Save On Fuel

  • Do not use the clutch too much.
  • Switch the vehicle off at red light stops.
  • 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 90 kilometers an hour rather than 100 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% in highway 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.
  • Avoid "Jack Rabbit" starts, not only do they increase fuel consumption, but are hard on your tires. 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.
  • Accelerate slowly on gravel or slippery roads.
  • 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.
