Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Most people know that they can save gasoline by shifting into neutral when going downhill, and that turning off the A/C and opening the windows conserves fuel. Unfortunately, what most people “know” isn’t always true, according to a survey published today by CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison and education site.
When asked about eight gas-saving myths, a majority of the respondents believed that six of the erroneous tips were true.

Eighty-three percent of people polled correctly believed that over-inflating the tires does not save gas.
Another 55.3 percent said that pumping gas during cool weather does not give you more fuel for your money.
However, most people fell for the following misinformation:
“I was encouraged by the fact that only 2.3 percent of people would drive more than five miles to save five cents per gallon,” said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com. “On the other hand, it’s frustrating that more people aren’t taking advantage of credit cards that earn cash back on gas. Of all the money-saving tactics available, cash-back cards are the easiest to use.”
From May 30 to June 2, 2012 CreditDonkey polled 515 Americans with eight multiple choice and true/false questions based on popular and persistent gas-saving myths.
