- Do not use the clutch too much.
- Drive in gear corresponding to the speed.
- Get your vehicle serviced regularly.
- A poorly tuned engine can increase fuel consumption by up to 50%
- Driving at 55mph an hour rather than 60mph can reduce fuel consumption by 10%
- Under inflated tires can increase fuel consumption by 5%
- A loaded roof rack will increase fuel consumption by as much as 5% inmotorway driving.
- Even an empty roof rack can increase consumption by 1%. If the carrier is not attached to the vehicle, remove it when not in use.
- Anticipating stops and avoiding abrupt stops will decrease fuel consumption and increase the life of your brakes and tires.
- Avoid unnecessary steering wheel movement since each sideward movement of the tire causes fuel-consuming drag.
- Maintain a steady speed.
- Avoid unnecessary braking.
- Reviving the engine just before turning off the ignition costs extra fuel and may cause engine damage.
- Take advantage of rolling resistance rather than heavy braking to help slow you down. This deceleration technique is one of the best for fuel saving.
- Avoid using the air conditioner at lower speeds.
- Changing spark plugs regularly can save a lot.
