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”. Put most simply, this technique is accomplished by choosing a “target” rate of fuel consumption and ensuring you don’t fall below it on hills (or in very strong winds, or any conditions which cause load to vary for a given speed). 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.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?
