2. Over-revving

Driving your car in a lower gear consumes more fuel as the lower gears are engineered to generate more power initially to get your car moving from a slow moving or stationary position.

Easing up on the accelerator allows the car, especially automatic transmissions, to shift up gear faster and smoother and reduces unnecessary over-consumption of fuel.
