DETROIT - October 4, 2007: Drivers don't have to operate a hybrid vehicle in order to reduce their general gasoline consumption. By avoiding aggressive driving, pumping the brakes and keeping ones tires properly inflated a driver can help improve fuel-efficiency. In addition, General Motors reports reducing the number of times a vehicle's oil is changed can also help save money and the environment. In the past, oil changes were typically required every 3,000 miles. However, utilizing new technology, a number of today’s engines can travel up to 9,000, 10,000 or even 11,000 miles before needing an oil change.
