In a time of economic crisis, as in the days of constant price increases and fuel and everything, all looking for ways to save money somehow. When it comes to savings vehicle is the only way to reduce fuel consumption. There are people who save by simply not driving, and do not use their car, but also those whose car is not a luxury but a necessity, that no cars would be unable to perform his job or to work at all for some other reason. And for those who need to use a car, here are some tips to reduce fuel consumption and possibly saving some money.
Fuel consumption in the first place of course depends on the car, ie the engine, and that in principle you can not do much to reduce consumption. Another factor that also affects a lot of fuel is driving.
Aggressive driving, rapid start, riding a high speed drive, increases fuel consumption. To avoid this it is enough to always keep the engine at low revs, easy to navigate, with a light throttle. Of course neither the engine speed should not be so low that you see that the engine struggles to move the vehicle, but you find a golden mean, when you move to a flat look to your transmission is always in great gear, as this get more speed with a lower engine speed, this also applies when you move downhill. It is important to note, that no matter how much you would save if you move downhill under any circumstances do not turn off the engine, because it can be very expensive cost you if there is an unforeseen situation.
In addition to driving there are many little things by which you can reduce rather:
1) Driving in the "tail" - when you are on the open road, look at how it is possible to "attach" a van or truck, a high vehicle, and to go a constant speed behind it. This ride will drastically reduce the air resistance on the front surface of your vehicle, which will contribute to reducing fuel consumption.
2) Driving with the windows closed - each vehicle has a specific, which reduces aerodynamic drag, which is next otopra rolling one of the main resistance movement of vehicles, no matter how ridiculous it may sound, open windows while driving impair aerodynamic vehicles and thus make more air resistance, which is certainlyleads to increased fuel consumption.
3) Avoid abrupt throttle - do not accelerate quickly, try to always maintain a constant speed without acceleration, during steady departure add gas and follow obrtometar if you have one on your vehicle. Also on the highway or other open-road driving economically, it should maintain a speed of 120km / h which is within the limits of cost-effectiveness.
