Let’s face it, fuel prices are one of the things that we have absolutely no control over. Political turmoil, high demand, and dwindling supplies are making oil one of the most turbulent commodities in the world. Since we can’t all go out and buy hybrid or electric vehicles, we are forced to try to make the the best with the resources we have. With that being said, there are several steps that you can take to cut fuel use significantly without significant upfront costs or a distruption to your operations.

  • 1. Reduce vehicle weight – for every 10% increase in weight, fuel use increases by 5 to 10%.
