Welcome to EM

You might ask AlohaSpirit for tips, he also has a long hill to climb each day, iirc.

If you're really serious about saving fuel you may consider leaving the car at the bottom of the hill and walking the rest of the way. It doesn't have to be at the very bottom, it can be anywhere, like before a steeper part. It saves a ton of fuel and keeps you fit. I've read about people who do this - they usually find someone next to the road who they can rent a few square meters of property from and park there. Of, course, you can drive all the way up if the car is needed at home.
