Dear Robin,

How can I improve my gas mileage?

The easiest way to improve your gas milage is to never, ever idle. Remind friends and family members to turn off their cars if they will be stopped for more than 30 seconds. Do not let your car run while checking texts and emails. Don’t waste gas and money by idling!
