4 Extreme Ways To Save Money On Gas

When I was originally thinking of recording this video, I wanted to have 8 extreme ways to save money on gas, but that was just too many. And then there tips number seven… turns out that’s illegal. Tip 6 as it turns out was a scam. And tip 5 I’d just rather not talk about, k?

So I was left with four extreme ways to save money on gas. Sure, some of them may seem insane and you may think I’m truly out of my mind by even suggesting them.

If you don’t want to watch the video, here’s the quick ‘n dirty version of what I said:

1) Work From Home – This is my solution to high gas prices. I just work from my home office. And you don’t need to start your own business to do it, many employers these days allow you to telecommute.

2) Ditch you car - If you stop driving your car think about how much you’d save, 400, 500, 600 dollars a month? Public transportation and a bicycle can do the job for more people than you’d think.

3) Hypermiling – Want to double the gas mileage of your current vehicle without wasting your money on those so called gas saving devices (they’re mostly scams anyway)? Then take note of these driving techniques. They definitely don’t teach you this in driving school.

4)Make Your Own Biodiesel – I realize that most of us have gas powered vehicles, but for those of you out there with a diesel vehicle or if you’re thinking of getting one, you can go down to your local restaurant and usually get their waste fry oil for next to nothing, and that stuff is perfectly capable of powering your vehicle if you put little bit of a fuel additive in the tank… ends up costing less than $1/gallon instead of $5/gallon for diesel.

  2. Which did turn out to be a scam method?Water as fuel?
    Because I read more and more sites stating that this “run your car on water” is highly doubtful to say the least…

  3. You would be surprised how real the water4gas systems are. Yes it is really hard to believe that you can actually get better fuel economy by partly running your car with water, but I am doing it, and you know what it gave me some results.

    If you want to find out more about my experience with using the water technology, then visit my page at http://www.toms-facts.com/water4gas.html

  4. Hey everyone, I am checking out the site and reading what everyone is saying about saving fuel, interesting stuff. I am currently helping promote one of my clients programs for anyone living in San Deigo or Boise, ID. There is currently a Road User Study being conducted by the University of Idaho. They are offering to pay you over $800 dollars if you participate in their study and here is the cool part. you don’t have to do anything, they just put a device in your car and it records your driving habits. This is the real deal so anyone from these two cities who is wanting help to pay for their gas should check out http://www.roaduserstudy.org.

    take care everyone and happy cheap gas hunting
