5 Driving Tips to Save Gas Consumption
Having a car is a necessity in a country where there’s a failure in public transportation. But the price of gas fuel is constantly increasing nowadays, so to help you save some bucks here’s what I learned to do from the experts:
Remain steady when accelerating
When I drove to our province via express way, I made sure to drive at a speed limit of 80kmph only. I consciously monitor my speed to save gas since I remember that sudden acceleration on your speed will cost more fuel. You need to learn how to calculate your fuel budget to make you more conscious when driving.
Avoid braking aggressively
Sudden brakes increases fuel consumption according to experts, so it’s better not to tailgate. This advice I guess is not only to save fuel but also to keep you safe, so better follow it.
Don’t stay idle for long
If you really want to save fuel then don’t feel comfortable using the ac and listening to the radio inside your car. Turn it off if you will wait for more than 5 minutes and just relax outside for a while.
Follow the Preventive Measure Schedule
I learned that you need to change your engine oil every 5kms or 6 months whichever comes first. Regular car servicing helps maintain your engine’s fuel efficiency. Your engine will work smoothly if you will do this.
Plan your trip in advance
Install apps like Google map or Waze and plan your trip at least a day before going to unfamiliar place. Check where is the fastest way to get to your destination and avoid traffic.
That’s the 5 things I remember doing to save fuel. You may also check your tire pressure and lessen the baggage from your car if you are driving alone. I hope you learned something from this post.
