Even if you can’t afford or find a new hybrid or CNG vehicle or you’re waiting for the new Chevy Volt, Tesla sedan or the plug-in version of Toyota’s Prius, there are simple, affordable and effective ways to improve your gas mileage.  You can save money and do a little less damage to the environment while enjoying the many road trips featured on OpenRoad.TV.  (These tips also work anywhere you drive, of course.)

EcoDriving USA is a website sponsored by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and supported by Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger of California Bill Ritter of Colorado.  There are driving tips and mileage calculators to point out where you can increase your fuel efficiency.  A good place to start.

What tips do you have on traveling greener?  We’d love to hear them.
