Useful Advices About Fuel Saving

Jul 14, 2008
In the city the fuel consumption on the similar cars at different drivers can differ from 10 to 20 percents. If you wish to save your fuel, begin with choosing the right route. It is better to pass a little bit greater distance, but to not stop on traffic lights and in traffic tangle. This advice may be especially useful in the large cities. It is necessary to consider everything - time of day, day of week, a season, presence of any establishments in area.

The street traffic practically does not give a gain in time. The most rational mode is a driving in the general stream. Smoothly accelerate the speed and in due time pass to the raised transfer. For the cars equipped by a tachometer, it is better to hold turns within the limits of 2000-3000 rev/min. On the equal sections it is possible to drive on the fifth transfer, but at the decreased turns sometimes the consumption will be higher than on the fourth transfer at the same speed.

At long stops in traffic tangles or on traffic lights it is possible to suppress the engine. The general principle of economic driving in the city is to choose as much as possible uniform mode of driving, beforehand to stop accelerating before any obstacle.

In order to save more fuel, it is necessary to go slowly. In traffic tangles it is important to keep constant speed so it is necessary to watch preservation of a distance. In fact in the rush hours the machines are compelled to start sharply and sharply to brake, that increases the fuel consumption. Sharp start is a true way to spend fuel for nothing as by sharp pressing a pedal of gas in cylinders greater portions of fuel move. On small speeds it is not necessary to use the raised transfers as the charge of fuel raises. It is necessary to avoid also a sharp braking, especially in carburettor machines where through jets of idling the superfluous quantity of fuel is exhausted.

As well as in the city, it is necessary to drive in regular intervals without unnecessary accelerations and delays on the main roads. The optimum speed, which allows receiving a high average speed and the minimal fuel consumption, is 90-100 km/h. Its increase above 100 km/h leads to appreciable growth of the fuel consumption.

If you often need to drive outside the city, lead the following experiment: refuel the whole tank and write down the indications of the speedometer (or null the indications of daily run). On refuelling in the terminal point again refuel up to the maximum and count the charge. Next time change the mode of driving (for example, speed - not above 100 km/h) and again measure the consumption.

Thus, it is possible to calculate a rational mode for a concrete route. If you accelerate the car outside of the city, it is necessary as soon as possible to pass on the maximum transfer.

And last advice that will allow you to cut fuel consumption expenses is to not drive in general. Probably, the offer will seem silly, but you may agree, that the less you drive the machine, the less you spend gasoline. So you can go eventually, by bus or train. Lend with the car for necessary trips to your relatives, friends or neighbours.

Foot and bicycle walks are the best way to save both money, and health. And every time before jumping in the car - quite often only to reach to the shop behind a corner, - ask yourself: is it obligatory to drive the car for this purpose?
