Fuel Economy Tip – Walk or Ride Your Bike

Today’s tip is probably one of the most obvious, but sometimes it’s nice to get a friendly reminder.

Walk or ride your bike.

Like I said, this tip isn’t going to win any awards for originality, but at the same time it is a great and healthy way for you to save on your vehicle’s fuel consumption.

Since most of us live either in a city or in the suburbs, we should have almost everything we need within walking distance. I’m sure that within a mile or two of your home there is a grocery store, one of those big box shops like Wal-Mart or Target, a strip mall and a convenience store.

Despite the fact most of us have at least one of the above close to our home, I’m positive most of us can’t remember the last time we walked to one of these places.

So, do yourself a favor and when it’s nice out, put on a pair of walking shoes or hop on your bike and get to the store that way.

Who knows, you might even lose some weight, which will increase your gas mileage even more!

  1. […] Don’t drive if you don’t have to.  I think it goes without saying, but if you don’t drive you don’t use gasoline.  Fairly obvious.  Assuming it’s safe, try walking or riding a bicycle instead. […]
