Tips to help you save energy — and money — in your home.
The latest "gas-saving" gizmos don't deliver as promised, and may lead you to spend more than save. But there are easy steps you can take to increase your gas mileage and stretch your gas dollars.
Male VO: Heard about the latest gizmos to improve your gas mileage?
Well… studies show they don’t deliver as promised… and some can even damage your car’s engine.
But here are five easy ways you CAN save money when it comes to your car:
One: Clean out your trunk. Don’t carry what you don’t need.
Two: Slow down. Every five miles per hour over 60 costs you a quarter extra for a gallon of gas.
Three: Go online to find the least expensive gas stations in your area
Four: Turn off your engine if you’re parked and waiting.
And five: Keep your tires inflated to the recommended level to get better gas mileage.
So, remember, when it comes to an offer to boost your mileage or save on gas, exercise doubt and check it out… at FTC.gov. A tip from the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency.
