me.

But it's really, really hard to drive sanely in the Bay Area...

Using a combination of keeping my speed at 60 or below and keeping it steady at whatever speed I'm going I save 1/4 tank of gasoline per fill-up. I've tested this in two vehicles, and I'm very happy with my savings. I live 7 miles from the nearest town, and I combine my trips so I don't have to make the drive more than once a week. When I can, I make any necessary stops on my way home from work.
