Easier on gas

A: American Trucks Are Pointlessly Killing People. They're too big, and the reason is aesthetics, not practicality, writes Ryan Cooper.

B: People have the right to drive whatever makes them happy. I think the people who modify diesels so they blow black smoke and crap all over everything should be open season. I personally have a truck(an old one with dents) that I use as a truck. For towing and hauling stuff. It also serves as a backup to my car. I think cars that are easier on gas are a better commuter vehicle. But whatever.

- Hi guys! I Googled and couldn't find the meaning of "to be easier on gas". What does the phrase mean in this situation?

Thanks so much!

To "go easy" or "be easier" on someone or something means to be gentle on. In this case, a car that is easier on gas is a car that uses less gas.
