AAA lists the following ways to save gas for when you're between fill-ups:
- Avoid idling when possible;
- Use cruise control when possible and maintain constant speed;
- Avoid carrying more weight (the heavier your car is, the more gas you use);
- Don’t brake or accelerate too quickly; and
- Keep tires properly filled.
