Want a sure-fire way to put more money in your pocket? First, slow down — for every mile per hour you drive over 60, you reduce your fuel economy by one-tenth of a gallon per mile. Second, keep your rig in top running order. Preventative maintenance can lessen fuel efficiency. Third, stick to your routes. Most owner operators log 9 percent of unnecessary annual miles.
