This late-70s film, distributed to Bell System employees, aims to teach phone company leadfoots about the value of saving gas. It features an enlightened supervisor who, with the assistance of a real-time miles per gallon meter, teaches his wayward employee the value of smart driving. Techniques explored include:
- Keep tires inflated
- Schedule regular tune-ups
- Stick to 55 MPH on the highway (less gas needed to push the air)
- Don’t top off the tank
- Accelerate smoothly
Please ignore the irony that the sedan that they’re cruising around in achieves a “typical” 12 MPG while cruising around town. It was the 70s, after all.
