8 ways to save fuel
If you want to save up to 20% on fuel, thereby influencing the final cost of renting a car in Sumy, use some simple tips that every avid car enthusiast probably knows:
1. Advance gear shifting.
Injection engines of modern cars operate most efficiently at lower speeds.
2. Driving in high gear.
Select the maximum gear allowed by the engine. It is better to change speeds up to 2,000 rpm.
3. Don’t switch to neutral.
Engine braking is much more economical than coasting or conventional braking.
4. Try to use acceleration and deceleration less often.
Keep as much distance as possible. This will allow you to spend less fuel on acceleration and stopping.
5. Maintain optimal speed.
The most economical speed for most cars with the lowest fuel consumption is considered to be 90 km/h.
6. If not necessary, turn off additional car functions aimed at creating comfort and increasing fuel consumption by two to three liters per 100 km.
7. Remove excess ballast that interferes with aerodynamics. A luggage rack that has not been removed without a load will increase consumption to 1 liter per 100 km, and if there are also bicycles attached to it that you were too lazy to remove, be prepared for additional fuel consumption (up to 3 liters per 100 km)
8. Adjust tire pressure.
The optimal tire pressure specified in the instructions will reduce gasoline consumption by up to 5%.
