Energy-Saving Tips

Tips and Helpful hints to keep your car running smoothly and trouble-free.

  1. After starting the engine, it is best to drive immediately. Idling can cause pollution and excessive fuel consumption.

  2. Depress the accelerator gently to drive away and change to a higher gear in time.

  3. Do not approach traffic lights at full speed. If it is clear that you will have to stop, begin slowing down well in advance.

  4. Driving at high speed (over 50 mph and especially over 60 mph) uses more fuel and causes more pollution.

  5. Avoid drag. Where possible keep all windows closed and ensure that the doors, bonnet (hood), and boot (trunk) are securely fastened.

  6. To drive economically, you need to maintain a sufficient distance between your car and the vehicle ahead. This way there is less need to react suddenly, and you can brake and accelerate more smoothly.

  7. On bends, reduce speed in time and accelerate smoothly when you are halfway through a bend. Late, heavy braking before a bend followed by rapid acceleration leads to excessive fuel consumption.

  8. If you watch the roads ahead and anticipate any likely problems, your driving style will become smoother and better controlled.

  9. Tires in good condition and at the right pressure improve both safety and fuel consumption. Be sure to check your tires regularly.

  10. Ensure your car is properly and regularly maintained. Poor engine lubrication, wheel alignment and poorly adjusted brakes can increase fuel consumption.
