Prices for automotive fuel are constantly increasing as the world's oil consumption continues to grow. It is highly unlikely that we will ever see oil prices go down, unless we manage to discover some kind of alternative fuel which is easily renewable. There are a few secrets which the large oil companies don't want you to figure out, which can help you to reduce your fuel consumption. The processes, when properly implemented, allow you to gain a substantial increase in mileage, which in turn helps you to save on fuel costs and makes the world a cleaner and greener place. The increase in mileage is so great that these processes are collectively called 'hypermiling techniques' and those who successfully manage to reduce their gas consumption and therefore save costs are called hypermilers for being part of the community of people who have increased their automobile mileage significantly.
