Want to know how you can save fuel in easy steps? This article will tell you! The only thing you have to do is change your driving habits a bit. First let me explain the importance of saving fuel. A study suggests that our planet has only 1687.9 Billion gallons of fuel left which is approximately 53 years of fuel left in the world. Although this amount is not accurate it is said that many countries aren’t disclosing the quantity they have. So yes, fuel is surely running out which is leading to an increase in its price. So that’s why we want to help you make the best use of fuel.
1.Speed is the fuel destroyer
Well I am someone who personally loves to speed up a bit every now and then but sudden bursts of speed is not good at all. The force you put on the accelerator makes all the difference. Take 5-6 seconds to accelerate your ride from 0-30 km/h for optimal fuel efficiency. So when you apply force on the accelerator there is a strain on the engine of your machine. This reduces the fuel efficiency by 33% which is quite significant. If you are legend who uses manual gear shift just make sure you use a moderate throttle position and shift between 2000 and 2500 rpm. Driving with joy is the essence here. Speed up only when you have to otherwise enjoy your beautiful ride while saving precious fuel at the same time.
2.Steady and Cruise control
This point is almost similar to the point I made before. If you want to reduce fuel consumption by 20% then sudden dips in speed with gradual accelerations is a good way. Engines work at their best when they have a moderate to high throttle. Get a car with cruise control as it is great for fuel efficiency. This feature maintains a constant speed which keeps fuel consumption in check.
3.Say no to jamming the breaks
When you are driving smoothly without any hiccup you don’t need to jam the breaks. Coasting towards a stop sign or a red light and waiting for civilians to safely pass by is strongly advised. Applying breaks heavily wastes a lot of engine’s energy, consuming more fuel. This not only harms the fuel efficiency but also wears out your tyres saving you a lot of bucks on maintenance.
4.Avoid putting stress on your fuel tank
One of the most important habit to follow is never drive until the fuel tank is empty as it puts a lot of stress on your engine and fuel tank. Keeping the tank half full is also recommended for safety and proper exercise of engine capacity. This helps you to increase the mileage of your ride.
