Tip #4 : Ecodrive!Ecodriving means smarter and more fuel-efficient driving. Ecodriving represents a new driving culture that makes best use of advanced vehicle technologies, while improving road safety. It considerably contributes to climate protection and pollution reduction. Here are a few tips to easily save fuel and money:
- Drive smoothly at low RPM using the highest possible gear: a 10km/h decrease over a 500km trip enables a 12.5% reduction in CO2 emissions and an economy of 3 to 5 liters of fuel
- Combine several trips into one: trips under 5 km are the most polluting because the engine and the pollution control system never reach peak operating temperature. Combine and cut fuel use and emissions by 20 to 50%
- Check your tyre pressures regularly – under-inflated tyres are dangerous and can increase fuel consumption by up to 3%.
