Owning a car is expensive. There are the costs for maintenance, parking, car washes, auto insurance, and gas as well. In fact, depending on the car you drive you may pay us much a year for fuel as you do for your auto insurance. This especially true now, given the price hikes that followed the drone attack on Saudi Arabia's largest oil processing plant. Some people are predicting it could be weeks before prices stabilize again.

In the meantime, however, there are ways that you can minimize what you spend on your vehicle. With auto insurance, for example, you should compare auto insurance quotes to ensure you’re getting the best deal. And, when it comes to saving money on gas, you should drive with fuel efficiency in mind.

But do you know how to get the most out of the fuel you buy? Test your fuel savings know-how to see if you’ve got what it takes to stop the siphoning of your money.
