How to save fuel

Any savings for the family budget - good.And saving gasoline is no exception, especially if you travel frequently and over long distances.And, as in any economy, you need to start small, paying attention to what seems at first glance a trifle.

For example, if you compare how much consumes gasoline at the same distance of a car with the windows closed and the open, you will be surprised to find that it is costing you extra half a liter per 100 kilometers, and the number increases withspeed.That's the first way to save - to keep the windows closed unnecessarily.Incidentally, the air conditioner consumes petrol even more - up to two liters per 100 kilometers.

In addition, you should be aware that the oven will require working about 1% of your gasoline stock and high-beam headlamps - from one to two.Pay special attention to the generator, if the belt is stretched slightly or oxidised terminals, you can lose up to seven percent.

an important role in fuel consumption is and how well fixed wheel, and what i

s the state of the twisting mechanism.To test this, try to do a test on the stick.To do this, your car should drive on a flat road about 400 meters at 60 km / h speed.If you have traveled a shorter distance, which means that the motor works harder and fuel costs are significantly.Moreover, the less distance you have traveled, the more significant your problem, so you need to pay attention to the front brake cylinders.

important role played by the tire pressure in fuel economy.Experts say that every 0.3 atmospheric pressure shortfall turn around for the owner of the car fuel additional losses of 7-8 percent.But the pump is not worth it, since it reduces the car's handling.For those who love to ride in the summer on the thorns, you should know that it is not only leads to wear of the wheels, but also to excess fuel consumption - about 6 percent.

Experienced drivers know that the softer and more evenly moving the car, the less fuel it consumes.There is such a thing - "economic rate", which is indicated in the documents on the car.In particular, for Russian cars is about 80-90 km / hour.At this rate, you can save about three liters of fuel on average consumption.But sharp strata, turns and other driving pizhonstvo will cost you an additional fuel consumption up to 10 percent or more.

divisive question of whether you need to turn off the engine if you are standing in a traffic jam.Here you will evaluate if the cork for a long time, then stop the engine without hesitation, but if the car is in motion, then start and restart, you will be wasting more fuel than a regular engine.And do not turn off the engine at traffic lights - is not justified.
