Drive in gear corresponding to the speed.
Get your vehicle serviced regularly.

A loaded roof rack will increase fuel consumption by as much as 5% in highway driving.
Even an empty roof rack can increase consumption by 1%. If the carrier is not attached to the vehicle, remove it when not in use.
Avoid "Jack Rabbit" starts, not only do they increase fuel consumption, but are hard on your tires. Anticipating stops and avoiding abrupt stops will decrease fuel consumption and increase the life of your brakes and tires.
