10 better mileage tips

It’s hard not to be cynical about better car mileage tips from a major oil company.

But Chevron has a series of TV commercials that offer some good tips, in a cute talking-car animation form.  Plus, these tips are going to be seen by a lot of people–I just saw it during Olympics coverage–so the exposure of these ideas will be high.

You can see the videos from their site:

  1. Slow Down
  2. Jackrabbit Starts (don’t be a lead-foot!)
  3. Trip Planning (plan your trip so you get multiple errands done on one trip)
  4. Car Pooling (duh!)
  5. Air Conditioning (they say turn off the AC, but rolling down the windows may not necessarily be better, depending on driving speed)
  6. Tune ups
  7. Check Your Tires (keep your tires inflated to the correct pressure)
  8. Empty Your Trunk
  9. Reduce the Revs
  10. Avoid the Idle
