How to reduce fuel consumption?
Nowadays, gasoline for his car is unfortunately very expensive. Impossible to shop for it or negotiate it, you just have to accept the situation and live with the price of oil.
On the other hand, it is possible to control its gas consumption and thus considerably reduce its quantity of fuel. Here are 10 tips and advice for saving gas in your car.
Speed and fuel consumption
The faster you drive, the more your engine works and the more fuel it consumes. To save fuel, it is better to drive slowly, avoid unnecessary speed and above all accelerate gradually in order to greatly reduce fuel consumption.
Avoid unnecessary detours
To save fuel, it’s better to get straight to the point than to drive around unnecessarily. Gasoline goes down quickly in the tank so if you drive here and there for no reason, you will quickly lose your gas.
When you go out to run errands by car, why not plan all your trips and the best route to avoid wasting your time on the road and above all to avoid spending unnecessary fuel.
Don’t accelerate too fast
When you stop your car at a red block or at a stop, for example, it is better to move forward slowly rather than to start again at full speed. Thus, the engine will force much less and it will also be better for your fuel economy.
A simple tip to follow to significantly reduce your fuel consumption effectively.
Carpooling to reduce fuel consumption
Gasoline is extremely expensive these days! To save gas, why not carpool when possible? By carpooling, you will save on gas. Thus, you can also share the cost of gasoline with others which is very interesting in this period when the cost of oil is high.
Pay attention to your tire pressure
It is very important to check your tire pressure regularly. Tires give rolling resistance on the road depending on the contact patch on the ground. Reducing this surface improves rolling and therefore saves on the gasoline used in the car.
The simple fact of driving with tires that lack air can increase fuel consumption by 5 to 10%, that’s huge!
Fill up instead of gassing repeatedly
Often we prefer to save our money by putting only a small portion of gasoline in our car at a time. We think this saves money, but in fact, this essence disappears so quickly that you find yourself returning to it several times a week. At $10, for example, the bill goes up faster than you think. Not to mention the time and the fuel it takes to make a detour to the gas station. Refueling is therefore preferable if you want to save fuel in the short term.
Fuel in the region
If you live near the regions surrounding the city or if you go for a walk there, it is better to think of refueling there since very often gasoline will be cheaper there.
Buy an economy car
There are more and more high fuel economy cars sold in the market. Opting for a small economical car is a good option to save gas day after day. Cars that consume less will certainly save us financially since they will cost less gas.
Avoid using electrical accessories
Using the radio, air conditioning or even turning on the headlights unnecessarily decreases the fuel we have. Avoiding using them is therefore a good option for saving gas. If it’s not too hot, for example, why not just open the windows instead of using the air conditioning which will increase your gas consumption?
Driving a hybrid car
Driving a hybrid car is another great way to save gas with your car. The hybrid car consumes very little gasoline since it also runs on a battery. In addition to protecting the environment, you will save on gasoline, which are two advantages offered by a single car.
In addition, in 2015 and in the years to come, the choice of hybrid cars will increase considerably, offering you the possibility of buying a car that will meet your needs.
