Fuel Saving Tip: Slow Down in CHICO

There's not much CHICO residents can do about the price of gas in CA, but we can control - up to a point - how much we use. Our driving habits can dramatically affect our fuel economy.

The first thing we can do is watch the go-pedal. Hard acceleration just sucks the gas. Gently leave stop lights and plan lane changes so you don't need to floor it. That can save you hundreds of dollars a year in improved fuel economy.

Go a little slower on CA roads. CHICO residents who go more than 60 mph/100 kph will see their drop dramatically. Leave early so you don't need to rush to be on time. And cruise control is your friend – steady speeds use less gas.

Plan errands ahead. Make fewer trips by combining errands around CHICO.


Hey, at current CHICO gas prices, a lead-foot might as well be a gold foot.
