How to reduce fuel consumption

The price of fuel is lately skyrocketing, in addition to being a scarce commodity, so it is necessary to take measures to save fuel . With small gestures we can reduce the consumption of our vehicle and, in this way, we will also save a significant amount of money. In this article we offer you some tips so that you know how to reduce fuel consumption.

Steps to follow:


The type of driving will be one of the factors that will determine the fuel consumption, since the abrupt or sporting pipes increase the fuel consumption due to the continuous accelerations and brakings. Also, it is very important to start without stepping on the accelerator.


In the same way, it will be necessary to keep the revolutions between 2500 and 3000 (RPM), according to the engine's demand, never to take the accelerated engine, but try to drive with long gears and low revolutions.


On the other hand, the state of the vehicle will be another of the events that will most influence the cost of gasoline or gas-oil. Fuel is saved if the tires are well aligned and with the pressure recommended by the manufacturer, with the engine well regulated, the filters checked and the right oil.

Contrary to what some people believe, driving in neutral (such as downhill or downhill) will not reduce fuel consumption . The truth is that the engine will continue to consume fuel and, in addition, this driving will have negative effects in various aspects such as the brakes. In this way, it will be much more efficient to lift the foot of the accelerator so that the vehicle will lose speed but continue to circulate through its own inertia. You can see here what are the most common driving errors.


Small actions can also be carried out that will help reduce fuel consumption, such as: avoiding extra weight and items such as the roof rack, using the air conditioning only when necessary, planning the route to travel through the routes with the least traffic retentions ... With this we will try to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
