Start-up and commissioning
- If you have a diesel vehicle, wait a few seconds before starting it up, so that the oil reaches the lubrication area properly.
- If you have a gasoline powered vehicle, start the car right after you start the engine.
Use of short and long gears
- It always starts in first gear and then shifts to second.
- If you want the vehicle to consume less fuel, drive as long as possible in high gears and at low revs.
- Far from slamming on the brakes, take your foot off the accelerator and let the engine act as a brake, so there will be no fuel consumption.
Curves and Roundabouts
- Adapt the speed. When entering the curve, lift your foot off the accelerator and the car will roll by its own inertia.
- If necessary, slow down to take the curve safely.
- It calmly analyzes the entrance, width, size and moving or waiting vehicles before accessing it, adapting the speed of the vehicle.
- Use the longest possible gear, which allows you to keep a safe distance from the cars in front of you.
- Never accelerate to brake again, because you pollute more and increase your fuel consumption.
Facts to consider
- Remember to turn off the engine if you are going to stop the car for more than 60 seconds.
- The more extra weight the car has, the more fuel it will consume.
- It activates the air conditioning or heating only when necessary because fuel consumption shoots up to more than 25%.
