104 Driving Techniques to Help You Conserve Fuel. Wanna eke out your precious mileage? Then practice a few of these tips and see how you do.

 Drive with load (DWL) AKA “target driving”.

In other words, you will back off the accelerator and lose speed (possibly also downshifting) as you climb, and gain that speed back on the descent. It’s far more efficient than pressing the accelerator more and more to maintain speed on the way up a hill and then releasing it down the other side.
