- Get your vehicle serviced regularly.
- Warming up your vehicle in the driveway wastes gas. Drive slowly for the first few blocks instead to bring your engine to optimal driving temperature.
- Proper tire inflation and’ wheel alignment decrease road resistance and increase mileage.
- 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%.
- Avoid unnecessary steering wheel movement since each side ward movement of the tire causes fuel-consuming drag.
- Shift properly. If you have a manual transmission, shifting into high gear as soon as possible without straining the engine reduces drag and uses less fuel.
- Smooth, gradual acceleration increases mileage; rapid starts waste gas. Try to maintain a steady rate of speed and take advantage of timed traffic lights.
- Avoid unnecessary braking.
- Maintain a steady speed.
- 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 method.
- Changing spark plugs regularly can save a lot.
