If you are on a long road trip, it is always necessary to maintain the speed of the car and keep it low. High speed or variation in the speed can cause extra use of fuel. As the UCS (Union Concerned Scientists) have mentioned, if the car slows down to 55mph, it can increase the efficiency of the fuel by 30.6%.

Idle engines use more fuel
