Santa Monica, CA is full of things to see and places to explore, but there are a lot of things to see and do once you leave the city limits. We may find ourselves driving long distances to visit friends and family. Other times we may find ourselves in a job with a long commute. Whatever the reason, Express Financial& Insurance Services knows that costs add up and that there are ways to save when driving long distances.
Use Your Cruise Control
Your cruise control may be foreign to you if you don’t leave Los Angeles very often, but it can make for a more efficient trip if you turn it on. It has been said that cruise control helps maintain a constant speed when driving on the highway. When you use your cruise control you may save money which will help you in the long run.
In an CNN article a writer makes reference to a study comparing the fuel economy of two vehicles. The study looked at a Land Rover LR3, a Ford Mustang. When the cruise control was set at 70 the Land Rover got 14 better mileage and the Mustang got 4.5 better percent mileage. If the drivers had gone at self -controlled speeds they would have paid more. The owners of both vehicles would have had to stop to get gas sooner if they had not used cruise control.
Driving on the highway can be a lot like driving in Santa Monica, CA. There are lots of people on the road and that makes for a lot of traffic. It is not appropriate to use cruise control in light or heavy traffic.
