Check the ignition. Remember that after ignition, the incorrect distance between the electrodes and uneven work is the candle intermittently increases the consumption of fuel by a few percent. Let this figure will seem insignificant, but if you to optimize the ignition, it can save you up to 10% fuel.
Follow the temperature and condition of the engine. If the coolant temperature is lower than recommended by the manufacturer, the consumption of fuel increases by 10%, but much worse in this regard, the drive not the engine is warm, which "eats away" at you to 20% fuel.Please note that the wear on the cylinders and pistons of the engine decreases compression, but this in turn also leads to a significant increase in the appetite of your car: every missing unit of compression will cost you 10% of fuel. Hence the rule: how should warm up the engine and keep him,if you want to save.
Place your order. The more you carry, the more fuel it requires. You should not drive with a year's supply of canned food in case an emergency trip to the country, in the trunk and the car should be only the Essentials: spare tire, Jack, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, set of the most essential wrenches. Remember that every 100 pounds of cargo will require in the medium to 10% of gasoline in excess of. Perfect order will allow you to save up to 30% of fuel, which before harvest was spent in vain.
In time to change all consumables. If you do not change on time air filters or use the filter elements of the wrong type, it will provoke the flow of additional 5% -10% gasoline, and about the importance of maintaining order at the spark plugs we said in step 1.
Fill the right fuel. If you're driving on gasoline, the octane rating will be lower than that prescribed by the manufacturer of your vehicle, it may reduce the amount of your check at a gas station by some amount, but the consumption of this fuel will be above normal to 50% off! True: the avaricious pays twice.
Watch your driving style. Perhaps this is the most important thing that you can do to reduce the consumption of fuel. The less you disturb the gas pedal while driving, the less your car uses fuel. We do not encourage you to drive at turtle speed, just try to keep it a constant value as long as possible. Does not accelerate hurl, then do not use aggressive, sudden braking, but at the same time is not worth to brake before every turn, otherwise then your engine will have to spend an additional fuel for climbing a hill or acceleration to normal speed.
