Don't warm-up for any length of time. Start and take off slowly.
Once warm, get to a higher gear sooner if on flat roadway.
Without heavy traffic and safe, drive 5MPH slower.
In your area, you know the traffic light sequences and where the stop signs are. Pull in the clutch and coast to stop.
If it's a major intersection and you just caught a yellow, stop, turn off the engine, put down the kick stand, and wait for over a minute.
It's unbelievable how much fuel could be saved in vehicles by just letting off the gas pedal and coast to the stop. You have enough forward motion to continue at a reasonable speed.
If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain.
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. BF
Proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance.
If criticism had any merit, the skunk would have been extinct years ago.
