Tips for Eco-driving
Slow down and watch speed – Drive 55 miles per hour instead of 65 to save fuel.
Accelerate and brake smoothly – Accelerating smoothly from a stop and braking softly conserves fuel.
Check your tyres – Keep tyres properly inflated to the recommended tyre pressure. This alone can reduce the average amount of fuel use by 3-4 percent. Under-inflated tyres increase rolling resistance and reduce fuel economy. They also wear more rapidly. Check the vehicle’s door-post sticker for minimum cold tyre inflation pressure.
Travel light – Avoid piling a lot of luggage on the roof rack.
Minimize use of heater and air conditioning – Use heating and air conditioning selectively to reduce the load on the engine. Decreasing your usage of the air conditioner when temperatures are above 80 degrees can help you save 10-15 percent of fuel.
Choose the right tyres– Use good quality tyres that can enhance fuel efficiency
