When the price of gas went up drastically, I did some research and decided to change the way I drive. I was able to improve my gas mileage by over 25%. At today's prices, that comes out to a savings of $20 for each weekly fill up for me. If you're like me and have read up on this topic on the internet, you won't find much new info in this short book. If you haven't, this book offers practical advice on how to improve your gas mileage.

The topics include:
Chapters 1-3: Your driving and tips on improving gas mileage
Chapters 4-5: Replacing your current car, when the time comes, with a more fuel efficiant one
Chapter 6: After-marketing mods to improve fuel efficiency

There are also appendices that address how the practices in the book help you to increase the life of your car and its trade-in value, hypermiling, how politics and the environment will affect gas prices, and the promise of new technologies in the future.

(Note: I purchased this Kindle edition when it was free. At that time I rated the book 4 stars but I'm not sure I would have reviewed the book as favorably if I had paid full price. As I stated, much of the information can be found on the internet if you want to spend the time looking for it.)

The "tips" and things to do in this book are really nothing new - I've been hearing most of the information contained here for decades: ease off the accelerator, accelerate slowly vs. tromping on the gas, inflate your tires to the recommended setting, plan your trips, etc. In other words, with everything that has been thrown out to you in the media, this is pretty much old hat. I could see, however, it serving as a reminder to people on various things you can do.

I picked the Kindle version of this book up for free during a promotion, and as I type this review the Kindle version has reverted back to $7.99. Save your money for a couple of gallons of gas, and do a Bing or Google search on gas saving tips and strategies.

Format: Paperback
This book has some good tips, but unfortunately most of the book is just filler and common sense. It would have been better if the author had provided more information on things like driving at slower speeds, which provide serious savings. But most of the book is full of common sense, including the author's brilliant advice to not pick up hitchhikers because of the added weight (and reduced mileage) they add. Almost no time is spent on the subject of hypermiling, either.

I got this book off of the free list, but I didn't look at the price. Amazon charged me $1.99 for it. Don't do like I did and not look at the price because it is on the free list.
