How to reduce fuel consumption?
- 1. Always monitor the pressure in the wheels. If the pressure is below normal, you consume 2 to 10% more fuel. Suppose that in six months you have traveled 20,000 km and you have a consumption of 10 liters per 100 kilometers, the cost of gasoline is 25 rubles per liter. Therefore, if, due to low pressure in tires, fuel consumption increases by an average of 5%, then you will throw 2500 rubles to the wind. Just like that, just because the tires did not let up in time.
- 2. Every extra 50 kg of weight in your car increases fuel consumption by 2%. Do not drive with yourself unnecessary tools, building materials and much more, which has a special feature for a long time getting stuck in our trunks.
- 3. The included air conditioner increases fuel costs by an average of 10%, while open windows are only 2-4%.
- 4. And remember that driving at a uniform speed is more economical than driving with constant acceleration and braking.
