how to increase car's gas mileage

Gas mileage is important to many, but irrelevant to some drivers. Mileage is very important though, and it can save you hundreds of dollars, and over the years could add up to thousands of dollars.

Whenever you get on the highway, accelerate towards the desired speed and then turn on the cruise control. This will usually also help keep the RPM under 2 or at 2, and moreover will increase mileage, and other benefits also include avoiding speeding tickets.
