How to drive your car in a fuel saving mode

Hi all to readers of this automobile blog. Today it will be a question of fuel saving that for this purpose it is necessary to make, I will not pour water at all, let’s start at once a stuffing 🙂

The increase in prices for fuel stirred interest in fuel saving methods on cars. Some simply leave the car on a parking and give preference to public transportation. However, many cannot arrive so. They still have only two options: bicycle or individual car. Then fuel saving becomes an urgent need.

How to drive the car economically

fuel-economyGet rid of bad habits when driving. For a start, reduce fuel consumption.

Pay attention to a surrounding situation. People go home, to work or to school practically on an auto pilot, being in blissful ignorance concerning load of roads and a condition of asphalt. Because of it they do not notice, how many fuels spent in vain.

Avoid sharp starts. You can like squeal of tires and feeling of how air presses you into sitting, but thus more fuel comes to the engine, than it can effectively overwork. Surplus is removed through exhaust pipe in the form of petrol vapors. Besides, you wear out tires, transmission and the engine quicker.

Widespread problem of an urban environment are constant stops. Uncountable accelerations and stops do not allow to save gasoline. Try to leave a gap in 10-15 seconds between your car and a car ahead. Carefully controlling the speed, you will save more fuel.

Know the district and plan a route in advance. People got used to be accelerated on rises where motion speed falls. This acceleration costs you fuel. Finally, all of you equally recover the necessary speed on descent. Planning of a route will allow to avoid the loaded streets, constant stops or an inconvenient land relief, not to mention wear of the car.

Support the car at peak of its efficiency

Support the car at peak of its efficiency. Perhaps, it is the best way of fuel saving.

Watch air pressure in tires that will not face the excessive resistance to the movement.
Periodic check of oil increases engine performance that leads to bigger fuel saving.
Normal technical maintenance of the air filter and hoses helps to increase overall performance of a fuel system.
Replace worn out parts, such as sensors of oxygen and various stubs. As required carry out an inspection of transmission and cooling systems.

When driving the car follow well-known recommendations. With the majority of situations, you will be helped by common sense.

Optimum speed for the movement on the highway makes 88 km/h (55 m/h). Having increased speed, you will only reduce fuel utilization efficiency. At opportunity use cruise control. It will help to avoid undesirable acceleration.
The conditioner is installed in the majority of modern cars. A problem that it consumes fuel. Leave it switched off and if necessary use standard ventilation. Remember that the windows opened at the movement increase air resistance, so and gasoline consumption.

For care of the new car use synthetic oil. It increases durability of the engine and promotes fuel saving.
Install the reusable air filter to save money and to increase fuel saving. It provides a stable air flow to a fuel system.


Having decided to install in the car the device for fuel saving, be extremely careful. The majority of such devices work only at paper, and are in practice capable to damage in the long term the car.

Things which will be required to you

  • Reusable air filters of high performance
  • Synthetic oil
