## Does driving faster get you there quicker?

Mathematically, Speeding Only Helps On Long Car Trips The most time saved on a trip shorter than 500 miles is about 12 minutes (Trip G above). However, that’s on a trip that’s already an hour long. If the speed limit is 35 mph and you’re going 45 mph, you’re traveling nearly 30% faster than the speed limit.

## Does driving fast save fuel?

One of the most efficient and easiest ways for saving fuel is reducing the speed. Your car burns more fuel when you drive fast. For example, driving at 80km/h can double fuel consumption when compared with driving at 40km/h. However, too low or too high speed can both cause high fuel consumption.

An engine in a car going 70 m.p.h. is working harder and running faster than one in a slower-moving car. But if the higher speed is not taking the engine up to the limit of its power range, it is unlikely to damage it. An engine’s output is measured in two basic ways, horsepower and torque.
