Many Americans have steered clear of traveling by plane and would rather travel by car.  In fact, according to the U.S. Travel Association, 80% of Americans prefer to use a car when traveling.

Here are a few tips on how to have a more eco-friendly road trip:

Have A Plan

Although being spontaneous is always fun, deciding where you are going and what you want to do while you are there will help you save time and fuel figuring things out.

 
Take Advantage of Cruise Control

You will save a lot of gas by limiting the amount of times you brake and accelerate.

Also, cruise control will force you to follow the speed limit, which increases your gas mileage tremendously. 

According to Greenercars.org, by driving 65 instead of 75 you increase fuel economy by 10 percent.

Driving the speed limit also reduces tailpipe emissions and will help you avoid getting pulled over.

 

Bring Your Own Food, Don’t Buy

By packing lots of snacks and meals in coolers or ice chests you will save time and gas by not having to pull over to look for food.

Using refillable water bottles, reusable containers and cloth napkins also cuts down on the amount of waste.

 

Avoid Heavy Objects In The Trunk

Reduce the weight in your car can really make a difference. Greenercars.org says that every extra 100 pounds reduces fuel economy by about one percent.
